Khaliq Glover Interviews Aaron Davison

Khaliq is a renowned producer that has worked with artists
such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Prince (to name a few).
During our interview Khaliq interviews me about how I got started licensing my own music and ultimately started helping other songwriters learn about the business. Learn why I'm so excited about music licensing and why I think it's something every songwriter should know about in this interview!


 How To Build Your Musical Pipeline

To consistently license and make money from your music you need to be continually building your "musical pipeline". I frequently get checks from places I almost forget I ever even contacted in the first place.

If your music is good, and you plant enough seeds, they will start to come to fruition. The music licensing business is always changing and evolving based on what projects are being pitched to.

Sometimes music will sit in a catalog for an extended period of time before there is a relevant opportunity. This could be a few months or even a year or more, depending on the style of music and how in demand it is.

That's why it's a good idea to pursue multiple leads at the same time.  The more potential places you have pitching your music, the better.

I don't think you should go completely overboard and randomly place your music with every music publisher and library under the sun.  You do need to be somewhat selective and do due diligence when it comes to researching who you have representing your material.  

You need to work with places that make sense and pitch to places your music would be a good match for.  

But if you're working with just one or two places and you find they're not helping you make consistent income with your music, it's probably time to expand your team.
