Tammy Weis is one of many recording artists who have ‘joined the Cue’ (well CueSongs that is) It’s a new company that music innovator Peter Gabriel has co founded. CueSongs provides ‘Ready to go’ music licensing by well known artists. Tammy has seen success in her native Canada, Europe and London where she now resides. But like many successful musicians, she still struggles to support herself soley on her music….until now It was last summer when she watched CueSongs CEO Ed Averdieck (co-founder along with Gabriel) do a presentation on the company.
She immediately knew she wanted to be involved. After the session she introduced herself and gave a brief background of her music and media sales experience. To her surprise Ed responded by saying ‘I know you; I just heard you on BBC Radio Four Woman's Hour!' and the rest is history Weis, like so many other artists realizes that only a relatively small proportion of copyrights earn licensing income in syncs at the moments. CueSongs plans to create a new revenue stream for artists and writers, consisting of hundreds of thousands of smaller sized transactions, and bring new money into the music business.
Our current partners include: Sony Music, Sony ATV, Peer Music, MusicSales, Real World, Infectious, Skint & Black Hole Recordings . As well, some of our artists include: Ferry Corsten, Boy George, Peter Gabriel, Katrina & the Waves , Ziggy Marley and the Stereo MC's to name a few Questions answered : How can I reduce the headache of music licensing? How can I licence tracks from iconic artists with a budget of less than £1000?
