- SONGU SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT! - We're not quite ready for the holiday season to end, so this week we're shining the light on a Christmas song written by Steve_Bryant (member since 2013). Type of Good News: Getting Airplay. Song Title: "Christmas in Sacramento"
Steve's produced version this song is getting radio and TV airplay and promotion in Sacramento! Turns out it's the first Christmas song written about Sacramento. Steve says, "I had no hopes when I produced the full version. I just knew I had to do it, the little voice in my head wouldn't leave me alone. Now, I'm getting gigs and a lot of press and even contact with some Sacramento-based music executives." About SongU, Steve says, "SongU has been an enormous help to me as a songwriter. It’s taken six years, but I am really getting some results. Granted, they are maybes (a lot of them at the moment), but it beats rejection. A “maybe” from a SongU contact lets me know I’m at least getting close to what the industry is looking for." Here are clips from the segments on Good Day Sacramento Part I and Part II .
Listen to more of Steve's songs on his SongU Member Website.
