Chapter 1

License Your Music

 

License Your Music will help music producers, composers or artists to know the right licensing companies to work with to license their musical works.

 

The book is also useful for film producers or music directors or artist managers looking for songs or instrumentals to use.

 

We make it easier to locate these music licensing companies by clicking on the names.

‘License Your Music’ puts together the heavyweight music licensing companies that will assist you in getting your work out there or placing your musical work on Film or TV shows.

 

Ensure the quality of your sound is excellent and avoid distortion. Make sure your lyrics are universal to cover different plots.

 

As a composer or artist; take your time to listen to the soundtracks of great films so you can be familiar with what the sound should be like.

 

You will come across an offer like a music director looking for a song for a particular scene so there might be times you will need to change your lyrics or sound to suit the plot.

 

Best for an artist or composer is to own a recording studio you can use anytime because a finished song might have a limited opportunity and you might need to create a new musical work to meet up with this offer before the deadline for submission.

In fact, the best way is to first know what the music director is looking for and you now create your musical work to meet the goal.

 

Music licensing companies like Taxi, Music Gateway, Broadjam, Bandit A&R, Music Xray and so on can be helpful for starters.

 

A DJ might license your song to remix it for sale, a music director might license it to use it as a soundtrack for a movie and an artist might license it to do the cover.

 

There are so many ways to derive income from music licensing. You make good money at a glance, unlike digital streaming.

 

 

Music licensing is a new source of income whereby an artist can license the use of his or her copyrighted music for a fee.

 

Fee depends on whether the purchaser of the music license will use the musical work for a non-commercial purpose or commercial purpose.

 

Fee for using a song for a commercial purpose is higher than a non-commercial purpose.

A purchaser of your music license has limited rights to use your musical work for commercial or non-commercial purpose depending on the license.

 

Music licensing is a serious business that is more profitable than streaming if an artist is fortunate enough to find a reliable Music Licensing Company or Publisher.

 

With licensing your music; you will come across granting your right in two categories as in exclusive and non-exclusive.

 

Granting an exclusive right to a publisher means you cannot give the musical work to another publisher i.e. that publisher is the only one in charge of pitching the song.

Granting a non-exclusive right means you are still free to give the same musical work to another publisher.

 

But what you will get in monetary return in the granting of a non-exclusive right is very less compared to when you grant an exclusive right to a reputable publisher.

Working with a publisher or a music licensing company can be trickery so you need to research well. Avoid a long term contract if you are not sure of the publisher or licensing company.

 

Based on personal experience; I have few publishers that pay whereas there are many that I did not hear from them since submitting and granting the right. So be very careful about the publisher you want to grant the right.

 

 

There are a lot of factors to consider as it seems profitable to make money via music licensing. You need to have a PayPal account in case your publisher is not in the same territory with you.

 

Quality of your sound must be excellent because the publisher might place your song in a Film or TV Show; therefore, there must not be an issue with production.

Ensure you tag your songs and you can use the service of tag providers like TagTeam Analysis.

 

Tagging your music for music licensing is not the same as the Meta Tagging. Here you need to state the title, description, tempo, genre, subgenre, moods, styles, cue type, featured instruments, vocals (male or female) and sounds like.

 

Be original in creating your musical works and avoid the use of samples.

 

Find out if the music publishers or licensing companies take song already registered with a PRO because few of them do not take songs registered with a PRO (Performing Rights Organization) like ASCAP, BMI and so on.

 

Ensure your song relates to the offer to reduce the rate of rejection. Read the requirement and know what the music director needs.

 

Focus on the offers similar to your musical works.

 

Do not pitch garbage and be sure you have something great to offer. Low quality or poorly recorded song will not work for the music licensing even if the publisher approved.

 

Music licensing companies like Songtradr, Amurco and Audiosparx offer digital distribution with music licensing.

 

Explore the music licensing companies to know the one that works for you.

 

An artist must ensure to copyright his or her musical works before engaging in music licensing.

 

In a layman’s view, let us assumed a buyer purchased your music license for a commercial purpose. The buyer can release your song for a commercial purpose and sell it online.

 

In this kind of situation, you will still get paid because there are other hidden royalties that your PRO will pay you as the songwriter, so you are not losing everything by granting someone to use or sell your song via music licensing. The buyer of your music license might even promote the song and make you more popular than you think.

 

Let us cite Dolly Parton’s song entitled ‘I Will Always Love You’ as Late Whitney Houston made the song more popular. It is just like a songwriter pitching songs out.

