The quick rundown:
A song I co-wrote with my friend Robert Navarro called “Not That Into You” was recently included in a new Universal library called Burn.
I have another song actually called Burn that is about to be finished that is in consideration for another Universal library.
My own library Dancin Deer Audio is now open for business. I’ve recently hired several sales people.
I’ve started getting remixes of a new song called Thump Thump Thump. I’m really excited about them.
New endorsements include Apogee Electronics, Studio Devil, and Red Wirez.
In alternate news I was asked to give some advice to fellow musicians by my friend Derek Sivers. He was giving a talk at the infamous South by South West music festival. I video taped my advice and sent it over to him. Turns out he used it during his speech. The fun thing about it is that I’ve never been to SxSW – I’ve wanted to go. Now I’ve given a talk there and I’ve never actually been there.
Now it’s time to get back to the music making. I’ve got other musical endeavors coming on the horizon. When they’re more concrete, you’ll get it here first.
New Release: Do You Want To Play – NFL Mixes
That’s right football fans, now the new sports anthem is available for your favorite NFL team. Be the first on your block to get your own copy available now on iTunes, Amazon MP3, and CD Baby. It will come to other digital sites as well.
The song “Not That Into You” co-written by Robert Navarro and I for the American Youth Rock Library has already been licensed and used over 100 times in 3 months. It’s one of the top performing songs in the library. Very exciting indeed.
I now have an official Artist Profile on iTunes Ping, here’s the link: Jody on Ping.
Last week I was hired to sing a duet for the theme song of a new video game. It was a pleasure to work with John Rodd and Aubrey Ashburn on the project. (More to come on it).
My library Dancin Deer Audio has inked a deal with the Fox Sports Network. We’re excited to have our music in the hands of the sports broadcasting giant. Looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership.
