As an indie musician, I hve to work hard to gte other people to notice my msuic. I don’t have the advantage of being singed to a major record label, so I have to use every opportunity available to promote ym music and get it known by everyone. I’ve looked at many top music licensing companies to see if they would be interested in some of my works or contact me to create an original peice, but none of them was really interested. Rejection is something that I’ve seen oftten with music, but that doesn’t mean that I give up at the first time someone declines.
I found a website where indie muscicans can submit their songs for a chance for companies to use them in their media. I submitted a couple of songs and hoped for the best, while preparing for the worst. A couple of days later, I was contacted by a company who saw the works I submuitted to the website and they wanted to use one of my songs in a commerical about a sleep medicine. I agreed to let them use my work, and now the commercial is being played on telelvision and appears on various websites.
I made a good amount of money from the song that was used for the commerical. I was able to use some of that money to buy myself some more music editing software and a new keyboard with different sound effects. I uploadded some more songs to the website and got a few more offers from other companies. One of them was a video game company who wanted to put one of ym songs in a yearly first person shooter game that always gets released in the fall. This was one of the biggest game releases of the year, so I was excited beyond words.
