May Musings. Our coaches, FDBK instructors, and pitch guests notice and appreciate the work you have been doing. In my recent song feedback session, our group, Ewa from Poland, Priscilla from the UK, and Carey from Nashville, discussed how songs bring both the writers and listeners a great deal of comfort and connection with the power to ground, heal, and support us in our daily lives. I encourage you, fearless songwriters, to keep writing. Write songs for yourselves, for one other person, or the masses. Remember WHY you write. It's all good. Keep it up!
The BTS Live Experience! What's BTS (besides a K-Pop boy band)? It's a live Behind-The-Scenes add-on option associated with certain pitches. This month, we're offering a SYNC PLACEMENT BTS with our guest licensing agents from Washington Street Publishing, Nancy Peacock and Queenie Mullinex. If you SUBMIT A SONG to Street Pitch #2038 Christmas and Winter Holiday Songs, BEFORE MAY 31st*, you can choose to ADD-ON a live class session on 5/31 and be a "fly on the wall" while they listen to your song and those of others. It's a great way to get a peek into the ACTUAL listening process and see how YOUR song stacks up amongst the rest. *Space is limited for these special sessions and may fill up before the submission deadline. A transcript will be available if you can not make the live session.
May/June Playlist Submissions Open. Submit your very best song about nature, seasons, weather, or holidays to the current Member Spotlight Playlist! Find details in FAST-TRACK Pitch #2035. Deadline to submit your song: May 20th.
General Registration and International Member Reminders. You may have 2 Active FDBK courses at one time, but can add a 3rd if there is still an open spot 24 hours before a course starts. Check your live Course schedule in case someone cancels during the week and a seat opens up. TO ALL, please delete your course from your Active courses page if you are not going to attend and have no song in your backpack. Thank you. International members, if there are any FDBK sessions you can not be present at due to a time-zone challenge, you can register to attend the session anyway. Just be sure to add your work-tape and/or lyric to your backpack and a note to the instructor for feedback on the recorded transcript. Also, be sure to look for our GMT-friendly meetings (between 1-3pm EST) during the week and on Saturdays for meetings that may fit your "live" schedule. As always, remember to "Submit Your Good News" in your Account area.
GOLD STARS! CONGRATULATIONS to our members whose songs were picked up in the past 72 hours to be signed or pitched from our leads! See who else had their songs recently picked up.

GEORGE STRAIT. Project still ongoing. Extended! Street Pitch guest, D.G., veteran music publisher, who has already generated income for SongU members, is looking for songs for Universal Music Group/EMI artist George Strait. The Strait project is still ongoing and I am needing undeniable radio hit songs for this iconic country artist. Pitch songs that are so good that if Strait cut it, the song would become a standard, you know the ones Iâ€™m talking about. Needless to say, the bar is very high so pitch your very best. Think about songs that are the perfect embodiment and pure essence of George Strait from the early 80â€™s to the present. Pitch Follow-up: Publishing must be available. If this guest expresses interest in your song, you will be asked to sign a single song agreement, executable only with a major cut.
