That's why I use Blue Buddha time and time again - they make my job as music supervisor much easier!"

- Susan Dolan/Hum Music
"Blue Buddha has some great indie bands in its catalogue - from your typical pop-rock to moody female to brit rock to hip hop with an old school feel! And they really try to be ahead of the curve. They are easy to work with and open to different pricing rates, which is helpful as each project's budget is different. "
- Lindsay Wolfington/Lone Wolf Music Supervision
"Thoughts about Charles Levan and Blue Buddha..........................There I am, pacing in front of my computer screens, the stock market is all over the place, I'm seeking sanity, peace, and most of all..........GREAT TUNES...........I look at my IM buddy list and there's Charles- a stellar and reliable source of indie rock and dance tracks. I hit him up, he replies, "what do you need?", a fire off a brief description and boom- tunes begin to flow. The rates are favorable and the deal making is straight forward. If I need to steer the creative process another direction, he'll flow with it. Good man!"
- Mark Wike/Wike Music

- Kevin Edelman/Metalman Inc.
