"Guide to the Best Synch Deal Possible" - Article in Digital Music News

I found this interesting and easy to follow article on Facebook today, and thought to share it here as there are some really useful titbits of information in there.

It discusses the various differences in synch licensing contracts, from different sources, plus clear examples of what is a good thing for a songwriter to sign, an OK contract, and a simply terrible contract so far as the songwriter is concerned.

There is also some in depth description of just what a synch license is, what it is for and who it affects.

This is useful information for any songwriters, and/or artists, starting out in the tv and film music business, as well as some extra detail for those who have a little more experience too.

It is just one in a series of articles, the third I think.  I'll share any others that are equally as informative here also.

'Blanket Of Love' - new co-write with Dave Walton & Steve Collom

A 'Taxi friend', Dave Walton, asked me last year if I'd like to write some lyrics for his daughter's wedding, to be precise the father/daughter dance song for the wedding reception.  Naturally I said yes, as I am ever the romantic and this was a wonderful gesture.

The song grew and developed, and we asked Steve Collom to collaborate with us on melody and to sing the song.  Eventually the finished track was used at the wedding - so romantic !

Post wedding, we have tweaked and edited a bit, and are now ready to let the track loose on the world !  It has been purposely written to suit romantic contemporary  film & tv uses, rather than a radio friendly hit song.

It's currently still non exclusive, and all licensing inquiries are welcome.
