What a TV Placement is Really Like

music licensing
 

Hey Stock Star!

So some of my music has recently been used in Real Housewives of the Potomac.

I wanted to share a small clip we filmed in our living room to show you what it's like when your music is used in a show. 

Apologies for the quiet volume! But that's what it's really like! 

It's usually not all the glamorous! You're not going to be featured up front. Instead you're there as a supporting role for the vibe of the scene. That's why I always stress that you don't make your songs too busy or full of high pitched instruments.

This song was played in the background during a scene where they were playing truth or dare. And you can't even hear it on the recording- so you know it's not very prominent (and the AC is loud)!

Often when your song is played you're not even sure it's there, so you've got to go back and listen a few times.

But it's a pretty cool feeling!

I got these placements through working with an exclusive library, but I've also gotten several TV and Netflix placements through Pond 5.

On the downside, though, I likely won't start seeing royalty checks for this until February 2022! That's why the best time to start your music licensing side hustle is now
