My First BMI Royalty Statement

Post by SteveBaruah » Fri Sep 14, 2018 6:43 am

First of all, a BIG thank you to Michael and his Taxi team. Not only have they showed me a career I didn't even knew existed, they showed me how to do it!

I've been busy over the last couple of years learning what cues are and how to make them. Today I received my first royalty payment for my cues.
It included the placements I knew about (Tunesat) on Catfish and The Challenge, but also some nice surprises with regular radio plays in the US and abroad. These can add up quickly!

This has really given me the hunger to go and make more!

Thanks!
