About FML

The Company

Frog ML is an indie-focused music licensing company – we’re modeled more on the great indie labels than on any massive music library.

We’re not trying to amass the largest catalog of songs on the planet. We’re careful about our catalog. We intend to provide a hassle-free conduit between the bands working in the independent music world and the people who put music with picture.

The Founder

Tom Vale learned the ins and outs of music licensing in Los Angeles, first as a music supervisor on countless student films, and later working with the Six Feet Under music supervisors.

He learned licensing from a client’s perspective, an invaluable background for catering to Frog clients now. Through his (ongoing) work as a writer and editor for numerous indie-leaning music magazines and websites, he became familiar with a wealth of up and coming bands across the country. And he decided to put his background to use on their behalf.

Health Alliance for Austin Musicians

Frog ML will be donating 5% of our end of every license fee to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, an organization dedicated to providing access to affordable health care for Austin’s low income, uninsured musicians.
