Lots of forwards in 2019 led to 1rst Deal in a long time

Post by steveprobst » Sat Mar 28, 2020 8:19 am

I really stepped it up in 2019, and after 22 forwards in different genres, I will be signing two tracks to a library via a Taxi forward! Forwarded 12/19, library contacted 3/20. It was this one:



Of course, once you've got that door open, they ask for more. This 2nd track was initially returned because, thinking myself helpful, I added an urban element to it, but the Taxi screener rightly said the company wanted specifically "Middle-Eastern" influenced. But as it happens, getting foot in said door, publisher said to write more if I want! So there you have it.



NOW, I must do my first crack at making stems and alternate mixes which the library has asked for! :geek:

Congrats!

Thanks Darren! Yes, exactly a "re-action" finally. I know it can take some time and everyone's timeline is different. #persistance
