New link added... Weird, this trailer has been up close to a year and I just found out about it. Crazy business end is always far behind the placements.

Congratulations. Did they license directly from you or through your agent?

Thanks Wy! I think it's considered in the Romance genre. Maybe Psycho Bizarre Romance.

Thanks Ricki! Especially since it's an original beat, not a loop. On the quick bongo/congo parts I used converted piano trills.

Nice work, John:

Did you ever get Getty Images straightened out? I seem to recall they were being rather stingy with paying Composers and Artists... as well as Songwriters.

Enjoyed,

Thanks Dave!

Actually Getty Images have a better deal than the majority of the other libraries. They got a bad rap when they lowered the percentage of licensing fees for the writer. However, the majority of music libraries have never given upfront licensing to the writers - zilch.

Getty Images, like most libraries, still give 100% PRO royalties. So yeah, Getty’s a better deal than most. However, these days I don’t sign any tracks over to anything less than 50% upfront licensing and 100% Writer PRO royalties.

Hey John,

A friend of mine used my song, Catching Fireflies, for a book trailer. I actually wrote two different new songs for the book but they wound-up using Fireflies. It sounds amazing only coz Mike Zaneski worked his production magic on it. The book is called All Bears Need Love & deals with interracial adoption. I was honored that they selected my song. http://youtu.be/L3HLqbV6KQk

That was a cool trailer Wendy. You and Mike should be proud of it. It's great hearing one's music being used.

Thank you Lynn! I feel very fortunate to be living in an era where one can have their music heard anywhere in the World without even leaving the comfort of one's home.

Always worth the trip Lynn. Sandra has her church girl breakfast at Paneras tomorrow morning. Of course that means I'll be there too.