 

Income from music licensing can supersede the royalty you are getting from the digital streaming if you are lucky.

 

Avoid working with a publisher with no record of success and do not be in a hurry to sign an exclusive contract with a new publisher or music licensing company.

 

Take note you have a full song and you have the instrumental. Separate the instrumental from the full song when granting right because an instrumental works for Film or TV shows while a full song works for artists seeking songs to record.

As many artists are springing up nowadays and bombarding streaming platforms with new songs daily; music licensing platforms remain the best means for artists to generate extra income.

 

– Olamide Ayodeji Kolade

Additional Requirement for Music Licensing:

 

Register your songs with a PRO.

You can only join one PRO so check the links below and go for one.

 

Register as a songwriter or register for both songwriter and publisher.

 

After the registration, you will be able to register your songs online with the PRO, you will be assigned CAE/IPI number and your songs will have a work number and ISWC number.

 

Join BMI

 

Join ASCAP

 

You must have an IPI Number assigned to you by your PRO.

 

Obtain an ISWC Number for your songs. ISWC (International Standard Musical Work Code) is a particular, permanent and universally accepted ISO reference number for the identification of musical works. Note that ISRC is not the same as ISWC. You can get an ISWC via ISWC International Agency

 

http://www.iswc.org/

 

ISWCs are generally assigned to musical compositions by music publishers and PRO societies.

 

ASCAP is the official ISWC issuance agency, but even if you are not a member of ASCAP you can get an ISWC.

 

You need to provide the details of the musical work such as the Song Title, Composers, Authors, and Arrangers with their role and their CAE/IPI number (assigned by ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC to songwriters and music publishers in the U.S.) to get the ISWC.

 

BMI has a system also and you only need to check online to find out if BMI has registered your songs fully.

Below are tools to find your ISWC online. The tools are also good for identifying the copyright owners of musical works.

Coming from New England, Erin Gibney puts a new and refreshing spin on country music.

 

She has been performing since she was 11 years old and came to Nashville in September 2016 to record the beginning 2 songs in her first album.

 

After falling in love with the city, she decided to move to Nashville this year to be closer to the studio and producer helping to make her music possible.

 

Along with singing live around Nashville, Gibney worked hard on her debut album, BOLD, which was released on April 12th, 2018.

 

Gibney has had the incredible honour of working alongside well-known and respected Nashville musicians under the guidance of her producer, Buddy Hyatt, for this album.

 

These Grammy and CMA winning musicians include Brent Mason, Bobby Terry, Zach Allen, Wayne Killius, Duncan Mullins, Scott Sanders, Hale White, and Buddy Hyatt himself.

 

Gibney now is excited to introduce her newest single, July.

Tell us what your fans are saying about your music.

My fans have called my latest music, “beautiful and poetic.” Words like these are such incredible compliments to receive and I am so thankful for everyone’s positive feedback.

.

.

.

Tell us the factors you consider in choosing a song as your favourite.

Lyrics are a huge factor when choosing a song as my favourite. I love hearing an artist’s story put to music.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of producers you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

I currently love working with my producer, Buddy Hyatt, in Nashville. I would love to also work with people like Jay Joyce, Maren Morris, and Chris Stapleton.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the names of the songwriters you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

I would love to work and write with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your favourite TV show and state your reason.

‘Friends’ is by far my favourite television show because it always keeps me in a good mood and laughing.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your best mood to create a song.

I think I am most creative when I’m confused or conflicted. I always find the answers to my problems when I’m forming them into a song.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your interpretation of fame or success.

I think fame and success are very different things. Fame is when people know your name, but success is when you leave a lasting, positive impact on those people.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of artists you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

I would love to collaborate with Bruce Springsteen, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Gavin DeGraw, Keith Urban, and Carrie Underwood.

.

.

.

Tell us about your experience performing on stage for the first time or recording in the studio for the first time.

The first time I ever recorded in a recording studio was a life-changing moment for me. I was 17 and recording my first ever single. I remember hearing my music come alive over my headphones and I was overcome with joy and awe. The experience has motivated me to keep creating music for people to enjoy.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you approach songwriting.

I approach songwriting like I would if I was writing a story about my life. I put my experiences onto paper and organize them to fit a melody.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on blending genres or experimenting with sound.

I love the idea of blending genres and experimenting with sound. Artists should feel free to create music even if it doesn’t fit their current genre.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you deal with rejection.

