  1. New FDBK Registration Policy Begins. While registration will continue to be limited to 2 active courses at a time, you will now be able to add an additional active course if there is still an open spot 24 hours before the class starts. So, keep checking back in case someone cancels during the week and a seat opens up. To all, PLEASE, if you have already registered for a course, but you are not going to be able to attend and do not have a song and note loaded in your backpack, be respectful of your mentors and fellow songwriters by deleting the course from your Active courses page so someone else can fill the seat. Thank you.

    A Reminder to Our International Members. All "live" instructor-led sessions and feedback (FDBK) workshops meet at a specific time and are recorded so you can watch and listen to it at a more convenient hour. Keep an eye out for special GMT-friendly meetings (between 1-3pm EST) during the week and on Saturdays each month for meetings that may fit your schedule. However, if you can not be present at a FDBK session 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. Member Feedback From Peter C. (Australia): "Because I live in Australia I couldn't attend the live session [FDBK 205] but being able to view the transcript and video afterwards was great. Alan gave me detailed feedback for my song. Along with others in the class he gave many suggestions that'll help me craft a better song. I value his knowledge and expertise in the songwriting business and I'm so thankful and appreciative for his help."

Pitch #1946


LOVE SONGS FOR CABLE NETWORK FILM. Street Pitch guest, N.P., is seeking female Pop/Indie Pop love songs for a movie that centers around mystery and romance. Must be FEMALE VOCALS AND FULLY PRODUCED - not an acoustic guitar song. References:
"Love Song" Sara Bareilles
"Suddenly I See" KT Tunstall
"Good Old Days" Pink
"Break My Heart" Dua Lipa

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!.
