Hi Carey, I'm new to Broadjam...I'm a dance teacher and absolutely love your music!!! Is there a way I can pay to use some of your songs in my Hip Hop class? My students would love it! :-)
Sure ! Which songs were you interested in using ? Thanks for the comment, truly appreciate it.
Thanks for your reply! I would love to purchase $ Stacks, Body Rock, and Bring It Back...I'm not sure how to purchase them though? :-)
Hello, I have made these songs available for purchase. You should be able to buy them now at .99 each I believe. Thank you for the kind words and the ratings.
OMG thankyou so much! Just purchased them and now I'm dancing around my room choreographing! haha, love it! =D
Hello. Have you actually had placements thru broadjam? If so when (date). Thanks
Yes I have. I have placements from 2010 until this year. The trick is to build on the relationships you get with the publisher when you do get a placement. Also, it took about a year after signing up before I saw any placements. Hope this helps.
Thanks for the link Carey. New to Broadjam. I see you're one of the heavy hitters on here. Tight work!
Thanks for the comment !!!! If you have any questions about tv/film licensing, please let me know. Here to help.
Carey, What tips or suggestions could you offer for helping create a sting ending on a track?
What's up man?
Best suggestion I can give, think if you have a track thats 4 bars and it goes "a, b, c, d" now on the last bar before the end of the track, you want it to go "a, b, c, d, a"
When you get to that last "a" end with a kick and/or a crash, or hit. If you listen to the end of "Life of the Party" in my songs list at about 1:07 you'll hear how it ends with a kick and a crash on the last bar.
What I have found, the tracks that end with a crash gets used more because it kinda sets the scene up for the next piece of music, etc.
I hopes this makes sense, I know I may not have explained it right, but if you have any more questions let me know, I'll be happy to help.
Carey, thanks for getting back to me with a quickness. That makes perfect sense. I like the "a,b,c,d,a" analogy it definitely spells it out in words when describing. That gives me better perspective. I'll be sure to check out your "life of the party" track. Much appreciated!
I like a lot of your tracks.
Would you have an interest in collaborating sometime?
I am more of a storyline/song concept/lyrical idea kind of person.
I have an idea that I wanted to run by you.

NICE PAGE, FROM TONABOY, FOR JAUREN RECORDS
congrats on your placements ..i have been trying and not hearing any feed back at all do you have any tips ?
2 tips I can give that helped me out.
1. No fades. This is probably THE most important thing. Tracks should have a definate stop ending. When they edit for shows, they want everything to end with a "sting" or "button ending"
2. Try to avoid using sound effects (swooshes, laser sounds, etc.) I used to do that a lot to try to "fill" in tracks. I have had a lot of tracks not used for these reasons.
Oh, one last one, avoid long intro's. Get in and get out. Uptempo/party tracks usually gives you a better chance at placement.
Hope this helps. Holla at me if you have any more questions.
man awesome ... cause i use sound effects alot also ..thanks alot for your response and much continued success to you ...couldnt find a twitter for you ...im @livewire06
Carey, Thanks for the connect!
I see you are back at the emails again :-) Just wanted to say it was a pleasure meeting you today in NY.
Any artist that I ran into, I told them you guys were the real deal. Hope a few of them came your way. Take care.
Carey, It was nice seeing you and thanks for the props. Best of luck and keep me posted on your progress....Roy
Wanted to see if you'll be attending the ASCAP meeting in New York on the 31st ? I plan on attending, wanted to know if you would be there.
Carey, I do plan on being there. Let's connect. It's a good event and looking forward to it. All the best, Roy
Cool, I will look out for you. They are having a music placement panel, I should run into you there if I don't see you before then.
See you then.
CHECK OUT OUR VIDEO TO "STAYIN ALIVE" (GO HARD)!!! LIVE A COMMENT LET ME KNOW WHAT U THINK!!!
First off, let me just say Broadjam has really helped me since I joined a year ago. It has really made a difference in my career. I thank you for this service.
I have a question I am not sure if you can help me with.
If I have a song that I intend to use strictly for TV/Film, is it necessary for me to have a full length song. On song placements I've had previously, they usually only play maybe a verse and a chorus. Would I hurt my chances if I made songs with simply a chorus, a verse and the chorus again with a running time of about 1 min 30 secs?
Any thoughts would be helpful.
Carey, Thanks for the note and being a member. You don't have to submit full length material to an opportunity. There are +'s & -'s for doing so, but it really doesn't matter unless there is a specific length request.....Best of luck, Roy
