Music Placement Update for 8.13.12 - Monster Man, My Big Redneck Vacation, Hollywood Treasure and more!

Time for another weekly update of new music placements and last week was a good one! I'll start with some shows that my music has previously been in... one episode of The Dr. Oz Show (syndicate), three of Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis (Bravo), and SIX episodes of Rajin' Cajuns (Discovery)! Then as for new shows... one episode of Guiliana and Bill (Style), four episodes of Saw Dogs (Velocity), two episodes of My Big Redneck Vacation (CMT), one episode of American Digger (Spike), three episodes of Hollywood Treasure (Syfy) and finally, two episodes of Monster Man (Syfy)!

The cues that were used on Monster Man, Hollywood Treasure, American Digger and Rajin' Cajuns were written specifically for those shows. It's always a nice feeling of accomplishment when the cues you write and pitch for a specific show end up actually getting used by the music editors. Great feeling actually.

This past week I've been writing some blues cues for the show Duck Dynasty on A&E. I only had a chance to write one cue for the first season and it got used twice in one episode so this time around I've tried to write a few more than that. Hope they find their way on to the show too! But I'll be watching the show regardless as it's one of the few reality TV shows that both me and my wife ACTUALLY enjoy. I've got all of season one still on my DVR and not just for music research purposes :-)

Until next time...

Music Placement Updates - American Pickers, Ludo Bites America, Interior Therapy

I had a chance this past weekend to spend some time with my family and some dear friends, one of which I hadn't seen in over 15 years and a few that I hadn't seen in over 20!!! It was wonderful to get spend some time with so many people that have been and continue to be near and dear to my heart for all these years. The weekend went by WAY too fast. While I'm glad to be home, I think I began to miss being in KY before I even got outside of the city limits.

During lunch on Saturday one of my friends asked me if I had any new placements to talk about and at the time I was like, well, none since last week's blog post. Had I checked my phone while I was there, I could have said "...well... actually looks like I just had 4 new cue sheets show up!" So Greg K., this update is for you my friend!

I had mentioned last week that I had some music used in the show American Pickers but I didn't know which cue or how many episodes. Well, now I do. It was one episode and they used a bluesy alt rock piece called "Swagger and Attitude" that I've included below for anyone curious to hear it.

I also had some placements in a couple more new shows. One of them is a show called Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis. They used an upbeat, inspirational pop/rock cue in one episode. And the other new show is called Ludo Bites America. I had 2 cues used in 2 episodes of that show, both of them being dramedy cues.

Always fun to get new placements!

Music Placement Updates - Colbert Report, American Pickers, Last Call with Carson Daly, American Weed

I've got some new placements to report for the past couple of weeks. I had a new episode of Last Call with Carson Daly as well as an episode of American Weed show up in my online cue sheet site last week. That makes six episodes of the Carson Daly show and 3 episodes of American Weed that my music has been used in.

Here's the cue that got used in the Carson Daly show. It's called "Delta Bluesberry Pie" and it played for 1:13. It's a bit of retro style slide guitar delta blues cue.

So far this week I had some cue sheets show up for some new shows that I've never been in before. The first was an episode of the Colbert Report show that aired back on February 13th on Comedy Central. They used 0:14 of a metal cue I wrote called "Death Blow." And the other debut series was for the show American Pickers. I'm not sure how many episodes or what cue was used in that one yet, just know that something was used.

Until next time...
