new How To Make Your Songs Ready For Prime Time!
submission price: $30.00

How To Make Your Songs Ready For Prime Time!

I have been in the room so many times over the years when a music manager, a publisher, a producer, or a record company executive listened to someone’s song. Typically, within the first 30 - 45 seconds, the determination is definitively made as to whether it is a great song or not.

And that shouldn’t be very surprising. Literary agents do the same thing with manuscripts, and actors do the same thing with scripts. It has to connect with them immediately. They know what they are looking for, and their time is precious to them.

I have seen songwriters who seem to have potential, not hit the bar. Something is just missing. Their songs just not yet ready for prime time.

I would like to help you get there.

When I receive your song I will typically listen to it that same day, and respond very soon back to you.

I will give you back an extremely comprehensive evaluation/critique of your song, addressing the chord structure, the melody, the lyrics, the structure, the production, and the overall combination of them all.

All with the encouragement you need so that can make your writing better. And then we will follow up with a ‘conversation’ in Xray where you can respond and ask any questions you desire.

And of course, if your song sounds like a hit, I will tell you that, and I can possibly help hook you up with someone I know who can help your career, like a music supervisor, or a music marketing expert.

I have had a number of opportunity listings on Music Xray, and the songwriters were very blown away with the detail of the review I gave back.

I was a production team member for both Nile Rodgers and Todd Rundgren, working on records for artists like David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Madonna, Jeff Beck, Meatloaf, Cheap Trick and The B-52’s. As a producer I have done records with Dr. John, Levon Helm (The Band), Kate Pierson (B-52’s), John Sebastian (Lovin’ Spoonful) and Mick Ronson, and as a composer I have written music for films & TV shows including the theme for the Olympic broadcast on ABC. I was also a music producer on Saturday Night Live for a number of seasons. As a songwriter I have collaborated with songwriters like Chip Taylor (who wrote classic songs like Wild Thing & Angel Of The Morning) and Jules Shear (who wrote If She Knew What She Wants for The Bangles & All Through The Night for Cyndi Lauper).

Here are some quotes from songwriters who I have previously done song reviews for:

"Now I finally know why everyone passes on my songs. Thanks for giving your time and expertise - I see a bigger picture now!"

"Wow - for the cost of a tank gas or a pizza and a beer - I finally learned all about what I was doing wrong. You are so super encouraging and inspired me to write better songs in a way that will impress music people who hear them."

Land a Featured Interview on Independent Music Blog Keep Walking Music

Keep Walking Music is an independent music blog formed in October 2011 by Ben Ali. Dedicated to discovering and featuring exceptional artists that we feel deserve a platform in the public eye.

Our primary task is to show the public, the impressive work and the dedication of promising artists, teeming with immense talents. Indeed, to date, we have managed to establish a finding that proves that the best music is often produced by artists still unknown to the public, because they engage much more than celebrities.

Professional Songwriting/Production Critique from Savvy Giersch

Everything I've ever achieved musically, whether it's landing a tv placement, or getting signed to my publisher, I owe a big part to the guidance of mentors. I know from personal experience that sometimes a critique can take a good song and make it a great one.

I would love to listen to your music and provide some real-world feedback. Though I won't do any sugar-coating, know that I will listen carefully and respectfully. To me, there is nothing better than a well-crafted song and hats off to you for sharing a bit of yourself. :-) Excited to hear it!

Savvy Giersch studied songwriting at Berklee College of Music and is now a published songwriter at Round Hill Music. She has achieved success with Rebecca Stella's number one song "Give Me That O", Noah Schnacky's debut single "Miami to LA", and many other various independent projects. She has had multiple placements in shows on ABC, CBS, and Bravo.

Professional Songwriter and Publisher will Analyze your Songs

As a writer for Gloria Gaynor, D:Ream, Taja Seville and many others I understand what makes a HIT song. As a publisher I also know what does not make a HIT song and that is because I have also had many songs that just didn't get picked. Why? Well by analyzing them afterward I realized where I (or my writers) had gone wrong - too long, too slow, cheap words, or trying to be too clever. There's a million reasons but no excuses. Let me hear your song and I will give you an honest, and I mean brutally honest (but fair) critique of your work.
