Everyone says I'm Great So How Come I'm Not Getting Anywhere?

When I was starting out, I wrote songs and dreamed of "making it". The problem was I didn't know how to get where I wanted to get to. I wanted to write better songs...maybe even hit songs. I wanted to speak to someone one-on-one who actually had record deals and publishing deals...maybe even a Grammy-winning song.
Someone who actually DID it!

After 20 plus years of all of the above including 3 major record deals (RCA, Curb, CBS), a major publishing deal (Warner/Chappell), a Grammy-winning hit and songs in blockbuster movies (American Pie etc.) and TV, I can offer you honesty and experience.
I'll cover everything from song structure to important questions like:
"is this song pitchable for film/tv or more suited for an artist?"

From my 10 years working side by side with the film and tv department of Warner Bros I have much knowledge and experience on what they’re looking for out there!

"What is this song missing?" Is the hook solid"? "Are the first 3 lines strong enough to hold someone's attention?" "Is the bridge more of a chorus than the actual chorus?"

Accepting Indie & Unsigned Artists for Artist Development & Marketing

Whiplash PR & Marketing is accepting submissions for roster consideration for Spring 2018.

Having just celebrated our 20th anniversary, we spearheaded and pioneered the whole indie publicist movement back in 1997, before the indie revolution even started. We genuinely love working with the unsigned artist and band directly. It is very difficult for any band to get national and international press on their own these days. But, having the validation from press in magazines, webzines, blogs, podcasts and being added to playlists will create a national buzz and will help to brand you, your name and music.

WHIPLASH PR is now servicing clients in Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South America, South Korea and USA. A few of the musicians that we have been privileged to work with over the years have been: Sophie B. Hawkins, Jack Conte, Doc Fell & Co., Robbing Johnny, Black Horse Motel, Hot Panda, The Slants, Slightly Stoopid,Suicidal Tendencies, Motion City Soundtrack, The Rustic Overtones, Guster,The Squirel Nut Zippers, Shane Martin, The Ormewoods, Amanda Thorpe, Beth Thornley, Shelita Burke, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Howie Day, Emilie Autumn, The Lumineers, Thousand Foot Krutch, Vienna Teng, Thompson Square, & Gavin DeGraw.

If you feel that you have what is take then please submit your song(s). We do not work with the following genres: Hip Hop & Rap, Jazz, Classical, EDM, Spoken Word. We also do not work with managers.

"How to build a successful band" Career Coaching

Reggie Calloway, Grammy-nominated, multi platinum former leader of Midnight Star, this month answers questions and discusses, "How to build a successful band"

The five time Grammy-nominated Reggie Calloway has always displayed a unique ear for music and trends. It is no surprise that the music pioneer received a Grammy nomination for R&B Songwriter of the Year for the hit song “Casanova” in 1987.

Best known as the founder and leader of one of the most popular Techno-funk bands, Midnight Star, Calloway led the group to international success by writing, producing and arranging a string of top mega #1 hits including, “Operator,” “No Parking On The Dance Floor,” “I Wanna Be Rich” and “Freak-a-zoid.”

One of Calloway’s original compositions entitled, “I’ll Be Good For You,” was featured on N’Sync’s multi-platinum CD, No Strings Attached (highest selling album of the last decade). He has also penned songs for the chart-topping group Levert (“Casanova”), the sultry Teddy Pendergrass (“Joy”), Grammy-winning Gladys Knight (“Love Overboard”) and “Jump Start My Love” for Natalie Cole.

Song Critique by Multi-Platinum Award Winning Songwriter John Capek

Everybody’s a critic. Some have credibility, credits and qualifications. As a songwriter, producer, arranger and player I am on about 100 Million records.

As an educator, I have been a resident lecturer at Berklee; established and founded the Songwriting Department at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto Canada; served on the Board of Directors of the Songwriters Association of Canada and chaired the Education Committee; Lectured at UCLA; conducted seminars for the Australian Performing Rights Society APRA; NSIA in Nashville; The Guild of Songwriters in Denmark and conducted seminars and workshops in every major city in Canada.

