So, I just got the news (BMI Royalty Statement) that several reality TV shows have used more of my music in more of the episodes (7 episodes for one of the shows this time) they recorded back earlier this year.

It was the same shows as before. Hollywood Hillbillies and Beverly Hills Pawn. This goes to show that once you get the ear of a producer, if you're producing music they like, they will come back to you for more.

I also noticed that I picked up a few reruns of the "10 things..." film series.

The songs they used are on my web site so you can hear what they selected for use in the shows. Here's the links to the songs.

While The Sun Shines

Harvest Time

The other songs they used are not online in a public access site..... sorry....

This now makes 2 seasons that my music has been used in these TV shows.

Since I have been very busy and not doing much writing or recording here for the past few months, it's a nice reminder that the music is out there and working for me. I really do need to take time and get back into the studio. There's a bunch of ideas floating around that need to be anchored to some digital tracks.

Thanks to Will, Gibson, Greg, David and Paddy for commenting.....

The funny thing is with bluegrass...I have a love/hate relationship.... some of it I love, and there's some of it I hate. Depends on the style. Flailing banjos I can do without, but melodic new grass along the lines of Krauss, now that's some pretty stuff.

Congratulations, Herb! Good stuff. Did you use Taxi, or some other placement service?

Very happy for you. Now get back to work with some more new stuff! smile

I quit TAXI quite some time back because they were "returning" practically everything I was submitting. I knew other folks were placing music outside of TAXI and perhaps I could too. So I started looking for and vetting libraries. I found a few good ones and unbeknownst to me, the president of one of them was plugging my music to producers. So, essentially, no placement services were involved. This was done the old fashioned way. Making connections and providing the music they can use.

I do, on occasion, use a "placement service" that has no membership fee, when they send me a listing that I might be interested in submitting music for consideration. As a result, I have added a library or two in that manner but then once that connection is made, I work with the library directly from that point forward.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
