    #1589 - Staff Writer for a Day! sdb music group


    Staff Writer for a Day! With sdb music group And Hit Songwriter Co-write! This is an exclusive opportunity to be selected by Sherrill Blackman, Owner and Creative Director of sdb music group, for a chance to find out what it's like to be a professional staff songwriter for a day. This includes a meeting with Sherrill and a three-hour mentor co-write session with hit songwriter, Joie Scott! About our guests. Here's how it works:

    WHAT TO SUBMIT: Sherrill suggests that you submit songs with deep meaningful lyrics with contemporary fresh melodies. He is open and able to hear great songs in ANY style except Rap, Heavy Metal, or Southern Gospel

    Sherrill will listen to ALL the songs submitted. He will narrow the field down to his top "contenders." From this field, Sherrill will select ONE writer to win "Staff Writer for the Day!" Bonus: He will also be listening for songs to pitch and may express interest in pitching any of the contender songs.

    All contender songs will receive a special "Rising Star" award from SongU.com.

    First, place your special event song (MP3 and typed lyric) in your Song Locker. Note: For this event DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR NAME on the lyric sheet. The pitch should be anonymous.

    Permitted for this event: Clean worktapes (no background noise or distractions); simple guitar or piano/vocal demos; and full professional-sounding demos. No lyric-only submissions allowed.

    In Pitching area submit your special event song(s) from your Song Locker drop down menu to this pitch opportunity using SongU credits.

    In the "Optional Note for Pitch Guest" area, please let Sherrill know the following information: either a) I wrote this song music/lyric alone; b) I co-wrote this song providing mostly the lyric; c) I co-wrote this song providing mostly the music; d) My collaborator and I both contributed equally to the lyric and music of this song.

    There is no limit to the number of songs you may submit.

    How will you know if you are a contender? Make sure your emails from SongU.com are white-listed. You will receive an email from SongU.com when Sherrill has listened letting you know if he has passed on your song or if you are in the field of contenders to win the Staff Writer for a Day competition and hit songwriter co-write. Sherrill may also express interest in pitching some of the contenders' songs.

    Winner Selection: There will be "BIG REVEAL" session in the SongU e-classroom scheduled after the final submission deadline. This session adds an important educational component to the event in which Sherrill will discuss his listening process, why certain songs caught his attention, and answer questions from the participants. At this session, he will reveal which songs he is interested in pitching, and finally who he has selected as the Staff Writer for a Day! Keep an eye on the announcements area and the instructor-led course schedule after the song submission deadline for date of SPEC-415 The Big Reveal! This session will be recorded and a transcript will be available on SongU.com.

    Follow-up for Winner: The date and time of your Staff Writer for a Day 3-hour Co-Write session will be scheduled between you and sdb music group. This is your opportunity to walk through the industry doors and get noticed. If you cannot travel to meet the guest for the session, you also have the option of a 3-hour Skype or Virtual Writer's Room session instead.

    All writers submitting to this opportunity should first read and agree to the Staff Writer For A Day! Terms

    #1593 - New Major Network Television Show


    QUICK PITCH! Street Pitch guest, N.P. is looking for Pop or Singer/Songwriter songs for a new network TV Show. Think shows like 'THIS IS US’, ‘PARENTHOOD’ and 'RISE’ meets both the personal and professional drama/energy of 'GOOD WIFE’, 'HILL ST BLUES' or 'NYPD BLUE'. Song has to have heart and that BIG, driving emotion!! Family (real or group of friends) saves all. Song has to have A BIG ENDING! Male or female. Pop or singer/songwriter (NO COUNTRY songs).

    As usual, SONGS SUBMITTED HAVE TO BE CLEARED FOR SYNCH LICENSING as per the following important 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.
    - All submissions must be master/broadcast quality recordings. 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/synch 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.

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.

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.