I see rejection as an opportunity to grow. Taking people’s constructive criticism is the only way to grow as a writer and person.

.

.

.

Elaborate on what compels you to sing.

I sing because music is a way to unite people. I think to be a part of something that influential is really beautiful.

.

.

.

Tell us the comparison between digital recording and analog recording.

Digital recordings are great because they can be archived forever on a computer or device. Analog is a great option because you’re receiving your music in its physical form.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you record your vocals.

I record my vocals in the studio.

.

.

.

Tell us the software you used mostly for recording.

I use ProTools when recording for the most part.

.

.

.

Discuss the selling of CDs and selling of digital files through digital stores.

The selling of CDs and digital files both have their benefits. Selling CDs gives the artist a reasonable profit while selling digital files reaches a larger audience.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the song.

‘July’ is a song about finding love in the heat of the summer. It is soft, sweet, and melodic as the music takes the listener through a story of falling in love.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

My name is Erin Gibney, my given name, and my song, “July,” is my new summer single.

Country Singer/ Songwriter, Erin Gibney Announces New Summer Single, June 28th, 2019Nashville, Tennessee

 

Following the release of her March single, King of Hearts, Erin Gibney puts out a refreshing song about young love (out 6/28/19).

 

The lyrics run through a story of falling in love in the heat of summer, a theme much different from Gibney’s past music.

 

While the singer usually writes of heartbreak, lyrics in her new single, July, are uniquely lighter. She sings, “I thought ‘this is forever, you and me together…’” and “he sleeps so purely in the light of a summer morning.”

 

Erin Gibney is a country singer/songwriter from New England who moved to Nashville in 2017. Upon her move, Gibney attended Belmont University as a Music Business major and worked on her debut EP, Bold.

 

She has auditioned for television shows such as NBC The Voice, American Idol, and America’s Got Talent.

Gibney’s love for performing drove her to sing in places like Douglas Corner and Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant.

‘July’ is a song about finding a selfless and unconditional love. She takes the listener through a story of her infatuation with a boy, using words like, “God, I’m so in love.”

Tell us your definition of being a talented artist.

Talent – persistence, dedication, the love of music and the belief in your own ability.

.

.

.

 

Describe how you get involved in music.

I have been playing guitar and writing music since I was 10 years old and have never fallen out of love with its creation.

My first recording was a birthday present. One day in a recording studio and the excitement of recording has never left me!

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you are a starter or an established artist at the moment.

I am not a starter but a long term developing musician and I never stop learning!

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the themes of most of your songs.

The themes of my songs are mostly about relationships, reactions, to being part of or the consequences of them but when a subject sparks my imagination then I go with it.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on old music and new music in terms of preference.

Inspiring music is what excites me and taking ideas from all forms.

.

.

.

State your greatest performance.

My greatest performance was in a church hall in my home town and one of my very first gigs of my first album. I had the whole audience in the palm of my hand and at the end everyone just got up and sang along with the title track of the album and it was incredible!

.

.

.

 

Tell us the greatest mistake to avoid while recording a song.

The biggest mistake when recording is to know when to stop! Less is usually more like any artist; one of the greatest talents is to know when to put down your brush etc. and say that’s ENOUGH!

.

.

.

 

Tell us your definition of a hit song.

Hit song – short and sweet with recognisable empathy and something universal to lock onto instantly.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you know about your fans.

My fans are diverse fickle but loyal if you recognise their worth. I love the fact I have any at all and I appreciate every single one of them and I only wish I could thank everyone personally

.

.

.

 

Describe your mood during recording or performance.

When recording I have my creative head on but I am always open to instant ideas and to try and bring out the very best in myself and very conscious of the help I can get from people around me.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your songwriting.

Songwriting for me is to create and destroy, build and breakdown, play over and over and change what doesn’t work to that which does tweak, tailor, mould, clarify and perfect then say that is ENOUGH.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your recording process.

Recording is a world of my own complete control and an instinct as to what works…

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you experiment with different sounds.

I tend not to be out of control with sounds when recording but I am continually seeking the sound I have perfected in my head and never quite get; one day I will achieve nirvana but until then I will keep playing around with sound until I say ENOUGH.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name.

My name is Gordon Thomson and I would have loved to have created a better name for myself but it’s who I am.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on multi-genre music.

