WELCOME DECEMBER! Sending you wishes of hope, peace, joy, and musical inspiration throughout this holiday season!

Quote to Inspire. "Someday at Christmas man will not fail, hate will be gone and love will prevail, Someday a new world that we can start with hope in every heart. " -- songwriters R. Miller/B. Wells, a hit for Stevie Wonder in 1967 and Lizzo in 2022 (P.S. it's an AAA song form)

  1. Upcoming Holiday Schedule. The live Instructor-Led Feedback & Mentoring courses (FDBK) will be on break between December 22nd and January 4th. DIY & Webcast courses are available 24/7 as always for a creative boost and song craft refresher in music, lyrics, production, commercial songwriting, and more! Also, a reminder that our coaches may have a slower than usual turn-around time due to holiday travel and activities.

    Treat Yourself to a Private Feedback and Mentoring Session this Season! Did you know that you can book private 30 and 60-minute consultations with many of our feedback instructors and pitch guests? Here's what SU Member Pat Kelley had to say about his recent 60-minute meeting with mentor Dallas Gregory, "There is not enough space here to explain what a great session I had with Dallas. His years of experience and insight into songwriting is incredible." SongU members have expressed similar sentiments about ALL our fabulous SongU mentors. Go to the Private Sessions link in your Activity area to book your one-to-one meeting time!

    Submissions Open for the December Spotlight Playlist Challenge! Hopeful or Heartbreaking Holiday Songs. SongU members, your challenge is to write an original holiday-themed song of WORLD HOPE & PEACE -or- of BLUE, SAD, HEARTBREAKING holidays. Avoid cliched use of snowmen, Santa, carols, sleigh bells, etc. Think melancholy songs like Elvis' "Blue Christmas," or ones with a hopeful worldwide message like Amy Grant's "Grownup Christmas Wish," or heavy and real like The Handsome Family's "Only So Much Wine." Post your song under the prompt pinned at the top of the SongU Facebook page from now until December 25th.

    General Registration Reminders. You may have 2 Active Live Song Feedback courses (FDBK) 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 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. 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. Thanks

Pitch #2091


LINDSAY ELL . Extended! Still looking. Street Pitch guest, J.N., veteran independent songplugger who has generated income for SongU members is seeking songs for BBR/BMG artist Lindsey Ell. Listening for quality songs in the contemporary country genre for her next album. Think songs that have a lot of emotional strength, with lyrics that are conversational and vulnerable and oozing with heartfelt authenticity. Can also have celebratory themes or feel-good qualities, but make sure the lyrics have memorable phrases and perhaps even surprising ones. She's also a great guitarist so cool chord progressions that are not the standard I, IV, V would be extra credit. PITCH FOLLOW-UP: If this guest expresses interest in your song they will pitch it with the understanding that you will be asked to sign a single song agreement with the publishing company if there is interest in the song.
