Valerie Biggin is a Music Business veteran with over 25 years experience in recording, orchestral score co ordination, licensing and music supervision. Still very active in the local Music community you will find her either at the studio or in a club listening to the newest, latest and greatest - Music is her passion!
Valerie started her career as an aspiring recording engineer but ended up as the President/Studio Manager for Mushroom Studios in Vancouver for over 13 years. With additional stints at SOCAN, AMERICAN FEDERATION OF MUSICIANS and Business Instructor (Sound Design Dept.) at the Vancouver Film School, Valerie’s passion and knowledge of Music and it’s business was firmly established and respected.
In late 2009, Valerie opened The Song Rep... a music placement agency who, in a very short time, has placed music in MTV, MTV Canada, FOX Sports and Slice Networks, Hallmark, A&E, and even independent films. Along with orchestral coordination while at Mushroom for major film and TV projects, it was only a matter of time before the natural progression to Music Supervision became the focus of The Song Rep.
Valerie believes that great film and TV projects, advertising campaigns and video games all have one basic thing in common, the surreal emotional experience their audience feels with a well-placed song.

Who We Are
Sian O’Byrne’s passion for music and the entertainment industry started early, leading to her graduation from the Arts and Entertainment Management program at Capilano University, which put her in the right path with invaluable experience at her internships with The Song Rep and Nettwerk Music Group.
After graduation, Sian continued to work with The Song Rep, and a few months later with Nettwerk Music Group as well. Involved in both music publishing and label duties, Sian received a well-rounded understanding of the music industry from Nettwerk, while in turn applying her knowledge to The Song Rep. She later left the Music admin world behind to pursue her passion for Music Supervision exclusively.
Sian has now been with The Song Rep for 3 years and counting. What she lacks in years, she makes up with new knowledge of the industry and a fresh fine-tuned ear for up-and-coming music.
Over the years Sian has developed both Music Coordinator and Music Supervisor experience from various film and television projects, and developed outstanding relationships with professionals in both the music and film and television industries.