To me, multi-genre music is simply taking influences from other forms of music and adapting them to suit one. And to me, they have no bounds just as music has no bounds. Interpret it as you wish with what you wish with who you wish and in any combination. You have to wear blinkers not to be influenced as a musician by other forms and I prefer not to even pigeon hole my music but it always annoys me when asked what type of music is yours? Who do you sound like? Etc.

 

Listen and make your own mind up – like a painting; read into its landscape what you want and if you identify with it great, if you don’t, move on and listen to something else!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to develop a lyric to a full song.

My ideas come often out of the blue with just hearing a line of a song or a spoken word or even a mood brought on by a conversation or a thought.

 

My songs go through stages of rough drafts played over and worked on; especially the lyrics.

 

Most of my songs are dictated by the lyrics…and the simplest way to get over the message without too much effort.

.

.

.

Tell us how you come up with a melody.

The melody fits the feeling I get when I read my lyrics on the page or simply sometimes doodling with an acoustic guitar.

 

In my opinion a good song should be a journey as long as it says something to the listener that they can identify with and easily understand, but sometimes it can simply be a soundscape you can listen to as you look at a painting and take it in, absorb it and enjoy the way it makes you feel.

.

.

.

Tell us how you impact your listeners with your songs.

The impact of my song generally is on an emotional level as the song’s lyrics often take you on a journey sometimes with a story that has meaning sometimes profound but often just good narrative…

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you relate with producers and music directors.

I direct and produce my own music and I am happy to do so but I often collaborate with people I respect when recording my music as they often influence the way in which some songs will go…

.

.

.

Tell us what you will change in your music.

I change all the time. I develop, create and am moved by my desire to get better and be satisfied.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what is special about this release.

This is my latest album and it is my best work simply because it has been the most fulfilling and satisfying.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your best means of expression.

My music is my creative outlet and that’s what I simply want to carry on doing. I want to put aside the dogma of disappointment, the agony of inadequacy and the frustration of what the creative endeavour unfolds.

State your history.

We came together at university and began writing songs during breaks between lectures. The more we wrote the more they enjoyed it and wanted to take it further.

 

We finally decided to record one of our songs and show it to some people and test it on them to see how it would do. People really responded well so we knew we had to take it up a level.

 

We began writing more and recording more songs and finally launched as Crystal Tides mid-2018.

.

We go back to the classic indie we grew up on in school – Always trying to capture that feel-good element. Combining catchy pop melodies with indie guitar licks to create our sound.

Indie – Rock.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the story behind your song.

‘Thunder’ was written about all the people who are telling other people’s stories as if they were their own. It’s usually to impress other people; they steal your thunder and take credit for something that hasn’t even happened to them!

 

Subliminally, the song focuses on people who are trying to live in someone else’s shoes, pretending to be someone they aren’t in order to stand out or fit in.

.

.

.

 

Brief us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

Something that’s going on in one of our lives or maybe if something is annoying one of us perhaps the way certain people can be. It really is whatever happens to us that causes a trigger in emotion.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

We would take a lot of time off our jobs to write/record new music, but mainly money going into promotion.

.

London newcomer Emma Kelly shares the second powerhouse, vocal filled single ‘WAVES.’

 

Following on from her debut track ‘Running Wild’ that managed to “separate herself from the up and coming artists with the distinction in her sound” (A&R Factory), Emma is coming back with her second single, filled with continued powerhouse vocals and catchy hooks.

 

Emma makes bold, powerful pop music that balances precariously on the verge of euphoria, sorrow, and empowerment. With a distinct sound, reminiscent of an early Florence Welch, the 21-year-old artist pens intricate lyrics far beyond her years.

 

Filled with metaphorical lyrics, ‘WAVES’ tells of the fight of love and a loath of loneliness. The lyrical concept underlies a melancholy tone, which compliments the uplifting feeling from the musicality of the melody and instrumentation. With the first verse including the words of the hook, it’s hard for the song not to stick in your mind.

 

Emma explains about the record: “‘WAVES’ is about a battle that a person can endure when in need of being alone but at the same time wanting to be surrounded by others.”

 

Emma Kelly, born and raised in a small town in Surrey, grew up surrounded by the sounds of Queen, her father’s favourite band.

 

Her mother’s musical theatre genes led to her to attend Italia Conti, a musical theatre vocational school, based in London, from the age of 11.

 

At 16, she decided that all she wanted to do was sing, so she left the school to pursue music full time, initially learning her trade at the Academy of Contemporary Music, Guildford.

