About Select Music Library

OUR STORY

OUR STORY

Select Music was just an idea for many years. On October of 2016, A partnership was formed between Carmine Giglio and Adam Forgione to create a music library that would only represent select tracks from some of the best unknown artists in the world. Carmine & Adam have known each other since the early 90’s when they both played music in the New York coverband circuit in their late teens.

By the mid 2000’s, Adam had transitioned his career from professional musician / composer to wedding and commercial filmmaker while Carmine continued growing his career as a pro musician earning his way onto broadway and playing with such prestigious artists like Billy Joel, LeAnn Rimes, Alexa Ray, and many more.

Adam had always understood the frustration of spending hours or days looking for the right music for each production and they both knew the struggles of making a living as a musician. If there was a way to connect both filmmaker and musician and find a mutual partnership that would help both sides solve their problems, Select Music would be the answer.

SM’s mission is built around helping filmmakers and musicians equally and understanding that both sides need a genuine company to listen and fulfill their needs.
