The Brassy Broadcast podcast is an exploration of ways we create, engage, and communicate. 

Jan 14, 2015

This is Part 2 of my conversation with singer/songwriter Jennie DeVoe. Jennie has had songs licensed for TV shows and commercials, played to packed houses across the country, and voiced national ad campaigns.

She’s also an animal lover, business savvy broad, and an all around good gal. We continue our conversation on music licensing, how to stop giving your music away, and meeting musical heroes.

The Dish:

  •  Licensing existing catalog for commercials
  •        Saying “Yes” and then figuring it out
  •        How to stop apologizing for what you charge
  •        Exclusivity Fees
  •        Licensing negotiating strategies
  •        The importance of asking questions
  •        How struggle is part of us earning a great piece of art
  •        Being the Captain of your ship and providing direction
  •        Jennie’s experiences meeting the people she admires
  • Working with producer John Parish
  •        What it’s like working with Kenny Aronoff
  •      Playing Lilith Fair with Sarah McLachlan, The Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow, Liz Phair, and Debora Cox
  •      The beauty of being scared on stage
  •      Eyebrow Communication Skills