 

Now at 21, she has spent the last couple of years gigging around London whilst writing and recording a sound that combines her detailed lyrics and powerhouse vocals.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on creativity and originality.

I think these days it’s so hard to be deemed original, you’re always going to get somebody going “oh you sound like this person” and everyone is always taking inspiration from somebody that has already done something but I think that is a good thing in regards to growth as an artist/songwriter.

 

For me I thrive off creativity, there’s always something new that can be tried in regards to the songwriting process whether this being going to a new environment or collaborating with somebody new.

 

My sole purpose is writing a song I love so if that means putting myself somewhere new I am always ready to experiment.

.

.

.

Tell us the beginning of your passion for music.

I know it sounds cliché but I really think I was born with a passion for music, there are pictures of me as a toddler in my different coloured tutu’s holding invisible microphones or slamming my hands on pianos.

 

However my first memory of really knowing what I wanted to do was when I was around 7, I got a solo in the stage production ‘Oliver’ and I remember when it came to performing; having everyone’s eyes on me singing and just feeling so euphoric at that moment.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you make sure the quality of your sound is high.

I’ve always been a perfectionist when it comes to the things I love and when it comes to my songs I make sure that when it’s near finished I listen on good speakers, bad speakers, through headphones and then always make sure people I trust listen to the songs because realistically you never know what you could have missed and when you’re putting something into the world you want it to be at 110%.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you get ideas to develop your song.

Lyrics wise I always base them on stories that have happened, whether about myself or people I know. I do this because I feel I can grasp a personal connection that also spreads to the listener.

 

With instrumentation, I always find it good to experiment looking around my surroundings and seeing if there is anything that could make a sound of interest for the song.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your music background.

I started off in musical theatre from a young age and loving it so much that I ended up training full time at a secondary school in London, however, by 16 I had fallen in love with songwriting and just wanted to sing and so went to study contemporary songwriting from 16 to 19. Since then I’ve dedicated my life to writing and recording.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your music process.

Every process for me is different when I first started songwriting; I would simply record voice memos of lyrics and a melody then that evolved to working with my guitarist and he would find chords. Now I like to try new techniques all the time whether this is working with other people or reading a book and highlighting words that stand out to me.

.

State five hit songs and name the artists.

Discuss how you think your music is impacting your fans.

I think my music allows you to create your own story, a person listening can connect in their own way and that is what I love most. People can feel a sense of relation to both me and my music.

.

.

.

 

State what inspires you to sing.

I think it’s just the only thing I truly love and am really good at. I love just sitting and listening to songs and working out harmonies, it is proper geeky but I love it.

.

.

.

Discuss this song.

It’s about the fight of the love for being alone whilst fighting the fear of loneliness.

 

You want to enjoy the moments of life by yourself but when you get to a hard part you want somebody to be able to catch you.

 

It’s sort of saying you want to be present with somebody, to grow, but to be able to disappear without necessary explanation.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you develop your melody.

For the melody, I and the producer just sat by the keys playing around with different notes and singing melodies until we were like oh wow that is a hook. It started with the hook melody and the whole melody just evolved from there.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you master your songs after production.

I am always present at the studio when the tracks are getting mastered, we go through everything to get to a quality we are happy with and then listen to other similar artists to make sure my track is sounding of the same quality before finalizing everything.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you get your songs to digital stores.

My songs get distributed to all stores via AWAL, who honestly are phenomenal and give constant advice and help about what I can be doing.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how to generate income through music.

The music industry is definitely hard when you are first starting but you just have to have faith in the people listening.

 

Money can come from different aspects whether being getting lots of streams, people purchasing your song and then live shows which you can then start to develop merch for that people could buy.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your piece of advice to a new artist.

Believe in yourself, it’s hard and not everyone is going to like you, but don’t give up.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite radio station.

Radio 1.

Go into details about this song.

I always refrain from giving too much detail but I did give some bits away earlier up. What I will say is listen to the song, shut your eyes and just take from the song your own vision, this song makes me feel a whole load of emotions at the same time but as a listener, you might feel something completely different.

State your history.

My name is GR3YWXLF, a supervillain and humble meme curator from West London. Originally Jamaican born, I’ve been dabbling with cartoons, poetry, comics and music for most of my life.

 

I initially started out producing little bits and pieces here and there – old Kanye styled sampling (nothing too groundbreaking)…transitioning to writing raps and perfecting flows.

.

.

.

