  1. Feedback in September! In addition to our scheduled online song feedback courses (FDBK), many of our members enjoy an "asynchronous" rapport in the form of written feedback, with their coaches. Welcome to our new Coach #12807! This coach has a background both as a performing songwriter and a seasoned A&R executive at a major record label. He is comfortable providing feedback in a wide variety of genres and comes with high praise from several of our former and current mentors.

    Pitches for Direct Sync Licensing Deals & More. SongU mentor and music publisher, Bob Dellaposta, has listed several new opportunities for non-exclusive licensing deals for playlists in malls, retail stores, bars, night clubs, and restaurants all over the world. See details in Fast Track Pitches. Also, check out some brand new mid-month listings Street Pitches by Dallas Gregory. Keep an eye out here for details on the upcoming Special Event Pitch coming soon.

    Registration Reminders. You may have 2 Active FDBK courses at one time, but can add a 3rd if there is still an open spot 24 hours before a course starts. Check your live Course schedule in case someone cancels during the week and a seat opens up. TO ALL, please delete your course from your Active courses page if you are not going to attend and have no song in your backpack. Thank you. International members, if there are any FDBK sessions you can not be present at due to a time-zone challenge, you can register to attend the session anyway. Just be sure to add your work-tape and/or lyric to your backpack and a note to the instructor for feedback on the recorded transcript. Also, be sure to look for our GMT-friendly meetings (between 1-3pm EST) during the week and on Saturdays for meetings that may fit your "live" schedule.

Pitch #1968


HOLIDAY ORIGINALS & COVER SONGS FOR FILM. It's our favorite time of the year! Street Pitch guest, N.P. is thick in the Hallmark and Lifetime movie production season. So we need lots of fun, fresh, upbeat originals and unique versions of classic public domain songs. Clean, family-friendly lyrics about love, friendship, togetherness, family, good times, etc. Genres: Pop, Singer-songwriter, Acoustic Pop, Soul, R&B. Female vocals have an edge, but male vocals are welcome. Remember these films can have years of reruns which equals performance royalties.
Songwriters, important:

SONGS SUBMITTED HAVE TO BE CLEARED FOR SYNC LICENSING as per the following guidelines (no exceptions):
- You must own both your master (recordings) and 100% of your synchronization (publishing). If you do not...
- Then, all master owners, co-writer(s) or co-publisher(s), must sign our licensing agreement as well.
- Songs must be CLEARED: meaning if you have paid musicians and/or singers including background vocalists, you must have a signed 'work for hire' OR RELEASE form for each person involved in making your recording so that they have no further claim to the song. Please note, the producer who produced your recording should be able to help you acquire a work for hire agreement or release, however in many cases there may be a fee involved particularly if the recording was purchased as a demo. No writers signed with major publishing companies with major administration deals.
- Submissions must be MASTER/BROADCAST QUALITY recordings. If we express interest, you will need to supply us with a mastered copy of both the song AND an instrumental track.

PITCH FOLLOW-UP: If this guest expresses interest in your song you will be asked to sign an agreement for this project only (non-exclusive); with a 50%/50% split for both the master/sync licenses. Will not take publishing of the song so the publisher/writers will get all the performance income. If there is no upfront licensing fee, the 'guest' will take 50% of the publishing income for this placement only. The 'guest' will not take ownership of the copyright.

Got Good News? Tell us all about it!.
