Karyn Rachtman from Mind Your Music

One of the questions I receive most often from independent musicians is “how do I get my music licensed in television and films?” 

It’s easy to understand why licensing would be on the minds of so many musicians. A placement in the right television show or film can be incredibly lucrative, it can lead to an explosion of new fans, and it can result in royalties for years (even decades). However – for the all of the aforementioned reasons –  it’s not always easy to land these much-coveted placements.

But you’re in luck!

In episode #36 of the Music Marketing Manifesto Podcast I reached out to my old friend, Karyn Rachtman. Who just happens to be one of the most influential music supervisors of all time.

Her credits as music supervisor include groundbreaking soundtracks such as Pulp Fiction, Moulin Rouge, Reservoir Dogs, Clueless, Reality Bites, Boogie Nights, Romeo and Juilet, Office Space, the Basketball Diaries, Laurel Canyon, and soooooo many more.

In this episode she shares her story, talks a bit about how music supervision works, and then tackles the simple but important question of just how independent musicians can go about getting their music licensed in television and film!