 

Describe yourself as an artist.

Enigmatic wordsmith…

.

.

Tell us the genre of your music.

I’d say my genre of music is an amalgamation of genres – specifically lo-fi, hip hop and R&B. With some alternative elements sprinkled in for good measure. I’m a big fan of experimenting with sounds so I find myself floating between multiple lines and would say I’m somewhat niche with it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the story behind your song.

“MAD.” was inspired by an argument I had with someone who was really dialed up in his feelings – Real salty like aggression. Instead of allowing myself to be caught up by how tedious the exchange was, I took that and used it as a springboard to flex some ego and stunt a little bit for this vibe. I also wanted to create something catchy, so here we are.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the problems you are facing as an artist.

Right now, my only problem is adequate exposure as an independent. While it’s somewhat “easier” to do it alone nowadays, the dynamics of everything has changed a great deal with social media, etc. There is always something new to learn, something more I need to do. It’s forever a learning curve.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the recording and production of the song.

The beat was created by a dope producer from Rotterdam by the name of AJSOUNDS. Stylistically it sounded different, which immediately caught my attention and with a little Whisky on deck I knew I had to cook up something slick.

.

.

.

List the names of blogs, radio or television stations that have supported you so far.

Blogs wise, so far I’ve had support from, Buzz Music, DOPECAUSEWESAID, A&R Factory, Xune Mag, Xttrawave, UndergroundHipHop Blog, ItsHipHop, IndieHipHop.

.

.

.

 

Brief us what inspires you to make music.

I just like to create stuff. For the most part, inspiration can be fuelled by a variety of things at any given time. Sometimes I hear a beat and immediately get an idea I want to write, or I’m watching Rick and Morty and I catch an abstract topic to paint.

.

.

.

 

Tell the piece of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Just have fun with it! Don’t be too consumed by the numbers and own your vibe. It’s easier said than done I know, especially in an age where it seems you don’t have to necessarily be talented to get far (no shade but we all know it’s true). However, I feel people ultimately connect with realness, eventually. So just be real…

.

.

.

 

Name your favourite artists for collaboration.

There are so many fire artists out there I could be listing and wishing for days, I’d love to collaborate with EarthGang. Saba would be dope. Also Frank Ocean or Kali Uchis, I feel like it would be some real mellow ambiance.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

I’d be really boring at first, buy some new comics, a wings franchise, and probably do some investments. Then I’d spend some money on a private island so I could build the ultimate base of operations, like the ‘Batcave’ and stuff but for ‘Supervillainy’ inventing random technology.

.

.

.

Discuss music promotion and how you are boosting your fan base.

Right now I’m just trying to stay consistent and release as much as I can, and trying to be more active on social media. I haven’t got a team or anything like that so everything I do is firmly grounded in me focusing my energy. Promotion is a tricky thing but talking to and being featured by outlets do help to bridge the gap between me and potential listeners.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you manage other activities with your music career.

I’m still trying to figure out the right balance with this. There are weeks where all I do is music, watching tutorials on how to do things and not much else. No friends, no partying. I’m still trying to fine-tune my time and energy…

.

.

 

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

My name is GR3YWXLF, new age supervillain. It’s basically greywolf but spelled ultra-fancier. Like 6LACK is actually “Black”. If you didn’t understand before, you should now – Mind is blown right.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

“MAD.”- A song about never apologizing for your energies. Naysayers will always be salty like a sea breeze, but don’t let them water down your flavour.

Madame Psychosis is a five-piece alt-pop and indie rock band from Toronto.

 

Members include singer Michelle Mondesir, guitar players Bret McCaffrey and Rene Ip, drummer Jaina Tharakan, and bass player Giovanni Paola.

 

The band released their debut album on June 16th, 2017 and received a positive response. Most notably, the single “Space Motorcycle” cracked Alan Cross’ Top 11 Playlist. The album was also featured on 94.9 The Rock FM’s artist spotlight, Generation Next, in May of 2018. Four songs from the debut album were showcased, including “Space Motorcycle”, “Run”, “On Top of The Game”, and “Mellow”.

 

The band supported the album by performing at venues across Toronto, including at the legendary Opera House and The Horseshoe Tavern.

 

Madame Psychosis is now preparing for the release of their upcoming sophomore album. The band released the “infectious earworm”, “Kapow” on July 8th, 2019.

