Terror bird (n.): An extinct clade of large, flightless birds that inhabited the earth 62-2 million years ago. Once believed to be the fiercest predators in South America, recent findings suggest terror birds may have just been goofy looking vegetarians.
Did you know that due to its highly developed cerebral cortex, the Terrorbird was not restricted to pre-defined thought patterns and could adapt its behavior to deal with new situations? Well, now you know. This level of adaptability and customization is the hallmark of Terrorbird Media.
With a whole lot of passion and Regina Spektor’s Begin to Hope record to promote, we opened our doors in 2006. Since then, we’ve carved out a niche as a premiere player (and the only prehistoric, non-flying bird that we know of) in the music marketing world, staying true to our independently owned and operated roots while offering a full service approach to sync licensing, publishing, publicity, and radio promotion services. Headquartered in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, but repping hard in Sacramento, Terrorbird provides unparalleled client services with the customized approach of a boutique firm. We also make some pretty sweet swag (inquire within).
Internally, Terrorbird is all about #positivevibes. We’ve built a truly collaborative work environment (Think: lots of high fives) where each member of our team has the opportunity to curate their department’s roster with artists and labels they love and communities that inspire them.
