woohoo!! 2 placement day!

Post by JohnnyP » Wed Mar 24, 2021 3:25 pm

Just got an email from a library I met in Jan of 2017 that my song "New Place To Go" was placed in episode 7 of "Diary of a Future President"!! And then I checked Instagram and found I had a Y&R placement today!

Thanks again TAXI for the training, and all of the opportunities to meet the movers and shakers in the sync world!

Here's the song from Y&R "Breathe Again" https://soundcloud.com/jp-pearson-1/bre ... NiRblQgDiC

here's the song from "Diary of a Future President" https://soundcloud.com/jp-pearson-1/new ... CPyDfuogNy

"New Place To Go" was written in my days of switching from a country pop writer to more straight-ahead pop and indie folk styles. I listened to a bunch of TAXI listings and really tried to go for that indie folk style but as you can hear a lot of country is showing through!

I thought that song was just lost in a library somewhere for the last 4+ years. Man was I wrong!

Ha Peter! Yes, I do believe I’ll have a double now that you mention it!
Yes it’s been a good day. I’ve always heard that “you have to have a lot of music out there before the placements come”. I’m buying into that line of thought today!

“you have to have a lot of music out there before the placements come”

Geez.... now you tell me thanks!!!, I better crank more out then... :lol:

How about a topic header on the FORUM index just "JP forwards and placements"

Congratulation JP... as usual nice songs.

Ha Andre! Yeah I’m good at stating the obvious right? 😉 And thanks for the nice words🙂

Seriously it’s always been a struggle for me to sign songs to most any library. Usually several hundred $ goes into every vocal song- and that’s not factoring in my time..
I used to worry quite a bit that I was signing away my stuff to the “wrong” companies.
Now it’s vett as best I can and write more!!
