Great – you made it!
I’m happy you’re here. Why – because it’s an indicator that you’re ready to take the reigns in boosting your creative career and shaping it into a thriving and sustainable one that aligns with the true essence of you!
There’s a new online course in town, and it’s designed to help you reap through your writing and transform your static sound catalogue into an active music library ready for new possibilities.
You’re likely here because you know there are ways to earn while making music, that don’t demand you being onstage or churning out radio hits constantly. There’s scope for your music and you’re ready to find out ways of maximizing the content you’ve already created and will continue making, by grace. Maybe you’ve pressed the panic button before, and considered giving up on your career but then a song, booking, opportunity or revelation came and it prompted the realization that yep! – you’re ready to give it your best shot – responsibly – in a focused yet fun way.
Business doesn’t have to be boring.
I believe joy can be applied to something typically considered dull – like documentation (try not to yawn)…when the PURPOSE is at the core. When you join me in this online course through video calls, we’re gonna examine the infrastructure and avenues already in place to help you monitor and log your music, while mapping a reaping route. There are no guarantees when it comes to figures, yet there are numerous possibilities where making an honest prosperous living through music is concerned. This course is geared to bringing clarity when it comes to your catalogue and creative career, and also includes resourceful publishing info.
The struggle to balance the artistic essence with the administrative responsibilities is a real challenge. It’s not impossible, but it certainly helps to have a plan, rhythm, and structure in place to oil the conveyor belt of productivity.
We make a seamless connection between the creativity journey, and the publishing process.
“The 7Rs of Reaping Through Your songWriting” is an online course to help Songwriters and Session Musicians learn about P.R.Os, royalties, and song registrations while tapping into the earning possibilities and understanding sound libraries as intellectual property. This, along with music licensing is essentially a seasonal passive income stream that can help you earn through your existing and future musical works. Your music has value.
For many creatives, the focus is solely on production, and not necessarily publishing, which is essentially sharing content; making it available to the public. Totally understood! Creating requires time, talent / skill, and energy – and let’s face it – generally speaking, it’s a whole lot more fun than paperwork for most.
I was once faced with the reality that my output of energy far outweighed the inflow of measurable results. Then, one day amidst a chunk of studio bookings, I saw my name online. It was listed in the international music charts in a few countries (as #1 – #10), yet I barely cash in hand or in the bank at the time. Say whaaa?! Well, for one, I had been so busy writing, creating content, and overworking, the concept of registering songs, chronicling usages, tending to the admin side of the business was simply overlooked. Since then (inspired by a life re-design and priority shift) the harvest season started manifesting, the flagship song’s been remade 3 times so far, and I developed a method of managing the tides of creativity and publishing.
Documentation is key in the field of creativity.
It is the means through which works are logged, accounted for, and assigned income for.
Here’s the high-value package we offer to Singers, Composers, and Session Musicians on a path to building a thriving music career. I’ve had the honour of working with and for The Caribbean’s A-list artistes, award-winning recording studios, leading advertising agencies, and stellar music mentors in the region, while coaching aspiring artistes along the way.
Throughout the years, countless artists and music peeps have reached out for insight on things like vocal-care, conference prep, registrations & royalties and pitching songs, I’ve found it essential to share knowledge on mapping a musical path, breathing life into songs you’ve forgotten about, and shaping a sustainable career in your niche, using strategic tools, a map – and a whole lot of faith.
Understanding the business side of music can seem overwhelming to even a seasoned artist – “the industry” is no piece o’ sweet bread.
As an indie artiste you can shape a thriving career in your niche writing and recording songs you love, while staying true to your values and beliefs.
I get it and have had my fair share of bloopers and nerve-wracking moments on my journey, so I can identify with how intimidating, awkward (and un-fun) these things can feel. But fickle feelings can be irrelevant when it comes to your creative destiny. This course and related eBooks are specifically designed to assist you with documentation insight so you can outline a clear path forward.

Did you know there are structures in place to help you monitor and collect through your music?
Do the words metadata, ISRC codes, and P.R.Os ring a bell? Do you cringe at the word copyright?
For quite some time, this was gibberish to me. I lost sooo much income that had been accumulating through the years, simply because I had no clue about any of this and was soooo busy writing and recording to find out, join a P.R.O and tune in. It took a pause for a cause, mentorship with Ice Records Ltd., “Music Publishing 101” with Berklee Online, research, hiccups along the way, and a freelance post as documentation specialist with a performers’ rights organization, to learn about keys to sustainable artistry.
