Synchronization License Explained

When a producer or music supervisor wants to use a song in a television show, permission must be secured from the song's publisher.  The songwriter of the song is by default the song's publisher unless the songwriter signs away his publishing rights to a third party.

Three Steps To Licensing Your Music

Posted by Aaron Davison on Thursday, June 14, 2012, In : June 2012 

 
There are essentially three steps required in order to successfully license your music.  Everything you need to learn about and act upon in order to license your music is in some way related to these three steps.
 
The three steps are:
 
1) Write and produce music that works for licensing  
 
2) Research who needs the kind of music you make

Keep Going!

Posted by Aaron Davison on Sunday, June 3, 2012, In : June 2012 

A mantra of mine for the last couple years, has been a simple, two word phrase, that I find myself going back to again and again.  The words are simply "Keep Going".  These two words are so simple, yet contain profound power.  When I find myself struggling or feeling frustrated, I remind myself to simply "Keep Going".  When I'm celebrating victory or success I also remind myself to "keep going" in order to continue moving forward.