Quote from Ralph Murphy, VP ASCAP Nashville:
"A couple of years ago, I was fortunate to be paired with a wonderful melody man who was also a great teacher, John Capek. The Songwriters Association of Canada sent us out on a multicity teaching trip. In watching his approach to craft, I got a sense of how to verbalize what a composer expects from a lyricist..."

Quote from Bonnie Raitt:
I've been a fan of John's music for many years. He's one of the deepest, most talented and soulful writers I know and I find myself listening to his albums for inspiration and pleasure all the time." - Bonnie Raitt

When I critique your song, it is an in-depth educated analysis based on real world concepts. The real world might even be described by the fact that even though I might “really really really” like your song, if you don’t have Tom Hanks lip-syncing it in a video, you might be out of luck.

Beyond that, production values matter. With today’s technology, we don’t just write the song, we write the record.

My objective is to help you create a timeless, iconic accessible anthemic hit song that will be relevant one, two or more generations from now. I want songs to matter.

I believe that great songwriting is the only thing that can save our music culture and our industry. Anthemic songs mark our life journey.

I will help you move forward in your musical journey.

Critique: I know this is a good song, but something's not working

"What is this song missing?" Is the hook solid"? "Are the first 3 lines strong enough to hold someone's attention?" "Is the bridge more of a chorus than the actual chorus?"

More times than not writers have all the ideas and great parts but the set-up may be off. It's like a joke that has a great punch line but the delivery is off and so no one laughs at the right time.

Also, sometimes you've written more than you need. Remember, the best songs seem to be the most simple.

Professional critique of your mix and possible mix

Get a detailed critique of your mix by an award winning professional mixing engineer. In return for your submission fee, I will personally listen to your mix and give you a very detailed critique of your mix, along with helpful hints on how you can improve the quality of your mixes. Plus, if you should decide to hire me to either touch up your existing mix, or mix it again from scratch myself, I will deduct your submission fee from your bill. My time is limited and I'm very selective about the projects I take on for full mixing services, but I will listen to and critique all submissions.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are just looking for someone to give you meaningless praise, or nice quotes for promotional purposes, I'm probably not that guy. I'm here to help people who want to improve their recording & mixing skills. I will take the time to listen through your song several times, and give you honest feedback of what I liked and didn't like and what I think you can do to make it sound even better.

I'll also be happy to provide you with my personal opinion about the song itself, but I'm not a songwriter or performing artist, so take that as just one music lover's opinion. My critique will mostly focus on the technical & creative aspects of the recording, mix, and overall production.

The five time Grammy-nominated Reggie Calloway has always displayed a unique ear for music and trends. It is no surprise that the music pioneer received a Grammy nomination for R&B Songwriter of the Year for the hit song “Casanova” in 1987.

One of Calloway’s original compositions entitled, “I’ll Be Good For You,” was featured on N’Sync’s multi-platinum CD, No Strings Attached (highest selling album of the last decade).

Management/Career Coaching Conversation

I will provide advice and direction to hard-working artists seeking to take the next step in their careers. Many artists have spent years writing and recording their songs, but have spent comparatively little time understanding how to make money from their work. You need knowledge and information to make the right choices and avoid the mistakes that many artists make. With my background in the traditional music business and with new technologies, I can provide experienced insights and detailed responses to questions such as: Do you really need a "label" deal? How do you structure a deal with an investor? Are you ready for a manager or attorney? What are the things to look for in a good manager? What are some of the deal points in agreements that you should be aware of? How do you avoid getting stuck in a bad deal? How do you get a booking agent? Do you need a publishing deal? How do I get my songs licensed in TV shows, movies and commercials? You can spend hundred of hours reading books and blogs about the music industry, or you can have a direct communication with someone with more than 20 years of experience signing artists to major and independent record and publishing deals, with advice tailored to your exact needs. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
