    Beach Boys and Marvin Gaye and when she discovered her first Carpenters record it was a pivotal moment in her music career In fact she sang along to each track before she was old enough to understand what the songs were actually about Following her muse Diehl began recording her latest single Seriously while studying at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood CA After completing her studies she returned to Brazil but continued to collaborate with American producer Duddy via Skype and email sending drafts of the song back and forth Not totally familiar with North American music Diehl gained knowledge by acquiring books albums and information on international artists Indeed her passion was so great she learned everything she could and became a jack of all trades so she could put her music out independently acting as her own manager booking agent promoter graphic designer and publisher the epitome of a DIY artist With plans to return to the U S in the near future Diehl will be traveling with a suitcase full of new sounds a spicy musical perspective and enough material for a full length album For more details visit MelinaDiehl com Tags Melina Diehl Musicians Institute Previous Story Album Review Silver Snakes Saboteur 6 10 Next Story Entertainment One Partners with Metal Imprint Lifeblood 0 Shares Bernard Baur Related articles Music Connection Takes Over Winter NAMM 2015 More Industry News January 26 2015 Musicians Institute Appoints Glow Marketing As PR Agency More Industry News March 4 2014 Bonamassa Offers 35 000 Tuition to Musicians Institute Student More Industry News June 2 2015 Our Sponsors Newsletter Signup Sign Up Friday Freebie Weekly Bulletin New Issue Partner Offers Founded in 1977 on the principle of bridging the gap between the street and the elite Music Connection has grown from

    for free in L A s Topanga Canyon About six months later I connected with a cousin I had never met He was a music supervisor We got along and he got me an interview at Zync Music another licensing firm I was there for two years After that I started my own company at age 24 Artist Hunting When a music supervisor needs something he ll send out a search and give details about what he s looking for what the sound needs to be like the tempo the beat Most of our submissions are by managers we ve worked with or people who ve heard about us It s largely word of mouth and repeat business That being said one of our bands Dead Right has a Coors Light ad One of our employees wives found them online It can happen that way but mostly we have to have an A R meeting every two weeks where we listen to everything Originality Music supervisors like to receive music differently so we ve worked for years on ways of getting music to them without being too invasive Obviously we need music that s going to work we need to have what people are asking for So there s that element but part of what makes Lip Sync special is we re always working with unique artists who aren t just sound design They don t sound like a million other bands We try to keep it real with artists who are relevant and have records that are current Licensing Versus Publishing We launched our publishing division As a licensing company we take a commission off the upfront fees We don t take backend or anything like that We re not overbearing with our basic licensing agreement It s just a percentage of what we bring in But with our publishing clients it s a different scenario where we re pairing them in co writing sessions and different producers and creating custom content The Turning Tide When I started we were working with Secretly Canadian artists and their roster saw licensing as super precious or the devil I ve watched every last one of them come around It went from Oh I m precious and don t want to do it to I ve got to do this if I want to eat Selling out is a small minded way of thinking What better way to screw the man than by taking money from him Finding What s Good We try to find things that are going to speak to people that speak to us We re discerning and that s what makes us different I often have music supervisors saying Everything you sent us is good And people know that 1 2 Tags inc Lauren Harman Lip Sync Music Previous Story ole Acquires 5 Alarm Music Next Story Live Reviews Rye Brothers at the Cowboy 0 Shares Andy Kaufmann Related articles Get Paid Alternative Royalties For Indie Artists Feature

    and the community s reaction was amazing We realized we d have to do it every year It was a massive undertaking Awards Planning Stages The blessing and the curse of the way we operate is that stuff launches in my head and then I have to turn it into a reality I m usually in front of the awards show by about eight months The show brings me right to the edge We have about eight elements at our live event and each have their own signature I can only imagine what being an addict is like But doing this show is much like being one As Showtime Approaches Approximately three months prior we put on about four teams and hire five execution teams On a weekly basis we have group meetings and I m on the phone with them for months leading up to it and several months afterwards Showtime Dave and I stay backstage I sneak out front to see if what we ve dreamt up actually works I try not to be seen which never works It s satisfying when bits hit like when engineer Ross Hogarth did the Nae Nae dance or when we stumbled upon the father daughter YouTube beatbox sensation Nicole Paris and Ed Cage We snared them before James Corden and Good Morning America did And we spent a lot of time on the pairing of presenters Clean Up and Follow Up We don t post the show live so there s a lot of post production that we have to do There s a large amount of strategy that we have to compile for how we want to release it There are all kinds of things you have to be aware of takedown notices time limitations etc And there are a number of ways that we present things that become digestible to different people on different platforms We run counter to the way that people now view video Pensado s Place is an hour I don t know many people that will sit for that long and watch something We can t relax and not be smart about how we present things to our audience For the show this year we packaged it in a way in which people can watch all of it or see it in 20 small bites Ongoing Effort We believe in after promotion When you live online you don t ever have to be done You have to be smart about your timing but we don t think it stops after the event There are a lot of people on the team going in and a number of people have to be dealt with afterwards That s a broad swath of social media public relations and business development It s a lot of coordination of a lot of bodies and it s expensive 1 2 Tags dave pensado herb trawick pensado awards pensados place Previous Story Big Machine Label Group Expands to U K Next Story
