Hey there! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to get to know me. I’m Evan, and I’m here to share practical lessons from my journey to becoming a stock music musician. I’ve had songs included on NPR’s “All Thing Considered” and my clients range from independent content creators to massive companies, like Verizon. And my story has been in Forbes, Side Hustle Nation, and the Side Hustle School.
A little about me
I wrote my first song when I was in 3rd grade.
It was called “Gerbils Like to Fly.”
Obviously, it was a hard act to follow!
Then I went to Georgetown Law and became an attorney.
Why Stock Music?
But on my 31st birthday, I realized that I had built a hard drive full of half-finished songs and that my dreams of having my music heard were slipping past me.
I realized that the grind of my career didn’t let the best parts of me flourish.
So I set out to share my music.
What I’ve learned
Through hard work, trial and LOTS of error, I discovered how to successfully license my songs as stock music.
Now I earn hundreds of dollars a month through my music.
Plus I know that my music is being heard by hundreds or thousands of people.
Even more important, the discipline of writing music for an audience has sent my productivity through the roof. I’m writing – and finishing – more songs now then ever before. As a result, I’m writing some of the best songs of my life.
I’m here to teach you how I achieved all of this in one year, and to document my continued journey.
I would do anything for stock music, but I won’t do that….
It’s also important to know somethings that I will not / do not do:
- I don’t EVER license songs that I have a strong emotional attachment to
- I won’t sell you on products that I don’t use
- I won’t accept complaints – I did this and so can you
Thank you again for joining me!
I can’t wait to see your inner gerbil fly.
