Pitch to Publisher. These words are music to the ears of inspriing songwriters.
Fair warning … make sure the publisher is allowing “Pitches to Publisher” before any attempts are made to pitch to a publisher. Most publishers will never take an unsolicited Pitch. The Song Ranch, Nashville won’t. Publishers have to be very strict with this rule, or we would all be overrun with songs and lawsuits. You can be sure that if you try it anyway, your song will be trashed and never opened. If you try to send it certified, it too will never be signed for and sent back. Free advice ya’ll…don’t send an unsolicited song! Don’t send it to the publisher, don’t send it to the producer, don’t send it to the record company, and don’t send it to the artist.
The Song Ranch, Nashville, offers several ways to get your Hit Song heard. Either through our Song Critique or our, always going, Song Contest. You may say, “I’ve already had my song critiqued by my association membership.” That’s cool, but so what? Song critiques should be treated like a doctor’s opinion. Second, third, fourth opinions are needed. You are looking for a publisher to take your song, spend their money on it recording a top notch demo and pitching it to artist and records companies. Then you expect the record companies to start spending their money on co-writing, arranging, recording, producing, cutting, releasing, and LOTS of marketing and radio. There is no limit to the money spent by the industry to get your Hit Song to the ears and hands of the public. You shouldn’t limit yourself to one opinion. For you to get your Hit Song, published, pitched, on hold, and eventually cut and released, you have to spend time and money of your own. That’s business!
Here’s the really good news. The Song Ranch, Nashville, will come to your town, for a face to face opportunity to Pitch to Publisher. All you need to do is get with your songwriters in your area and get a close number of participants that would participate in this extraordinary opportunity. We need at least 20 songwriters (no limit after 20). We just need to know the close amount for time needed. This is a completely free event.
We, The Song Ranch, Nashville, know that Nashville is packed with Big Hit Songs and Songwriters. We have some of those. We need more. We, The Song Ranch, Nashville, also know that, there are more Big Hit Songs and Songwriters around the world. We know that these songwriters have jobs, families, homes, and solid citizenship that will not allow them to pack up and move to Nashville (as if that is all it takes). Email, call, or write us with your information, and we will come. We will have single song contracts with us. It’s, The Song Ranch, Nashville’s wish to sign new Hit Songs and songwriters at these events. Have your Hit Songs ready to go. Yes or No is all we’ll be able to say. You don’t need a big production of the song, but it must be on tape or CD. No live performance, unless agreed before appointment date is confirmed.
Yee-haw! Let’s get started!
