My friend, XXXXX XXXXXna, is a great song writer and performer. He has several albums on iTunes, many performance videos on youtube, and more than 20 years in the business. His new songs as well as some of his older work would be perfect for TV shows or maybe even movie soundtracks. He has a soulful, singer songwriter sound and strong lyrics that still have good hooks. We are located in Louisville, KY. . . so very far from LA and NY as far as running into producers and APs, and we don't have contacts in Nashville though we have some family down there. Is there a preferred way to get one's music in front of the people that make the decisions for TV and films. We have been in the local performance business for years, but have no idea how to break in to market. If you would like to hear the music before deciding to take on this question, XXXXX XXXXXna has a few songs posted on reverb nation and all his albums are available on iTunes.
Hi, thanks for the info. I would like to ask another question. I will put a tip on the fee if you have any information about this. Do you have any opinion on Taxi.com. Between a little web research and watching many videos on youtube, it seems to be the site most referenced. They say they work to put independent artists and movie and industry people together. The fees are pretty steep, so I am trying to vet if it is worth it or not. It is like $300 for the year and then like $5ish a song. It would probably take me $500 to get everything up and have a year of service. Do you have any thoughts about this service?