 

In their review, Nashville-based East of 8th says “‘Kapow’ is a non-stop, energy ride shooting out of the gate with a driving drumbeat, a thunderous guitar riff, and an anthemic lyrical delivery.”

 

The song premiered exclusively in Canada with The Spill Magazine and in the U.S. with East of 8th.

 

They also released the “soaring” single “Crashing Down” on May 6th, 2019 and premiered the song exclusively with The Spill Magazine ahead of their two showcase performances at Canadian Music Week 2019.

 

They were also named to Dropout Entertainment’s Top Picks for CMW and released a music video for the single. Odd Nugget says the song “is all mellifluous magic wrapped in a grungy garage rock exterior” in their review, adding that “Madame Psychosis envelop us in an edgy rock dimension throughout ‘Crashing Down.”

 

Prior to “Crashing Down”, Madame Psychosis released “Just Wanna Be Myself” on January 3rd as the lead single. The band performed the song live on Global News’ national broadcast of The Morning Show.

 

A Journal of Musical Things says it’s “a fun, upbeat song with sweet yet edgy female vocals”.

 

Dropout Entertainment says “‘Just Wanna Be Myself’ is a pop-rock diddy and a testament to being comfortable, or the quest to be comfortable – in your own skin.”

 

Stereo Stickman says, “There’s a genuine air of honesty that runs throughout their songwriting…this song is one that gets better and better with each revisit.”

 

The band also released a music video for the song and are now preparing to showcase their work during their TV appearances on Global’s The Morning Show and CHCH’s Morning Live.

 

You can find their debut album and latest singles, “Kapow”, “Crashing Down” and “Just Wanna Be Myself”, on all major streaming services.

.

.

.

Explain how to overcome a writer’s block. 

Sometimes you have to walk away from a song and come back to it. I had to do that multiple times with “Kapow”, and then when I got back to it, it practically wrote itself in twenty minutes.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the tricks behind making a hit song.

It needs to have a catchy melody and a hook that grabs you. Once you have these two elements you’re pretty much set and can build around them.

.

.

.

Tell us how you get feedback for your demo before working on it.

Each band member gives their input and we also ask friends, family, and colleagues for their opinions.

.

.

.

 

Explain your recording experience in the studio.

We tend to record “live off the floor”, meaning we record as if we are playing live (except for the fact that vocals and guitar amps are in sound booths), with the odd overdub for minor corrections, solos, and additional instrumentation. We find that we get a truly authentic feel that way.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you compose.

Our guitar player Bret will often come up with a chord progression or melody, though other band members have also introduced ideas.

 

We then jam on the concept until it starts to feel right. Once the music is composed and the basic structure is put into place, Michelle will take it home and work on lyrics and vocal melodies. She will sometimes request structure changes for the purposes of flow. We then get together and play the song, making changes to the structure and addressing other nuances.

.

.

.

Tell us if you add effects to your vocals to sound better.

In most songs, a light reverb is added for a natural room acoustic sound. However, in some songs effects that are more noticeable are added, such as the distortion in “Kapow” for a grittier, crunchy feel and the strategically placed long flowing delays in “Crashing Down.”

.

.

.

 

Tell us the best streaming platform to get new fans.

Spotify is currently our best streaming platform followed by Apple Music.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on music education.

Music is definitely a lifelong educational pursuit. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional, it’s very important to continually educate yourself – even if not in a formal sense. Business and technology are always changing.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the shooting of a commercial music video for a song.

In our experience, we believe less is more. Music videos can be difficult and expensive. For us, we’ve relied on friends and family to help shoot and edit our music videos. We recently learned that YouTube is the biggest source of music discovery in Canada.

 

Videos are clearly important so we will continue to produce them. Video shoots involve long days. You have to perform the song dozens of times with the same level of energy and enthusiasm throughout.

 

We’ve learned to just trust the crew and do what you’re told. We’re looking at taking our next video to the next level. Stay tuned for that!

.

.

.

Tell us how you relate with other artists.

We think there is an inherent connection between artists that makes it easy to relate with each another. Whether it is discussing the challenges of songwriting or sharing recommendations on booking gigs, we are all looking for the same things: exposure and opportunity.

 

Most of our conversations with other artists stem from this idea. As a result, artists form an enormous support network. We’ve been lucky to meet some incredible artists along the way and it has always been easy to relate with them because we know we are all in the same boat.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you can collaborate with an artist of a different genre.

Sure! Our lead singer Michelle came from an R&B/soul background. Plus, it’s always fun to experiment and broaden our own sound by working with artists from different genres.

