Song Critiques from Eddie Caldwell Founder of Music Of the Sea
Please submit your songs for an unbiased critique. I am Eddie Caldwell Founder and CEO for Music Of The Sea, music publishing and licensing company based out of Chicago. I work on a daily basis with television networks, record labels, publishers, advertising agencies, film production companies, directors, and music supervisors. We place songs on a weekly basis.
I have deals with CBS Television, Omnicom, Bunim Murray, Getty images, Universal, Music World Entertainment, Microsoft, etc.
We also have personal relationships with A&R people from Warner Bros, Universal, Def Jam, Interscope, Atlantic, EMI, etc. We also have personal relationships with the top Music Supervisors in the world. Weinstein Co, Dimension Films, Viacom,etc.
I'll critique your song and let you know whether your song needs more work, whether it's great for source music, feature music, advertising, retail, whether it needs more punch, how it feels sonically, would be great for another artist to sing, etc. Many times a song may not be a hit commercially, but it could be a hit for films, TV, advertising, etc.
I'll provide critique for all genres. Pop, Rap, R&B, Soul, Neo Soul, Country, Ambient, Classical, Rock, EDM, House, Lounge/Chillout, Dubstep, Adult Contemporary, Jazz, World, Latin, etc.
There may even be an opportunity for me to work your songs with my company Music Of The Sea.
Why the higher than average submission fee?
Often we hear music that doesn’t make the final cut for a particular opportunity but we go ahead and select the song anyway because we believe the song is appropriate for other opportunities we’re working on. Here at Music of The Sea, we fill dozens of sync requests every week. We don’t have time to listen to everything so the higher submission fee tends to discourage all but the best - and we sign a lot of music and we place almost all of it.
We only offer one deal and the terms are the same for everyone, so don’t submit if you’re seeking another type of deal. If we select your song, you give us exclusive rights to the song for 3 years. If after three years we haven’t licensed your song, the rights revert back to you. If we do license your song, we share in the revenue. Often, if we love the song we hear and want to work with you we will also have interest in hearing other songs in your catalog and possibly doing a broader deal.
