“Belinda Yates seems to have been in my life forever.
Right from the start I tagged her as someone not to be messed with because she knew her industry well and I always knew that what she ballparked was always pretty much spot on.
I have worked on countless projects with her over many, many years, a couple of the most satisfying being two recent projects for South Australian Tourism for The Barossa – Nick Cave’s “Red Right Hand” and for Adelaide – INXS “Never Tear Us Apart”. Both had their challenges both time wise and budget-wise but she got them through.
And she’s a one stop shop when at times you have to go through a myriad of songs checking availability and costs to get the right one. Gold!”
Di Willson, Producer
“We have worked with Belinda Yates for many years. Belinda’s experience, knowledge and contacts make the process of quoting and obtaining clearance on music tracks simple, which is a blessing. She has never let us down.”
Ian & Christine Ford, CIF Productions
“Red Bull Australia engaged Belinda Yates & Associates to assist with securing the publishing rights for our event, ‘Red Bull Beat Suite’. The event consisted of a 15 piece orchestra, percussionist, 3 beat makers, 2 turntablists and 3 vocalists – Aloe Blacc, Ladi6 and Ryan Ritchie.
Given the complexities associated with the project and that the publishing was held across a number of representative companies, Belinda’s expertise was relied upon to get it where it needed to be.
Belinda was extremely professional, well organised, timely in response and most of all – patient throughout! There was never a moment where I felt out of touch with the progress of the deals being done or that I wasn’t being consulted prior to decisions being made.
I would happily engage Belinda Yates & Associates again for relevant future projects, Belinda and her team get the job done!”
Tom Sigelski | Culture Marketing Manager, Red Bull Australia Pty Limited
“Belinda Yates, is an amazing lady! From time to time some try to cut costs by not using Belinda’s wealth of experience and knowledge. Wrong! I’ve never approach a related ‘original song’ project without Belinda’s advice and services. Over the years, her input has greatly advantaged my budgets and clients. Belinda Yates is a true professional, a person whom I have the greatest of respect and will always continue the relationship!”
John ‘Reg’ Ruggiero, Freelance Agency Producer
“Having Belinda on the team gives you confidence that you are in safe hands. Belinda’s experience in the music industry is an asset to any production, and you can be sure that the music in your show is managed professionally.”
Rachel Clements, Producer, “Pmarra Country”
“Belinda Yates is a top rate professional in her field. She guided me through a mine field of music clearances on a TV show I produced in 2010 and gave me great advice and guidance. She is a winner and I am very grateful to her for her assistance.
If you want a personal testimonial or more information I would be happy for her potential clients to call me. That is how satisfied I was and am with her work!”
Robert Rigby, CEO, Ambition Entertainment
“Belinda has consistently provided us with prompt and professional services, helping our business to meet tight deadlines.”
When looking for a track to accompany a new community service announcement Belinda was offered a difficult brief – we needed the song to be uplifting, modern and sound as good as the Iggy Pop song we couldn’t afford – we had no budget being a not for profit organisation. Belinda responded with several brilliant tracks that were so good it was difficult to choose. Without Belinda to help us navigate our way through finding THE SONG, we would not have the soundtrack to our successful campaign, thank you for helping us bring our advertisement to LIFE.
