Thread Name: Pitching a Song
Subject: RE: Pitching a Song
Hey Jed, no, you're not too late;>) I'm still looking for answers, but what I really want is a magic bullet to shoot my songs to some artist who will do a beautiful job of them. Or some great musician to come running up to me saying, "Hey, don't you have a great song I want to do?" (yeah, that's gonna happen...)
I've seen the occasional singer/songwriter at bluegrass festivals who carries around demo cds of their songs, and runs backstage after certain acts to try to convince one of the band members to take one. So far, I don't know anyone for whom this has worked.
I have had one guy, a local artist in another part of the country from me, who asked if he could record one of my songs. I said yes. Is this a good idea, or should I wait for the right musician to showcase the song better?