.

.

.

 

Explain how to finance a music project.

Grants are always the best bet. However, if you don’t have a grant, there are other options, including labels, sponsorships, or – if you’re able to – personal finances.

 

We have personally financed most of our projects but we’ve also called on family, friends and even members of our band with special skill sets to donate their time and skills. For example, marketing, photography, videography, mixing, and social media.

.

.

.

 

Explain how to copyright a musical work.

There are a few ways to do this. In the US and in Canada, a copyright exists as soon as you complete a song and “fix it” in a form like a sheet music, or recording it on hard drive or CD. You can also do it in a more official way through the Government of Canada website for about $50.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to generate income from a musical work.

A song purchase is the most profitable; however, it has become less popular to purchase music with the rise of streaming services. So in this day and age, streaming services, sync placements, and live shows are the main sources of revenue.

.

.

.

List the name of organizations you know can be helpful to new artists.

There are too many to name and they can vary in importance based on your genre and needs, but the two biggest ones in Canada in our opinion are SOCAN and Factor.

.

.

.

Send a message to your fans.

Words cannot capture how we feel about our fans. They take us to a different level, fuelling our ambition and desire to keep going, to keep writing songs and to keep performing. They give us energy on stage and in the studio. We cannot thank them enough, especially those who have stuck with us since day one. Many of them have been to almost every single show. They are loyal to us and we are loyal to them. Simply, “thank you – we can’t wait to see your beautiful faces at our next show.”

.

.

.

 

Explain the process involved in recording a vocal.

A big part of recording a vocal from a vocalist’s standpoint is being in the right headspace to convey the feeling and sentiment of the song. It’s all about the vibe. We want people to not only listen to the song but feel its meaning as well.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

“Kapow” is an anthemic, feel-good slice of alt-pop fitting for hot days in the sun and long drives with car windows rolled down.

 

It highlights the pursuit that lies at the heart of getting someone you’re interested in to give you a chance, and the heart-dropping moment of being rejected.

 

This song is easily one of our favourites to perform live with its high-energy vibe. We wanted to create a fun summer song that people could sing along to and we believe we pulled it off.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

The name of our band comes from a character in a book called – “Infinite Jest” by David Foster Wallace. The character, Joelle Van Dyne, goes by the moniker of Madame Psychosis. We also discovered that it references the term “metempsychosis”, which is a Greek term for reincarnation. We actually have a whole post on our website about our band name.

 

We are still working on the name of our upcoming sophomore album, which is going to be released on September 20th, 2019. We are throwing around ideas, but nothing has stuck so far.

.

Share your press release and review with us.

Madame Psychosis releases “infectious earworm”, “Kapow”, just in time for summer – A “non-stop, energy ride shooting out of the gate with a driving drumbeat, a thunderous guitar riff, and an anthemic lyrical delivery.”

 

Toronto-based alt-pop band Madame Psychosis is welcoming the summer with the release of “Kapow”, their third single of 2019.

 

With a catchy, sing-along chorus and a gritty, fast-paced progression, “Kapow” is an anthemic, feel-good slice of alt-pop fitting for hot days in the sun and long drives with car windows rolled down. “Kapow” highlights the pursuit that lies at the heart of getting someone you are interested in to give you a chance, and the heart-dropping moment of being rejected.

 

It was recorded at Union Sound Company in Toronto and mixed by Alex Gamble. It premiered exclusively with The Spill Magazine on July 4th in Canada, and with Nashville-based East of 8th in the U.S. on July 7th. It is available on all major streaming services today.

 

The five-piece band first made waves with their debut album “Madame Psychosis”, released in June of 2017.

 

Alan Cross, the internationally syndicated host of The Ongoing History of New Music, selected the single “Space Motorcycle” for his weekly Top 11 Playlist in August of 2017. The album was also featured on 94.9 The Rock’s emerging artist spotlight Generation Next.

 

In January of 2019, the band released “Just Wanna Be Myself” as the lead single off their upcoming sophomore record and performed it live on Global’s nationally televised The Morning Show…They also performed at Canadian Music Week, where they hit the stage for two showcase performances and cracked Dropout Entertainment’s Top Picks for CMW. Coming off the heels of this positive reception, the band is turning their attention to the release of their sophomore album in September. To promote the album, they will be performing “Kapow” on CHCH Morning Live on August 9th and on Global’s The Morning Show on September 23rd.
