The company composed the last three image campaigns for NBC's ''Today morning news/entertainment program: "Live for Today" (2005-2006), "It's a New Day" (2006-2007), and "Why I Love Today" (2008). The "Live for Today" theme was nominated for an Emmy. 615 Music also has a production music library.

The company, along with other composers of news music such as Gari Communications, have seen a surge in business since the third quarter of 2006. This is due to the fact that licensing companies had raised the prices of licensing. In 2007, 615 Music signed a deal with Belo Corporation making them the exclusive provider of news music for the station group.[1]

The company's music has also been licensed for use in movie trailers. Their track "Goth" was used in the domestic trailer for Live Free Or Die Hard.

615 Music also produced the new official theme song for the Atlanta Braves, "The Braves Play Here" by James Otto.[2]
