The past couple of days have been very exciting and a huge milestone for me. I got the mix for my debut song ‘Drought Breaker’ back from the studio in New York!
I literally broke out into a sweat when I sat down to have my first listen. This song is the culmination of 8 years (very part time) research and work to create a professional song at home. To finally hand it over to someone else and say it’s finished is a huge thing to do but I must say all the hard work and patience has paid off. I’m so happy with this mix! I only had a couple minor tweak requests to get it to exactly where I wanted it.
To add to the great feeling of accomplishment Roman who mixed the song posted this compliment on Facebook:
Now I need to seriously plan how to release this song!! The song still needs to be mastered and I will make a video (or two) for it too. I need to make some time to finish my website as well as work out how to actually release the song too!
My initial research suggest I need to join APRA AMCOS in Australia to manage the rights (royalties). I’ll most likely release my song through CD Baby. I like that there’s no annual charge – just a onetime fee per song (or album).
If anyone out there has tips or advice I’m all ears! Please leave a comment below.
