  1. Well my name is Fred Genius and I really look forward to a call from Movie Song Vault to use some of my music. I’ve been writing and recording for a long time, and I think this is a very unique idea for unsigned artist are writers to put there songs out there where they can at least be heard by some professionals, as long as the music is copywrittten, which mine’s is, you should be covered to try your music on sites like this. So I look forward to a call from Movie Song Vault to see what can happen……..thanks alot…..This Is Fred Genius.

  2. I’ve sold a couple songs to movie song vault and had a great experience. They continue to keep me informed as to where my songs are at and are always interested in hearing more. If an artist has songs that they aren’t using anymore or don’t plan on doing anything with and a company like movie song vault will pay you for them, why not right? you still get credit for it and your music is actually out there doing something rather than sitting in your basement with only yourself to listen to it.

    1. Jenn,

      If you could share what type of music you were able to sell to them? I have a few tracks that haven’t gotten me much airtime and would like to see if I could sell it to them.

      Correct me if I am wrong, but is this a buyout situation?

      I will be submitting soon. Thanks!

    1. Yes, I am!

      I do not really wish misfortune to anyone here, well maybe a few, but that isn’t the point. The point is that music is a hustle. You not only have to have the musical abilities, but you have to have a sense of the business and the ambition to keep going.

      I am sure many of you are more talented than me. But most of you will never get as many songs out as I have or make as much money. Why? Because you do not know how to hustle. It’s all about selling yourself to these companies. They can get songs for free.

      Follow the money and success will come.

      1. Yadgyu:

        I think a little humility is in order. I don’t disagree with your basic precept as to the importance of promoting oneself and that music is a business. But making comments such as “But most of you will never get as many songs out as I have or make as much money.” is annoying and most likely not even close to being true. Mainly because you have no idea as to who the people are on this site, their status, nor their income. Some of your other comments strike me as equally ill-informed not to mention the fact that they appear to come from someone without much life experience.

        I do welcome all constructive comments but as the owner of this site I retain the right to delete any comments (and I have) that keep this site from becoming anything less than civil (my definition!). The main point I want to make is that there are ways to get your ideas across without being so heavy handed. So please, a little more respect for everyone on this site.

        Thank you.


  3. Has nothing to do with being a “fraidy cat” Yadgyu. I’m intelligent enough not to be set up for a chump. If you want to be a whimpy “yes man”, than by all means whimp-out.

  4. They must have a deal with Sonicbids. Why else would they give priorty to those submissions. Many musicians like myself can give direct links to our tracks. What could be easier for them than that.

    Because of that, I’m going to give them the lowest vote.

    1. That is a poor attitude.

      Just pay the submission fee. Isn’t it worth it to make money? You invest in other things like your house, 401(k), education, music equipment, etc. Why be scared and afraid about making some real money from doing something you love? I just do not get the ‘fraidy cat mentality of some musicians!

  5. From Movie Song Vault site:

    “Movie Song Vault purchases the publishers share of the songs copyright. We also purchase master recordings directly from the artist. The artist retains their writers share of the song and continues to receive public performance income generated by any placements made by the Movie Song Vault team. If a song is placed in a movie, TV show, advertisement or on a soundtrack then the artist will get credit on the placement whenever possible. .”

    Also from their site:

    “Due to the thousands of submissions we receive on a monthly basis, it can sometimes take up to six weeks for a response by the MSV A&R team if they are interested in making you an offer. Get a faster response by submitting through Sonicbids. All Sonicbids submissions take guaranteed priority over regular submissions. Click here to submit through Sonicbids.”

    Looks like you have to pay to submit as Sonicbids charges you.
