  1. June Musings. When something difficult is happening in our personal lives or the world at large, it's almost impossible to go about our day-to-day as if we are untouched by it. During particularly unsettling times, our shared grief, fears, and questions naturally filter into our creative process. To the SongU.com writers: our instructors, mentors, coaches, and pitch guests have noticed that you have been speaking your truth and finding your stories in the sorrows and joys that life brings to us all. We encourage you to continue to arrive at the universal through the specific. Remember that YOUR creative viewpoint is an integral part of the songwriting process. Keep it up!

    The June Member Spotlight Playlist! We asked you to submit your very best songs about nature, seasons, weather, or holidays. Congratulations to the Spotlight Songwriters this month! Hear all the songs by CLICKING HERE.

    General Registration 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.

Pitch #2049


SONGS FOR INSURANCE COMPANY COMMERCIAL. Street Pitch guest, N.P. is seeking songs that have a sentimental, but upbeat tone. Emotional, but not dramatic. Predominantly acoustic/organic instrumentation, but can have some electronic elements as long as it keeps the warm tone. Lyric themes of family, having fun, enjoying time together, traveling, journey, on the road, going on an adventure or vacation, etc. Male or female vocals. Genres: Singer-songwriter, pop, rock, indie, Americana. References for tone: "Family" Drew Holcomb, "Family is Family" Kacey Musgraves, "Do You Believe In Magic" The Lovin' Spoonful, "Home" Edward Sharpe, "Send Me On My Way" Rusted Root, "Walking On Sunshine" Katrina & The Waves. Songwriters, important:
SONGS SUBMITTED HAVE TO BE CLEARED FOR SYNC LICENSING as per the following guidelines (no exceptions):
- You must own both your master (recordings) and 100% of your synchronization (publishing). If you do not...
- Then, all master owners, co-writer(s) or co-publisher(s), must sign our licensing agreement as well.
- Songs must be CLEARED: meaning if you have paid musicians and/or singers including background vocalists, you must have a signed 'work for hire' OR RELEASE form for each person involved in making your recording so that they have no further claim to the song. Please note, the producer who produced your recording should be able to help you acquire a work for hire agreement or release, however in many cases there may be a fee involved particularly if the recording was purchased as a demo. No writers signed with major publishing companies with major administration deals.
- Submissions must be MASTER/BROADCAST QUALITY recordings. If we express interest, you will need to supply us with a mastered copy of both the song AND an instrumental track.

PITCH FOLLOW-UP: If this guest expresses interest in your song you will be asked to sign an agreement for this project only (non-exclusive); with a 50%/50% split for both the master/sync licenses. Will not take publishing of the song so the publisher/writers will get all the performance income. If there is no upfront licensing fee, the 'guest' will take 50% of the publishing income for this placement only. The 'guest' will not take ownership of the copyright.

Got Good News? Tell us all about it!.
