G Putnam Music, a start-up songwriting company based in Normal, will have their song “That’s Tough” featured on the season three premiere of “Roswell, New Mexico” on Monday, July 26, on The CW.
Since forming their team, GPM has spent several hours in the studio, on the phone, in interviews and meetings. After months of hard work, they finally landed their first major opportunity in the industry.
“We are thrilled, of course, but few know the work and costs involved. And the persistence. The process was protracted, exciting at times and inspirational in the end,” GPM owner Gregory D. Putnam said.
The vocals on “That’s Tough” are sung by Zach Linley, who is originally from Mansfield but now lives in the Dallas area. Linley has his own band called Zach Linley & the Rebel Daredevils, but continues to work with GPM when he can.
GPM sent the song to a West Coast company, Music Supervisor, which Putnam learned about from training on writing sync music.
