The Co-Sign Of A Songwriter Can Move Mountains
When you were imagining how to get signed to a record label, I bet you didn’t even consider how a hit songwriter could make that happen, did you?!?!?! The great thing about hit songwriters, is that they don’t get approached as much as record label executives or even major producers. Well obviously, the HUGE one’s do, but I can think of several major songwriters who would even be recognizable to you. Often they are so far behind the scenes and not in the spotlight like everyone else. Therefore, if you do your research and figure out who the good one’s are, they may be more likely to give a shot just because they don’t get approached everyday, like a Pharrell Williams or Timbaland for example.
Regardless of your style of music, a great songwriter can do nothing but enhance your experience as you strive to get a record deal. Plus, everyone who’s getting paid in the music industry knows they have to diversify, so signing an artist is definitely on the table. Like a major producer, a major songwriter could either sign you to their company or walk you in to get a deal directly at a record label. Everyone wants to connected to that which is fresh and ready to blow!
You may think it’s all about how to get signed to record label, but really, it’s about how you can position yourself to get a record deal. Be sure to watch the interviews we’ve done with professional songwriters HERE!
