    Seeking Music For Your Lyrics? We continue to receive rave reviews for SongU demo partner CHAS EVANS's "Music For My Lyrics." Recently, Rhonda Pisanello (AB, Canada), told us, 'Chas is a great guy. He responded almost right away, had a melody draft within 24 hours for approval, made a few changes for me, was open to all ideas. Debbie (Zavitson, SU Mentor Publisher) thought the production was great very suited to the song.' Last week, veteran SU member, Ditalian Cole [MS, U.S.), emailed, 'I HIGHLY recommend Chas! I felt that he's not just trying to get money out of me and really cares if the song is great or not. He has no problem with all my rewriting and us emailing back and forth. I will definitely work with Chas again in the future!' Find our demo partners page in the Song Locker menu.

    General 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. Add a work tape and/or lyric to your backpack with a note to the instructor. Listen later to the transcript. Also, look for our GMT-friendly meetings (between 1-3 pm EST) during the week and on Saturdays for meetings that may fit your "live" schedule.

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!.
