Deep Flow Studios starts music publishing branch
This past year was a big one for Deep Flow Studios.
In case you haven't heard of Deep Flow, it's kind of an umbrella for a couple of different ventures: Deep Flow Radio, Deep Flow TV, Deep Flow event productions and Deep Flow recording studios.
Founder Amotion (pictured) moved the multitiered music business into a much larger new building in South Baltimore, and major TV networks expressed interest in picking up Deep Flow TV.
Now, Amotion is getting into the music publishing business. That's where the real money is these days -- selling songs to movies, commercials and TV shows ...
"The connection I made with the NYC music supervisior who handles dozens of major films a year is phenomenal, so once all my paperwork's taken care of, within the next month we'll be shopping music for the next movie and publishing deal," she wrote in an email.
Instead of signing artists, Deep Flow is strictly taking single track submissions only. Amotion made it clear in her email that she didn't want people to send Deep Flow CDs and expect to get signed to the publishing company.
So if you're in the neighborhood (211 E. Patapsco Ave.), drop by Deep Flow and talk to Amotion. She'll fill you in on all the details. Believe me, there's a lot of money to be made through publishing with very few strings attached.
I hope Deep Flow can carve out a niche of its own and further help put Baltimore's hip-hop on the map. This is definitely the way to do it.
