I wouldn’t go down that path unless it’s explicitly laid out, in the exclusive contract, that you can.
Is there an easy way to find which libraries are looking for a specific genre of music?
The music library doesn’t work that way. You will find that the majority of libraries want (and have) a wide variety of genres.
This is a long game. It’s marathon not a sprint!June 14, 2022 at 10:23 am in reply to: Self publishing to streaming services & non-exclusive libraries? #39830
As long as you own all the rights it shouldn’t be a problem. I, and others, do exactly that.
I wouldn’t expect the music sup to ask for the publishing share but it might be a deal breaker. I would make it non-exclusive and re-title the music so they only get the publishing royalties on those titles.
I would have to disagree with the Taxi comment. I joined them three different times over the couple of decades they have been around. I never found it useful but YMMV.
I generally don’t let MLR get involved in Taxi discussions as I have learned it can quickly descend into chaos.
Another quick way to find the latest comments.
https://musiclibraryreport.com/more-library-comments/. The link is also on the left hand margin of every page.
One other thing. I just got rid of the nested comments. It can get confusing as sometimes people will respond to the wrong comment. Let me know what you think. I’m also thinking of getting rid of the “paging” of comments. That might be more of a problem as some libraries have over a thousand comments.
Okay guys, you spoke, I listened. Dates are back on library comments!
Yes it can be overwhelming when first starting but success is achievable. You could find all you need to know just on the free forums here but you would need to do a lot of digging. I’ve never taken a course but that’s not to say they are bad. I just don’t know about them. As we like to say this is marathon not a sprint. So, take a deep breath, listen to a lot of music on the various libraries, do a lot of research and believe in your self!
