    #1939- Briana Domenica


    BRIANA DOMENICA. UPDATE, SongU mentor Dallas Gregory manages this artist. "Keep songs coming. I'm planning to meet with her in person mid-July." Looking for a Christmas single to be recorded late summer/early fall for release in November. She will also be filming a video of this single for release, which will coincide with the single release. Briana is a CCM artist, so nothing risqué or off-color will be considered. "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause" needs to be about as risqué as it gets. Think about the pure and essential essence of Christmas as it relates to children, Santa Clause, family, traditions of the Christmas season, and of course the birth of Jesus. Pitch songs with "the feels" and "perfect embodiment" of Christmas. Songs can be any tempo and span the gamut from secular to religious; "Jingle Bells" to "Oh Holy Night".

    #1864- Amurco Music Licensing


    Top 40 Female Pop, Soul, Chillout-House, World Music AMURCO MUSIC LICENSING. Re-Opened for submissions! This is an UK-based licensing company with a catalogue of 70,000+ tracks, offering playlisting and syncing opportunities. They are currently interested in receiving submissions for the following types of music: Current Top 40 Pop (Female), Soul, Chillout/Chill House, and World. Here is a note to us from Joel at Amurco: "Our our deals are completely non-exclusive and are open to artists with a PRO affiliation or without an affiliation at all. This will just determine which areas we will be able to pitch their music to.
    We use the music in our catalogue in two ways, depending on whether the songs are registered to Performing Rights Organization (PRO) or not:

    1) If you are registered with a PRO (e.g. SOCAN, PRS, etc.), then your music would be included in our sync catalogue, which would then be available to our sync-team to pitch for opportunities in TV and Film.

    2) If you are not registered with a PRO, your music would be eligible to be included in our in-store playlists, which are sent out to our clients around the world. Our clients will play the playlists in their stores, and would pay Amurco a fee for each playlist.

    3) If you are registered with an American PRO (ASCAP, BMI or SESAC), you would be eligible for both the sync catalogue and our in-store playlists.

    I look forward to receiving the submissions from SongU members."

    Important Reminder: Songs for submitted to our page for sync licensing should be free and cleared, including any publishing tie-ups from co-writers. If you need sample demo clearance forms send a support form, ATTN: Sara - Clearance Forms.

The SongU.com Pitching Philosophy


To be clear, SongU.com is not a pitching service. Our mission statement has always focused on the entire educational process, not just pitching, as its goal. We believe that honing your craft and making each song the best it can be before putting it out there is ultimately what works in the long run. While there are other sites that strictly focus on pitching, SongU.com only added pitch opportunities (without raising our membership cost) because we believe that learning to pitch songs and having success at it is part of the educational process for our members.

We’re really proud of our members when they have success with their writing, much like any teacher would be who sees their students successes. You can see and read some of their success stories.

Why Can't I Purchase Additional Fast-Track Submissions?


Unlike Street Pitches, we cannot guarantee a yes, no, or maybe response on every song submitted to a Fast-Track pitch guest. For this reason, once your free pitch(es) are used, Fast-Track pitch submissions are closed. Fast-Track pitch guests will let you know if they are interested in your song.

What Are Street Pitches?


This is a guaranteed listen by guest songpluggers, publishers, licensing agents, and other industry pros for their upcoming meetings and projects. You submit your song. They listen. You receive an email to let you know whether or not the guest expresses interest in pitching your song. If so, you will follow-up with each other. And no, SongU.com does not take part in publishing or licensing songs.

What Are Fast-Track And Recurring Pitches?


Pitch songs to guests who are listening for a project with a deadline such as artists, artist managers, and producers. This includes both major and independent projects, in the U.S. and overseas. Ongoing opportunities to industry pros looking for songs on a recurring basis are also available. You submit your song. They listen. If the guest expresses interest in your song, you will receive an email of interest. And no, SongU.com does not take part in publishing or licensing songs.

Note: Fast-Track opportunities are exclusive to Platinum Members. However, Lite Members may use their one free monthly pitch opportunity for any Fast-Track pitch.

Cool Extra: Special Event Pitch


As an additional service these special events give our members a unique chance to be personally selected by hit songwriters to co-write with them (“Golden Ticket”) or by music publishers to write at their companies (“Staff Writer for a Day”), as well as other exciting opportunities.

Take a look at this upcoming opportunity.

Recurring Pitch


Recurring opportunities are on-going Fast-Track pitches to guests who are open to listening on an ongoing basis for particular kinds of songs. This may include independent publishers, producers and music libraries in the U.S. and overseas. You submit your song. They listen. If the guest expresses interest in pitching your song, you will receive an email of interest. And no, SongU.com does not take part in publishing or licensing songs.
