HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR SONGS TO TOP MUSIC INDUSTRY CONTACTS
Now you have written a great song, made an awesome demo so now you will be rich and famous, right. Well, it is possible but I highly doubt it. There is not a doubt that being an amazing singer/songwriter, rapper, music producer, or musician that has a perfectly mixed and mastered version of all your songs is a great strategy in and of it. However, if you are engaged in having your music see the light of day by music industry contacts, your career is really just starting. While businesses like Mix Makers who publishes All Music Industry Contacts do a delightful job of helping you get your songs out in into the world, it is still totally up to you to be sure your music gets into the right hands. Until the music industry contacts who can essentially do something with your tunes, music industry contacts like record label A&R, music producers, music managers and music publishers) have listened to it, it might as well not exist. I understand that this sounds apparent although I believe you would be stunned at the amount of singer/songwriters rappers, music producers and musicians out there who has an impressive demo that very few, if any, music industry contacts people have ever heard. Creating the songs is one thing but getting your songs out there into the world requires a unique set of skills. The talents you should be focusing on are professionalism, networking, persistence; I will say again persistence, courtesy, and patience.
Like any industry, it is not only what you know it is also who you know which can get you ahead in music. What this means in the music industry is getting yourself out there to music industry events, open micas, writer’s nights and any form of promotion you can find. For those of you that live in cities where music industry contacts are more likely to be like New York, Nashville and Los Angeles, there is an just about an endless stream of opportunities to meet successful music contacts. For everybody else, you may have to gaze a little harder or take a trip from time to time to one of the cities I just pointed out. I think it is a common fact that this kind of thing is not that much fun consistently however, when you are first starting out it is necessary. Let’s put it this way: All things being equivalent, if you’ve ever met music industry contacts from a record company or music publishing company in a social situation and assuming you had a pleasant exchange, there’s a much larger possibility that they’ll not only consider you when you call but will make more of an attempt to help you out if they can. The point is that the more you get in contact with music industry contacts that work in the music industry, the more contacts you will encounter and the better the chance it will pay back down the road. I also suggest remembering a few key social skills while you are at it. Do not instantaneously launch into your 10-minute, spoken-word biography. It is a much better idea to find out a little something about the music contact you are chatting with by remembering to ask them a few questions as well.
Did I forget mention we are talking about the music industry? This means it is in your utmost interest to be proficient about how you go forward with music industry contacts in the business. When approaching someone in the music business, email or call first. Make the first contact brief and to the point. In other words, let them understand why you are calling/emailing (e.g., to schedule a meeting, to see if they are accepting music at this time, to ask whether you can submit a link to your website or an mp3, etc.). This is not the time to have a long conversation. If somebody has referred you that they know (see “networking” above), bring this up as well. In addition, while it is cool to be thrilled and even confident about your material, it hardly ever pays to tell somebody that you have a “killer” song or you are a “dope” singer/songwriter. Let your melody speak for itself. Once you have gotten authorization to do so, then submit your website link or bring it to the meeting. It truly doe's not make sense to send out CDs or mp3s without first getting approval from music industry contacts, as they usually end up at the bottom of the trash or, even better, the person who has not asked for it considers it and disturbance. Do not kill the messenger here; I am just saying that the odds are that if someone is not expecting your material, there is a good chance it will not be heard.
By the way, if you have never seen the office of an a&r rep or music publisher, I am here to tell you that it is wall-to-wall CDs. We’re talking hundreds and hundreds if not thousands of them. Make sure that your CD is clearly labeled with a few simple elements: your name and contact information (phone and email), the name of the song or songs and possibly — if it’s a song for an artist — the name of the person you’re pitching it to. Also, make certain that every part of the package is labeled. This means putting your information on the CD and on the CD sleeve or jewel case. Make sure that if the CD itself gets separated from the case, the information is the CD, too. Also, if you’re using a jewel case, make sure there’s information on the spine. Remember the part where I said there are thousands of CDs in these folks’ offices? When your CD ends up on a shelf with all the others, the spine of the CD will be the only way for them to identify it. Finally, I can think of no good reason why any submission should be more than three songs. If you’re pitching a song to an artist, they’re not hoping for a “bonus track.” If you’re pitching to a publisher, three songs is a good way to show them you’ve got more than one good song without overdoing it. If they want more, believe me, they’ll ask. It all comes down to putting yourself in the position of the industry person. If they’ve got a desk full of CDs to listen to and have to choose between a CD with two songs on it or one with 19 songs, which one do you think they’ll pick?
Let’s say you’re fortunate enough to reach someone by either phone or email and they’ve agreed to let you mail in a CD or email them an mp3. Here’s what you should expect: Nothing. In other words, it’s extremely rare that you’ll hear anything back quickly after you submit it. As a matter of fact, you should put in your calendar to follow up two or three weeks after you’ve submitted something. This follow-up should be even shorter than your initial contact. Email is probably best for this. A simple email saying you wanted to make sure they’d received your submission is enough. Also, don’t be surprised if the response you get back (if you’re lucky enough to get one) says they haven’t gotten it and would you mind resending it. Resending material is something that you should expect to do. Following up every two to three weeks (unless you’re asked not to) is perfectly acceptable if you’re polite and to the point. I’m not a cynic and I don’t believe that anyone has an agenda to ignore submitted material. I’m a realist and the sheer number of submissions makes it almost impossible for anyone to stay on top of things. Anything you can do to help remind someone is in your best interest and generally appreciated.
I think it’s important to realize that no one in the industry owes you anything. This may sound harsh but it’s an important point. You may very well have great songs and it would be in the best interest of the industry professional you’re pursuing to listen to them, but there are a lot of great songs out there and only a limited number of opportunities for them. If your song isn’t listened to right away or even if it’s lost or ignored, don’t take it personally. I’m a songwriter myself so I know exactly how important your songs are to you. It’s not easy to submit them for judgment and tougher still to wait around hoping someone will actually listen. However, you’ll only do yourself a disservice by being rude or impatient with someone and heaven help you if you get a reputation in the industry for being difficult or unpleasant.
Given that there are so many artists, songwriters and songs out there vying for a limited number of spots, it all comes down to patience — patience with yourself as you improve your musical skills and patience with the industry people you’re soliciting as they make their way through all of the material in line ahead of you. My recommendation is to have as many irons in the fire as you possibly can at all times so that you are not waiting for any one thing to happen or not to happen, as is so often the case. The more people you get to know, the more opportunities you explore and the more submissions you make, the less likely you are to get discouraged and the more likely you are to start having success.
