Barlow & Bear perform at the 3rd Annual SCL Awards

The 3rd Annual SCL Awards

Yesterday was the Society of Composers & Lyricists’ 3rd Annual SCL Awards. SoS provided music preparation and contracted the all-star lineup of Hollywood musicians. This year’s ceremony featured performances by Aloe Blacc, Barlow & Bear, Judith Hill, Tom Scott, and world-champion accordionist Cory Pesaturo.

Jason Poss and SoS have been a part of every SCL Awards since their inaugural ceremony three years ago providing music preparation, managing the hiring of musicians, and consulting on union contracts and procedures.

Hawkeye releases today

...with Avengers on Broadway?

Hawkeye releases today on Disney+. Surprisingly, there was vocal music in the series that needed transcription and dubbing. Broadway and film music legend Marc Shaiman composed a musical number for “Rogers: The Musical” that is featured in the show. Who better to parody Broadway and the Avengers than Shaiman? Jason Poss admits to laughing out loud while working on this satirical show tune.

Bringing Encanto to the world

Encanto releases in theaters tomorrow! After a year of working, we’re proud to help share this colorful, magical, fantasy of Colombia with the world. 

This project was special for two reasons. First, colleagues of Central- and South-American descent are thrilled to see this beautiful culture portrayed in a major film. Second, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote songs that provided unique challenges for voice acting and dubbing.

Jason Poss transcribed the vocals for all songs in the film, and working with Disney Character Voices International, created new tools to simplify translating and performing the rhythmic precision required to sync with the characters on screen.

The feedback from voice actors and dubbing producers around the world has been overwhelmingly positive. We were able to make their jobs easier – requiring fewer takes and less editing. Any project this size is a team effort, and we are proud we could help our colleagues.

Where is Danita?

(She's still around)


Over the last year some our regular clients have noticed that Danita Ng-Poss, a longtime fixture on the SoS team, hasn’t been seen on our projects. While most of them know exactly why, others may not. Our copyist extraordinaire and favorite music librarian of many Hollywood session musicians has taken a sabbatical of sorts to serve the community of musicians she loves.

At the end of 2020, Danita’s fellow musicians elected her Secretary/Treasurer of the Los Angeles local of the American Federation of Musicians. She is determined to see AFM Local 47 through the challenge of the pandemic, and she will be doing that work full-time until at least the end of 2022.

While we miss having Danita on the team, we know she is making a noble sacrifice to help all of the musicians of Los Angeles. She has also made it clear that she will be back.

We wish her well and look forward to the day she is once again creating beautiful, clear parts and reminding award show musicians to rubber-band their books when they are away from their stands.
