An Interview w/Aaron Green Co-Founder of Easy Song Licensing.
We preach the benefits of doing cover songs often and thought we should go a bit more in-depth on the topic with our good friend Aaron Green over at Easy Song Licensing.
With this interview, we touch on the different benefits and opportunities available to you with cover songs and also touch on things you need to be aware of before releasing them.
You can also check out our previous interview with Aaron on our YouTube Channel where we break down the basics of music licensing Here.
