Owner and Founder
Matt Lilley created MCL Music Services in 2009 to provide Music Clearance, Licensing, and Supervision services to the Film, Television, and Advertising communities. Previously the Director of Music Clearance in the Feature Film division at Paramount Pictures from 1996 - 2008, Matt was responsible for much of the clearance negotiating and licensing in many of Paramount’s most successful films and soundtracks over that span of time.
In late 2008, Matt was named Vice President of Music Clearance and Licensing at Lionsgate Entertainment (in charge of the Film, Television, and Marketing divisions of the company) which he transitioned into maintaining as his first client under the umbrella of MCL Music Services.
Over the past several years MCL Music Services has expanded its services and now works in Music Supervision in the independent film and documentary world, Catalogue Administration, and Musicology services in conjunction with Denise Carver, Esq. of CarverMusik (CarverMusik).
An avid fan of jazz music, Matt is a lifelong saxophone player, performing with his jazz quartet in the greater Los Angeles area. Matt holds a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Phoenix (2003) and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Industry Studies from California State University, Northridge (1997).
Manager of Music Clearance and Licensing
Austin Haver-Hill graduated from California State University, Northridge with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Industry Studies in the Spring of 2017. He joined the MCL team after completing his internship with them the same year.
Austin mainly handles TV Licensing for shows such as Orange Is The New Black, Casual, Graves, White Famous, and more. When needed he also steps in to help with clearance on projects such as the recent Netflix show Mindhunter. Austin often floats between TV, film, and marketing to support in whatever ways are needed.
Austin spends much of his free time playing guitar, writing music, and reading books.
