Songs signed to Film / TV Ad Publishers
March 30, 2017
Part of what I do is making music for the Film / TV / Advertising world (...one can't live on fresh air). I've been lucky enough to hook up with some some great collaborators and one I've been on a roll with lately is Axel Bauer, a cool producer from Austria with whom I did the following tracks that were all signed by top libraries / publishers in Jan and February. How it works normally is Axel will send some song and melody ideas (sometimes I send him some of my own), then I write the lyrics and do the vocals. Its a productive partnership.
We've never met...I guess some people find that quite fascinating but it's quite a conventional workflow in today's music world. We do everything by email.
All going well we will get our rewards down the line. Here's the music. It's very commercial but it's enjoyable to make and it's nice to get into a 'role' as such in each song, and explore different themes and emotions in the lyrics. It's interesting to mine your experiences and find old emotions if necessary. I also like variety in my projects and this keeps things interesting...and will hopefully pay some bills down the road as the tracks get placed. I also enjoy singing a lot but I just don't love performing.
It's fun. Music is fun. It's less glamorous than people think but definitely fun.
Here's the tracks we signed in January and February:
