Write, Submit, Forget, Repeat

In the TAXI community we have a saying, Write, Submit, Forget & Repeat.   The “Forget” is the hard part. The point is, you have to write songs, submit them to opportunities and then move on to the next song/opportunity.  You can’t waste time wondering and worrying about whether you get the placement or not. And this placement is a perfect example.

Years ago, I wrote this song, Boom Dynamite, with former Bad Boy producer Chucky Thompson.  It was created for an artist that he was developing at the time. It was an exciting opportunity but it ultimately didn’t happen.

And now, years later, he’s working with Chinese R&B star Catina Mezereon and she ends up recording the song and it gets a major feature in choreographer Laurieann Gibson’s show: Beyond The Spotlight.

So, this is a reminder to myself – just keep writing, keep submitting.  Then forget and repeat!!

Thanks TAXI!!

Proud – In Studio Performance – feat Cleveland P. Jones

written and produced by Eric J. Campbell

featuring Cleveland P. Jones on vocals.

Proud is a song over a year in the making.

It came to me a few months after my wife Stacy passed away.

I played with the idea in my head for a while but didn’t fully act on it.

Then, in Oct of 2018, I committed to fully writing, producing and recording the song.

On my page you can also watch the full ‘Making Of’ Video to see how it all came together.

Lyrics

verse 1

I miss you here

It doesn’t seem fair

I’ve tried to move on

but your fragrance is strong

all of our hopes

and all of our dreams

Finally happening

but you’re not here to see

chorus

but I hope you are proud

I hope you are proud

if you’re looking down

right now

let me know that you’re proud

Verse 2

I’ve kept the fire

I’ve stayed in the race

And when I get tired

I picture your face

And I remember your words

as I hustle along

I see your face in the stands

I hear you cheering me on

chorus

Are you saying you’re proud

I hope you are proud

if you’re looking down

I sure hope you are proud

bridge

tell me it’s true

encourage me now

tell me that you’re keeping watch

helping me to be strong

I wake up at night

I swear something touched me

I think it’s you pushing me on

I gotta believe

cause I can’t believe that you would just

leave me

here to figure it out

on my own

This wasn’t the plan

we said that we would cross

the finish together

I don’t understand

what kind of grace

is it to steal you away

I’m trusting I’ll see you again

and when I do

I know you

will tell me you’re proud

chorus

Free 60 minute video course for music producers

Music Producer? Want to do it FullTime?
Follow these Six Steps towards Six Figure Income

Presented by Eric J Campbell – Songwriter / Producer. My music has been placed on various TV shows (Greenleaf, Shameless, Love & Hip Hop, Revenge, MTV True Life, etc). I’ve also place music with recording artists including Musiq Soulchild, Bootsy Collins and Sara Stokes.

This is a detailed course with lots of info and no sales pitches. It’s just under 60 minutes and full of everything you need to start making money from your music production.

As I say in the video, this isn’t about overnight success. The total time to implement all of these steps is two to five years (depending on your current level). That may seem like a lot but if you knew you could walk away from your job in 2 to 5 years wouldn’t you? Well this plan will help you to do that. Of course, I can’t guarantee results and how much you ultimately make will be based on your talent and your hustle but these are the steps that have helped me and a numerous people, that I know personally, do music full time.

Watch the complete video and feel free to comment or message me if you have any questions. I hope you find it helpful!

@tlburt17 You’ve got to tell the story bro. 😂
@tlburt17 Seriously????? Roommates. Wow!!! What are the chances? At least one of our songs are signed with Starlab. He’s a longtime collaborator of mine.
@nickventurella Omg!!! I’m gonna ask for this everywhere!!!
@tlburt17 You at a Starlab camp? Is Axel Bauer there? Tell him I said hi!!!
I just went to an Italian restaurant in Tucson where they poured espresso directly into a cup of gelato with whip cream and served it. Is this a regular Italian thing that I didn’t know about? Cause it was AMAZING!!!!
My to do list is like the basket of fish and loaves. I check something off and 5 more appear. I’m tired. 😭😭 Good night.
I’m not sure what happened but my Reels are now outperforming my TikToks for organic views. Anyone else seeing this?
You can make your instrumentals more syncable by making them dynamic - introduce new sounds every 4 or 8 bars; include drop outs at the end of sections and transitions between sections.
Big sync tip - make sure your instrumentals hold interest by themselves when the vocals are removed. >50% of my placements were instrumental only
I run a sync agency called sus3 Music. Sometimes when I get a brief (request) for music, I have a song that I really want to pitch. But when I take the vocal off and listen to the instrumental, the song immediately loses interest.
