Yvonne Wilcox, Pen Name ASCAP Music Publisher, Digital Music Distributor, Virtual City Radio TV Music Supervisor and BlogTalkRadio Host (USA)
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I learned how to play the Piano when I was 5 years old but due to family hardships, I had to stop at the age of 10 years old, but that did not stop my love of Music. Currently I am an ASCAP Music Publisher, Record Union Senior A&R, PRLog Journalist, Blog Talk Radio Host, IN THE VIRTUAL CITY RADIO TV Broadcaster on YouTube and a College Underground Radio Social Media Manager.
Have you licensed your music / signed your artists internationally?
I have not Licensed any Music Internationally but one of the Artists I represent was offered a Magazine Feature with a company in Germany, which is scheduled to happen soon so I will not go into detail until the feature is made public. Which country do you think is the best to license music to? I personally think that any Country other than the United States is best. Why? Because they seem to show an interest in our Music based on my Distribution reports more fans in Germany and Russia support us on Streaming Sites.
If you were to partner with someone to license his music / sign up him as an artist for your region, what sort of music are you looking out for?
Instrumental, POP and EDM Why? I personally think those Genres have a better chance at Music Licensing simply because of the requests I get from Music Supervisors of TV and Film.
Notable projects you have completed
In the Music Industry, I think we never really complete projects, I measure success in LEVELS the final LEVEL is when I can pay cash for a Mansion.
Your artists are….
I do not have any Artists officially signed to me, I work with Artists as either their Music Publisher, Music Distribution, Business Analyst, Marketing Analyst or Publicist.
Upcoming projects / tours?
I have one project that I am trying to save money to put into action and that is a Music Industry Seminar to teach Independent Artists and Independent Labels about Networking and Investing in their own career and not wait for a Major Label Deal.
What do you think is the single largest problem faced by the music industry today?
Lack of investment funds seem to be the biggest problem. Since there are only 3 Major Labels (Sony, Universal and Warner) nobody wants to invest their own money to get to their next level in the Music Industry. How do you think it can be resolved? In my opinion, this will continue to be an issue until Independent Artists and Independent Labels realize that they are a Business more so a Brand and nobody is going to invest money in you unless they see you are willing to do what you can on your own.
Your plans for 2017?
My Plans for the remainder of 2017 is to become a Music Supervisor or at least see my name in the credits of a TV Show or Movie as the Music Publisher.
