What does a musician do when the virus has caused the market to be as good as dead? In my case it’s about thinking of other ways of using my music in a way that has a purpose. In this case a marketing purpose – a promo video with backing music for authors. 

Better put, a creative marketing video for authors about to launch their new book, or wish to give a bit of extra oomph to a book they already have out there. For example, the one below I made for MIKE STEEDEN’S  latest book.

The Blue-Eyed Cat Promo Video from Mike Steeden on Vimeo.

Basically, all I need from an author is the book front cover and a script, say, of the book’s blurb along with audio, chosen by the author, in the form of a song or instrumental from my easy to access portfolio on BANDCAMP – all I’ll need is the song title. This way you don’t have to go paying a fortune for use of a musician’s copyright as you would if, say, you wanted background music from someone you’ve heard on Spotify or such like.

Anyhow, from that collection of book cover, author’s words and my music I can put the lot together into a video for just £35. Should an author want an original instrumental to match the mood of the book and own that piece of music for themselves then the fee is £100 simply because I’d have to compose, produce and mix and the masterpiece.

If you’re interested you can email me on this link PROMO VIDEOS FOR AUTHORS  or via the link at the top of the blog.

Here’s another one I also made earlier, again trying them out on MIKE STEEDEN

Lastly, if you ever require sound for a marketing video you are making yourself or commissioning elsewhere should you find anything from my music portfolio that fits the bill or if you want me to create a bespoke composition just for you then let me know. For a inexpensive fee, to be agreed, I’d be happy to help out.

As ever, if any poets out there are interested in having their poems turned into songs then click here to check it out: POETRY TO SONG

If you are looking for all my other music then you’ll find it to download on BANDCAMP or you can stream and/or make a playlist of it on SPOTIFY

    1. Thank you, Maria. I’d be pleased to work with you. I’ve got links to my ‘PROMO-VIDEO FOR AUTHORS’ and ‘YOUR POETRY TO SONG’ links on the top line of all my blog posts. You can either use one of those to contact me or alternatively via my email at
      Just let me know what you want and I’ll happily get to work. Thanks again ~ George


      1. Do you follow James Cudney of This is My Truth Now. He has written several books and reviews many more. He might be a person who coldl put you in touch with authors.

      2. Thanks Anne. I just realized I follow him but WP don’t ever put his posts on my Reader – I think a lot of people are having trouble with that. I’ll pay him a visit, Thanks again ~ George

      3. I guess the worse thing is that other bloggers might think Ie/we’ve deliberately ignored them. I guess I should contact WP but if they can’t resolve it for you I imagine the same would apply to me. Annoying, for sure ~ George


  1. Great idea! I saw this on TOF’s blog.
    I’m busy on Art Gowns right now, as you know. However, when I go back to posting street art on my GLAM blog, I’ll give you a shout out there. May I use the promo you did on the Blue-Eyed Cat? I did a bit on the book so can link things/theme up somehow.
    Best to you, and be well!

  4. What a brilliant idea. I may well take you up on your offer. I have a new book coming out soon and a previously published one I’m relaunching. I’ll have a browse in your music files and see if anything suits.
