This post is about getting your song played on TV, as it happened recently to this very young and refreshingly original sounding band,”Forgotten Aclipse”.

The band just had one of their original songs picked up for a scene in the reality psycho show on VH1 “COUPLES THERAPY” – this link leads directly to the full episode that features the song at about 23:50.

So what can you learn from the success of this unknown band for your own music marketing?

1. Write good music and lyrics that come from the heart and touch other people.

2. Don’t get too hung up on getting everything perfect as far as music production is concerned. “Done is better than perfect!”

3. Be persistent when you approach key influencers who you know who may have connections.

4. Don’t give up. No matter if you get an early break like these guys, or if it takes a little longer, the most important thing is that you create and put out your stuff to the world.

You can contact the band and learn more about them on their website: Forgotten Aclipse
