No thanks, close this window
the fact that you haven't licensed a single thing in 3 years really scares the hell out me. Its almost unbelievable, you have an entire library of soundtrack music unto yourself. Maybe you should just start your own publishing library and land your own deals. Theres a music supervisors black book I saw in a contest on Music x-ray, so I know it exists, maybe you should try to get your hands on one and just skip this site and stat soliciting straight to independent film studios. Do you have any money to play with? all you really need to call yourself a business is a website. So strart your own music library, you could build a business site for about 3k and then place adds on the op side on music x-ray which charges a submission fee of $10 by the pop provider, start raking in the money to pay for expenses while building up your library and find an ex-music supervisor with connections who will work for you on commission, 15% for every license they land and just sit back and make music. I'd do it if I had your catalogue and 3k to spend. If you ever do try it, look me up I have tons of great stuff too you can put in your library, you could advertise here on the op side and rake in all the best talent and make licensing money off EVERYONES music not just your own.
Dare the Devil is a perfect soundtrack piece, if you can't license it then I don't stand a chance, and I would go as far as to say that if a library doesn't want to at least catalogue it then this whole site is fake and we should all just get off it and go elsewhere. apply it to 10 libraries and if non want it then I'd just quite this site cause it doesn't get any better than that song, perfect drama.
Thank you for the thoughtful feedback. You expressed my feelings precisely and eloquently.
I sold 2 songs on Bandcamp. I made a buck fifty. That is a buck fifty more than my earnings on Broadjam.
I hear you, Mark. I think I have 4 cents on another site. I have to assume I'm just doing this for the glory, and not the cash :) Spend that $1.50 wisely...haha! Susan
I have not written much since my son was born last summer. I feel disconnected from him if I put on headphones. I am always listening to him. He will get older and I will start writing again though.
Congratulations! Yes, children come first...they are blessings that will never compare to music. We are living in a world now where everyone can sing, write, and play an instrument...it's difficult to find a way to stand out in the saturated market.
