audiences. A lot of them know me from bigger projects,” said Bullock, who has had a nice run of having his songs placed in TV shows like “Breaking Bad” and “The Handmaiden’s Tale” and movies like Robert Downey Jr.’s film “Dr. Doolittle.” “I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles writing for movies

and television,” said Bullock, adding he has been working with a team for the past eight years who help his songs get placed in movies and television.
