No, any unused pitches do not accumulate or roll over.
There are no gatekeepers between your songs and the music industry guests.
For all pitches at SongU.com, your song gets heard directly by the
guest songpluggers, publishers, licensing agents, and other industry pros
for the listed projects.
We’ve designed our Street pitch opportunities to connect members with a
few dedicated publishers, song pluggers and licensing agents looking for
specific projects in order to mimic how almost every publishing company works. The
truth is, unless you’re writing with the artist or producer, this is still a
primary mode for “outside” songwriters to get a cut. It’s certainly better
to have a plugger who can play the song for the A&R team, the producer, the
manager and/or the artist rather than strictly have an A&R rep on who might
not hear the song or have the final say in the decision making process. We also
make direct connections to independent artists who are listening for their
own projects. We’re really proud of our members' success (opens in a new window)
with their writing, much like any teacher would be who sees
their students successes.
For both Street Pitches and Special Event pitches you will receive an email notification
after the guest listens indicating whether or not they are interested in your song.
Fast-Track pitches are a more typical music industry pitch where your songs
will be sent directly to
the guest, but you will only be notified if the guest expresses interest in your song.
Prior to seeing the listings, you must first take a short DIY
course called “GEN 120 Mandatory Pitching Orientation”. It is in your
Course Activity area. Be sure to mark the course as complete when you have finished it.
No. All songs submitted need to be in mp3 format which is the standard format
for pitching songs via the Internet. We do not accept mail-in CD’s, WMA files,
or email attachments. Find more info in the DIY course "GEN 110 Preparing
Your Audio for SongU.com."
It depends on what your "work tape" sounds like. For pitching purposes, your tracks and vocals must
be professional sounding quality, competitive with industry standards,
whether from a home studio or outside studio.
Simple professional sounding guitar or piano vocals are permissible.
As is standard in the music industry, for pitching purposes, all pitch submissions must be a complete song – music and lyrics.
The only exception are Special Event pitch opportunities which will specify if
a lyric-only is allowed. Of course, lyric-only submissions are fine for Song Evaluations and Song Feedback Courses.
Yes. If you feel the song is well-suited for more than one opportunity, then feel free to pitch it to around
and see what happens. If you receive multiple inquiries on the song, be sure to let all the parties know
so they don’t get surprised down the road. At the point someone wants to work your song exclusively or you are
offered an exclusive contract, you will usually want to stop pitching to other opportunities.
