    #1976- Special Event! Staff Writer For a Day with WinSongs Music


    Staff Writer For a Day with WinSongs Music! This is an exclusive opportunity to be selected by Kirby Smith, Creative Director of WinSongs Music Publishing, for a chance to find out what it's like to be a professional staff songwriter for a day. This includes a meeting with Kirby and a CO-WRITING SESSION with Kirby's chosen hit songwriter! Here's how it works:

    HOW IT WORKS: Kirby will listen to ALL the songs submitted. She will narrow the field down to her top "contenders." All contender songs will receive a special Rising Star Award from SongU.com. From this field, Kirby will select ONE writer to win "Staff Writer for the Day!" Bonus: She will also be listening for songs to pitch and may express interest in pitching any of the Rising Star contender songs. Please be aware that our guest often listens several times through to a group of songs before reaching a decision. Because of this you may receive your email notice of multiple songs in quick succession after the decision has been reached.

    WHAT TO SUBMIT: Kirby is an avid lover of all genres of music and is open and able to hear great songs in any style for consideration EXCEPT Bluegrass or Heavy Metal. For this event, Lyrics-Only are allowed. There is no limit to the number of songs you may submit.

    QUALITY OF DEMOS: Clean worktapes (no background noise or distractions); simple guitar or piano/vocal demos; and full professional-sounding demos will be accepted.

    SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: First, make sure to place your special event song (MP3 and typed lyrics) in your Song Locker. Note: For is event DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR NAME on the lyric sheet. The pitch should be anonymous. In the "Note for Pitch Guest" area, please let our guest 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.

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

    How will you know if you are a contender? Make sure your emails from SongU.com are not being sent to your junk/spam folder. You will receive an email from SongU.com when Kirby has listened letting you know if she 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. Kirby 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 Kirby will discuss her listening process, why certain songs caught her attention, and answer questions from the participants. At this session, she will reveal which songs she is interested in pitching, and finally who she 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-430 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 WinSongs Music. This is your opportunity to walk through the industry doors and get noticed. If you cannot travel to meet the guest for the session within a year selection date, you also have the option of a 3-hour Skype or Virtual Writer's Room session instead.

    All writers submitting should first read the Staffwriter For A Day Terms

    SONGS SUBMITTED HAVE TO BE CLEARED FOR SYNC LICENSING as per the following guidelines (no exceptions):

    - 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.

Will not take publishing of the song so the publisher/writers will get all the performance income.

We are attempting to re-energize the duet genre as currently it is dying a painfully slow death from an overdose of Nashville melancholy." In studio February 2022.

    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.

    #1644- 60's-70's Masters (ONGOING)


    SongU.com's own publisher guru, Bob Dellaposta, is looking for some very specific material from some of our more "mature" members: 60's/70's MASTERS for his My Three Kids Music Library. Seeking AUTHENTIC 1960's and 1970's songs for 50/50 non-exclusive licensing to movies, television and commercials. Any genre, male or female, instrumentals, old school Memphis R&B, 60's rock and roll, Latin, jazz, etc. Male or female or groups, with horns or without, authentic vocals. Old or unknown artist are welcome, party songs, festival, dance. NOTE: In your notes, you must MARK THE YEAR THE SONG WAS RELEASED OR DEMOED and if it was released on a label.
    OTHER IMPORTANT INFO: You must control the master/demo and publishing to submit. Please include the name of the artist, the writers names and performance rights organization they are affiliated with as well as the publishing company. Songs must be recorded in the 60's or 70's please include date of recording. Masters and demos are good as long as they used 60's and 70's technology available at the time. We are not looking for contemporary covers or contemporary demos.





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.

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.
