Both are the same.
Located in the heart of Music Row, Nashville, TN, The Song Ranch, Nashville, as other music business professionals around us, have first hand information and connections on who is looking for songs, what kind of songs they are looking for, and when they plan on that next recording session. Once that Hit Song is ready, timing is most important!
Living and working in Nashville and around Music Row, offers us and you an incredible experience like nowhere else when pursuing opportunity in the music business. It is very common to be at a store, post office, restaurant…anywhere in town and bump into producers, A&R reps, band members, and the artist themselves. Any kind of an encounter can be a great connection and opportunity.
Our song plugging and pitching practice will be just like the other professional pluggers and pitchers. That means, we will follow strict rules and recommendations required by the producers and record labels, when soliciting our clients songs to them. Knowing the day and time the call goes out for new songs, is a must on timing and getting their first! We don’t/won’t stop there. When your Hit Song has been accepted for pitching by The Song Ranch, Nashville BMI, means we have some invested interest just like you.
We’re going to get your song heard, and heard over and over again. Have you ever heard of a “Hit Song” being discovered by a friend of a friend of a friend in the record business or artist hearing it? This is just another example of going that extra mile for timing and getting there first, verses just sending in a CD when requested.
Taking it further is where The Song Ranch, Nashville, goes. We want to hear what an audience thinks about your Hit Song. So do the producers, record labels, and artist.
There are writer nights events open all over Nashville and surrounding cites. These are not your local karaoke bars. These are…make an appointment, audition, and maybe get a shot on stage. Anyone and everyone can be in the audience scouting for new songs. We know the best places to play and WE WILL GET ON STAGE to perform your songs. We can even get you on stage when you’re in the Nashville area (better have your “A” game going)! The songs you can hear in our catalog, have all been critiqued, co-written and played live several times, to make sure they have what appeals to live audiences and eventually will appeal to the artist, producers, and record labels. They are picked from our “Top 10” list like ripe fruit and then replaced with another one ready for the market.
If you already have that “Hit Song,” critiqued and professionally demoed, but are not having any luck with pitching it yourself or just want to change pitching/plugging companies, you will have to submit your song with a check to our critique services. Just send a note with your song that you are interested in pitching/plugging services. If we do accept your song for pitching, your critique fee will be credited back to you. If not, we will submit a letter of critique explaining what we feel is needing to make it a Hit Song. Fees for song plugging are all negotiable. We have been known to pitch and plug a song for a commission only, due only if the song gets cut and released. This is not the norm, but it does happen. Everything is negotiable. The two most powerful words in sales are, “Lets negotiate!” Now…Let’s get started writing, publishing, and getting your Hit Song to the market!
