YVETTE METOYER Yvette Metoyer is an LA native and music supervisor of film and television projects. Her first foray into the field was as a music assistant on the AMC hit series, “Breaking Bad”, starring Bryan Cranston. Since then, she has worked with an array of eclectic styles of music from various time periods, including on the series, “The Walking Dead”, “Halt and Catch Fire”, and “Better Call Saul” to name a few. She is currently working as the music supervisor on the acclaimed Amazon anti-superhero series, “The Boys” – created and executive produced by Eric Kripke, the Fox series "The Cleaning Lady", the "The Boys" spinoff series "Varsity", Tyler Perry's series "Sistas" and "Bruh", and the Sony Pictures Television series "Panhandle". Additionally, she supervised the Netflix feature film "Spiderhead" and is supervising the feature documentary "Won't be Silent".
In addition to working in the film & TV music industry Yvette spends time as an education committee member with the Guild of Music Supervisors. She is also a member of the non-profit Free the Work, an organization that focuses on promoting the employment of talented professionals from underrepresented groups within various fields of the entertainment industry (including directorial, editorial, composers, etc.) by creating a curated network of proficient artists looking to showcase their skills, and sharing this information with studio executives, production companies, music supervisors, agents, etc., with the goal of introducing new and undiscovered talent, for consideration on projects and work opportunities.
Yvette is experienced in not only the creative aspect of music supervision, but she generally handles all clearances on her projects, and she is also involved in the preparation for on-camera performances and (pre)recording sessions. She is also well-versed in the ever-changing union policies of both SAG/AFTRA and AFM as they relate to union re-use fees, as this is becoming a mainstay in licensing. Yvette values making close relationships with record labels, music publishers and licensing companies so that she is in a solid position to negotiate favorable license deals for her productions.
