Biggest placement of my career! (solo piano with Alicia Keys)

Post by robbiejhancock » Mon May 17, 2021 2:09 pm

Hey gang! I just found out about the of the biggest placements of my career. I am beside myself right now and can't even believe that this happened. Sooooooooo thankful! Thank you universe! Although this is not a placement through a TAXI forward, I made the connection with the library through attending the road rally. I also learned the skills I needed to get the music signed by attending the road rallies, watching Taxi TV and spending time here on the forums.

A cue sheet landed in my SOCAN account as it does and I checked it out and started seeing names like The Rolling Stones, Eddie Vedder, Lady Gaga, Sam smith, John Legend, Keith Urban and I was like what the??? Must be a mistake! ... then I kept looking and sure enough there was my name and my instrumental cues "Can't Lose" and then another instrumental piece "Imagine the possibilities" so I started to freak out! lol
I found out that these 2 piano pieces were used a part of the "One World: Together at Home" concert last year broadcast all over the world with some of the biggest names in the business hosted by Lady Gaga! I am sure some of you saw it. One piece is supporting ALICIA KEYS speaking and the other PRIYANO JONAS followed by a performance by John Legend and Sam Smith. If you want to check them out or watch some of the performances again they are here. This is what I have been working for. This is what dreams are made of. Never give up!

Thank you to the music library/publisher that placed this music for me. Thank you Michael for creating Taxi and to the Taxi team especially Tom Stillwagon for encouraging me early on to not give up! I am extremely grateful!

Amazing Robbie to have your piano behind Alicia Keys.

Love the super simple arrangement. There's a lesson for us all in that.

Big congrats. :D
