“I have seen Him in the watch fires
Of a hundred circling camps”
–Julia Ward Howe
From Julia Ward Howe’s gorgeous lyric for the “Battle Hymn Of The Republic” we were inspired and realized that a watch fire is a way of lighting up the outer perimeters of one’s space to further strengthen the innermost core. We endeavor to fill people’s experience with light and we do it through music — and so our name, Watchfire Music, was born.
CEO & Creative Director
President & Dir., Digital Sheet Music
First, we are so glad that you are here. Welcome!
Second, here’s a quick history: We have been in business since 2006. For the first 5 years of Watchfire Music, we grew our roster of artists from several to over a hundred. We built a robust site that could handle all of their material and were fast on our way. During that time, the music business began to crash, and crash it did. Music was becoming free to generations of people. We knew that we had to stay nimble and be open to change.
Peter Link and Julia Wade are co-owners and partners in this entrepreneurial and creative adventure called Watchfire Music. We remain firmly and passionately planted in the music industry.
Julia’s experience and inspiration regarding our Digital Sheet Music offerings kept us alive during the worst crash the music business had ever experienced.
Peter’s business acumen and creativity have kept the company progressing at every twist and turn. Together, this team continued to move forward nimbly with the development of the internet and technology.
We are a virtual company with a creative staff of like-minded people and a roster of inspiring artists from around the world. Together, we bring to you our uniquely inspiring recordings, sheet music, podcast, music production and client services — so that you may bring these products and services to life for you and your followers!
We produce music at Link Recording Studios, our state-of-the-art work space that has enabled us to turn out professional products including many of the albums represented on WFM.
We create new musicals and license them to you so that you may bring exciting new works to your audience.
We produce Scattershot Symphony, a music podcast, as well as special events and live music concerts. These are all for the purpose of shining a light on truly uplifting music projects whose content is meant to wake up, provoke and inspire you to your own creative potential.
We also offer professional music and music production courses through Watchfire Music University.
Come study a range of subjects with master teacher, Peter Link.
With our passion for this business driving us, we expanded the range of our creative services to include Watchfire New Media, using our creative skills to build websites, launch digital media, and promote clients and their businesses online.
Watchfire New Media began as an answer to people like you who started asking us to help present your work in the same creative way that we present ours.
Together, we are all the product of a Renaissance time — a time when, as artists, we share our talents and skills to help you find your voice and to uniquely present your own creative work. In essence, we love building your imagination!
