A powerful, instant, and cost effective way to promote yourself and introduce new audiences to your recently-released and catalog music.

Online video is now the leading medium for consuming music. While that’s a boon for artists, the downside is that amateur unprofessional recordings from random sources of live events are distributed and exploited without artists’ consent, involvement, or financial gain. Locomote Media helps you, the artist, regain control of how your fans consume your music, and guarantees that you receive the revenue.

As the Uber of live-on-location audio and video production, Locomote Media pulls together the best of legacy and new media technologies (broadcast radio and HD video) to distribute and monetize your content.

Easy and efficient — pull up, park, plug ’n play. Our mobile control room creates live mixes that sound like multi-track recordings laboriously re-mixed over weeks or months.

About Locomote

In 2016, Locomote Media is the Uber of live-on-location audio and video production, putting together the best of legacy and new media technologies (broadcast radio and HD video) to distribute and monetize your content. Easy and efficient - pull up, park, plug ’n play. Our mobile control room creates live mixes that sound like multi-track recordings laboriously re-mixed over weeks or months. Indeed, our live-to-2 track recordings have been released to the public, without further mixing, as commercial full albums by The Police, Nils Lofgrin, The Hollies, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and as singles by Talking Heads, U2, and others. In addition, we’ve produced artists from Bob Marley & The Wailers to The Clash, The Boston Pops to Ozzy Osbourne, Roseann Cash, David Sanborn, Muddy Waters, Samantha Fish, and hundreds more in various genres. Locomote Media is directed by Sam Kopper, a 48-year radio & media veteran. Actually, Sam’s very first live-to-air music mix was exactly fifty years ago - The Richie Havens Trio live on Sam’s folk music show on WAER-FM, Syracuse University. Richie told Sam a few years later that it was the tape of that live mix that gained Havens his first record label contract resulting in his iconic album “Mixed Bag.”
