I'd be surprised if there wasn't, but library music (as opposed to sound design libraries) is not really my area of expertise I'm afraid.

I did explore a few options some years back, but despite personal recommendations from two long-time existing composers on their books, the library I approached wanted me to pay a fee to get any of my music into the library 'for possible use by their vast clientbase', so I politely declined :beamup:

There must be quite a few library music contributors posting here though, so hopefully someone will chip in with more positive comments :smirk:

Nevermind, it was worth a try Martin. Everyone seems to keep their cards very close to their chest in these forums.

Show me a muso that don't keep his cards close to his chest and I'll show you a pink Chihuahua tickling a giant centipede with a feather duster.

Having said that, from what I have seen of your postings and replies I would say you have had some rather good advice - i.e from C-Dogg.

OK, so this is it.

This is our band. and this is our band's site.

https://www.drmindflip.com/


The Doc has been writing and releasing songs for about three years now (for free online) and the band (same name, but complete with all the creatures, i.e., the rest of us) are coming up to our first birthday as a live performance group this April.
Our first big album is currently being mastered by a very talented, grammy award winning lady-who-shall-remain-nameless in London and we're DYING with excitement.


...we're also dying of poverty, hardship and hard work getting distribution, package design, vinyl artwork, CD art work all ready to go and designed and organized by us. Learning about royalties, PPI codes, Rights organizations. Planning gigs for the summer, applying to festivals.

Basically we're finding out why in a perfect world, it's better to leave the music to the musicians, and the people who normally do all this craic, to do all this craic.

Still it'll be nice when it's finished knowing our own blood, sweat and tears that made it.

Whats up guys!

Electronica/Future Bass Site

My site was done by a good friend of mine at http://bubbls.co/ and I think he did an amazing job. Check it out at:

http://rawzealmusic.com/

Let me know what you guys think! I think the most important thing is the email in exchange for the free download. I'd love to hear feedback on what I could improve.

Thanks! :thumbup:

Please take a minute to check out www.themusiccompany.tv

As a producer, songwriter and musician I've been through some crazy stuff in this industry and now i"m trying to help artists learn a much smarter way to navigate the music business. If you actually learn the business end, your chances of being successful are so much better.

We're hoping that people find the value in this and start to find their success. We're also looking for affiliate parters if anyone is interested email info@themusiccompany.tv

Thanks!

I'm sorry but I have to say this.

It looks to me that you're just trying to help yourself by leeching off wannabe musicians. Yet another website trying to coax money out of those desperate to get a foot on the ladder. The video made me feel quite queasy.

EBooks...contact lists....a facebook group....Yeuch.

Been writing electronic music around a decade, but always through labels. Today I released my first independant album, currently it's only available on bandcamp. I've never been comfortable shouting about my own music before but immensely happy with this, everyone who's listened so far has said it's well-produced, and very, very chill...

Hey there ... here's my band's site - https://www.hulmanoids.com/

Being an old punk , I did everything DIY stylee ... this site was made using a prog I got free with a magazine (Namo Web Edotor 4) - back in 2004... other stuff - like the full screen background vid are cut and pasted from other templates etc. (cut 'n'paste - them old punk/DIY skills still come in handy)

Stuff like the bandcamp players are dead useful ... why bother looking for fancy players when you've got an easy cut 'n' paste solution. (I tried - it's hell)

I've found it is possible to do everything yourself as a musician - as long as you remember you are a musician, and not a webmaster/technician/accountant etc. - so grab those short-cuts.

Here's another one I did for my record co. - a little more flashy - made from a template that cost less than 20 dollars on the Envato market, I think
http://newwavepublishing.com/

I left school at 15 and didn't own a computer until 2004, but I managed to do this stuff on next to no budget - so anyone can do it.

Hey my name is Redemption Piano.
21 Years old and from Germany
I do different kinds of genres. Basically what is on my mind right now.

I use FLStudio and had some commissions for around 50 bucks the track.
I started using FL in December 2017 and i think im learning fast...maybe i've got that from the decade of piano playing. I don't aim for a particular genre, i just do whatever my inspiration tells me to do. I would like some feedback, negative0 feedback preferred( or else i can't see what to improve)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvOQ8S ... ZD0fQ4wx0w

Here is some stuff on me
Feel free to leave a comment!

Best regards

Since I last shared I have added a few more tracks on Soundcloud. I get encouraging comments but never equates to a sale on Bandcamp, the latter site I personaly thnk is a waste of time sadly.
