I agree. I ended Chucky and the Cyclones 100% cover band in 1994, wrote 4 sets of original modern rockabilly, played originals exclusively for 10 years, and booked all over the U.S. with the Musicians’ Guide to Touring and Promotion. Best decision I ever made. My originals have established me in synch licensing. When asked for covers I simply said “We don’t know any.”https://open.spotify.com/artist/11m1eWZOcuGHyNnE2m32SB
Thanks Chuck! I like that strategy. And I bet it goes over well. 🙂
