It seems odd when I type it out, but Karsten and I couldn’t be happier that we’ve just signed away the publishing rights (and future publishing royalties!) to our calypso-pop-reggae song “Mango Sun.” (Visit http://www.honeybowtie.com/songs/index.html if you want to hear it — it’s worth it for the vocals alone, wonderfully performed by the popular Chicago-based reggae singer Rocket.) The song’s new publisher hopes to find a place for it in the European market, where calypso and reggae are fairly popular.
After spending the past few years focused on writing country-pop songs, it’s fun to have interest in one of our slightly older songs from another genre.
So hey, next time you’re in Germany or whatever, listen for the sounds of “Mango Sun,” and if you hear any cha-ching in the background, that’ll be us cashing our itty bitty royalty check. 🙂
