Have you heard of The Fray or Snow Patrol??
Chances are you have because of a show called Grey’s Anatomy. You may not have watched the show yourself, but you probably did hear the song on radio or you’ve seen the videos. A major reason those bands ended up on commercial radio was because of the popularity of the show (Snow Patrol did have minor hits from their last album) .
The person behind the music is Alexandra Patsavas, the music supervisor who finds the music for Grey’s Anatomy and a host of other TV shows. I recently found a CNBC interview with her on YouTube which you can find below.
She is becoming a strong presence in the music industry, she loves independent bands, and she seems very humble.
