Jure Jerebic Music
Wow, what a year. One of the stranger years for sure, but luckily not all of it has been bad, hopefully there has been some good in it for you as well. There have been quite a few good things in 2020 for me personally, I’ll name a few in this short year recap.
#1: Usage of my music in TV productions. In the first half of 2020, the amount of usage of my music in various TV shows and other productions has grown exponentially since 2019. I really only started seriously writing for film and TV at the start of 2019, so I was hoping that this would happen. Many of you know this is a long term process, and I’ve seen it now first hand as well. In the second half of 2020, the amount of placements has more than doubled compared to the first half, according to TuneSat. Actual numbers will be revealed in 2021, but it’s a good approximation of where things are. I have also received my first royalty checks from my PRO’s, which was a nice breaking point as well. Needless to say I’m very happy with the results and am very much looking forward to 2021 and to see what it holds.
#2: 60 new full tracks written and out in the media industry. Compared to 55 in 2019 this has also been a bit of a growth that I’m happy with. Percentage of acceptance has been again pretty much 100%, meaning not a single track was denied, at most there was one revision on a track here or there, but that’s pretty much it. I’m extremely grateful to have Timothy as my partner in everything I do in music, and I could not achieve these results without him. I’m also very thankful to be working with such amazing publishers that work hard to get the music used in various productions.
#3: New relationships. In both personal and professional life, I have been very lucky to meet new people that have added happiness and support in pretty much everything I do. In 2020, one of my goals is to actively surround myself (hopefully in person) with more amazing people that will push my limits even further and help me grow as a composer and as a person. Because as they say, you get like the people you’re with.
#4: New habits. I’ve started a few new habits this year such as listening to audiobooks every day, learning more about investing or even just adding more greens to my nutrition. I know that in the long term, these habits will pay off.
I think I’ve rambled on for long enough. I really appreciate you taking the time to read this year recap. I you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via the contact form or social media, and let’s talk. I sincerely hope that 2020 has not been too hard for you and that it provided you with many great moments, and I know for sure that we are all very much looking forward to 2021.
A very happy new year!
