First Deal!

Post by MBantle » Sun Apr 07, 2019 10:55 am

Dear All,

I re-joined TAXI in November 2018 after a break (no deals during my previous 1 year membership) and just signed my first deal (5 piano instrumentals) with a publisher through TAXI. Thank you TAXI and Michael - this would have never happened without you and the invaluable advice I received on TAXI TV and the TAXI Forum!

It feels so great and, on a personal note, probably some of you can understand the weight coming off my shoulder being a husband and family father finally turning from "tragic hero sitting endless hours in his man cave" into "signed composer" :lol:

All the best to all of you! It is time for a celebration drink now :P
Cheers,
Matt

P.S. Maybe the following is helpful for other new members: In my correspondence with the publisher I highlighted right from the start that I am comparatively new to this part of the Music Industry and they were very friendly and helpful - also in answering a few questions I had regarding the contract.

Hi Paul!
Thanks and congratulations!!! I am so glad you signed that deal!
P.S. I guess for the moment I need to accept that my forte are (and probably will be) piano instrumentals and that I'll never become one of the cool kids :lol:
But let's continue the way we did: One step at the time...
Cheers,
Matt
