Did you know that there are 40,000 songs uploaded to Spotify a day?!?
Right now, it’s more important than ever that musicians develop the discipline of practicing marketing as much as they do their instrument. Creative marketing and branding is how you stand out and build a fan base.
I want to tell you a story about myself and why I think I can help you.
In 2009, I was fed up with working my day job at a milk carton factory. I was making beats every day in my spare time and recording people in my bedroom in between shifts so I decided the time was NOW to make a change.
With the blessing of my wife, I decided to pursue music full time. Things didn’t start out that great. I was making 20k a year recording people and selling beats.
That was half my salary at the factory!
I took a huge risk in 2010 and decided to open a recording studio away from my house. I sunk all of our savings into building out a commercial space so that I could work with my artists 24/7. It had everything I wanted — wood floors, double doors and windows for soundproofing, five rooms for recording, and a small kitchen.
I operated that studio for 7 years. We ended up losing our first house over the business, and I’ll tell you what —
It wasn’t worth it!
Even though I had a dream space, I was now paying way more in rent and spending time commuting. Every year my costs went up for rent, insurance, and operations so I had to either make less money or increase my prices. After struggling for all those years and not making enough money, I decided to sell the space refocus my goals as a music producer.
The problem wasn’t the quality of my music – it was my mindset!
I decided to focus all my time and energy on music licensing and working with artists that wanted to license their music.
The first year I put my all into music licensing, I made over six figures!
I now have over 2000 placements on television and movie in countries all over the world and have helped 100’s of artists with their vision!
I’ve spent over a decade figuring out what works and what doesn’t work so you don’t have to.
I know what kind of music licenses and how to make it. Let’s get started by contacting me for a free consulting session.
