Cavendish – The Independent Production Music Library



Founded in 1937 (originally as Boosey & Hawkes Recorded Music Library) Cavendish Music is the largest independent Production Music publisher in the UK.

We are the proud parents of five in-house labels and representatives of some of the best library music catalogues from around the world. We have the breadth of catalogue to find something to suit your production, not to mention the experience. (although admittedly, none of us are quite old enough to have been there at the beginning).

We have the studio know how of engineers who have worked with the likes of Mark Ronson, The Rolling Stones, Pet Shop Boys & Gorillaz, and a talented team of music consultants some of whom not only DJ across the globe, but have been in some big name bands. We reckon this gives us the edge, and the ear, to produce music that our clients love.


After being acquired by music publisher ole in 2015 we are now part of the fastest growing rights management company in the world.

Founded in 2004, ole operate out of offices in Toronto, Nashville, New York, Los Angeles and now London. ole’s production music division is also ever expanding, including New York and Los Angeles based Jingle Punks, 5 Alarm and Music Box.

Cavendish music was previously known as Imagem Production Music.




Our talented team of music consultants are always on hand to provide music searches, no matter what the brief. We know our catalogue inside and out and will put together a bespoke playlist of gems for you in no time at all.


Any style. Any mood. Any project. Any time. We have a roster of award winning composers, in-house producers and a live studio, and we can re-work our existing tracks or create a brand new custom composition for your project.


So you can take our entire catalogue with you when you are on location or in an offline edit, we offer a searchable hard drive.


If you are replacing commercial tracks on UK productions for international reversioning then send over your cue sheets and we will send you bunch of clearable alternatives, absolutely free of charge.
