A truly global marketplace

We live in a truly global marketplace, where a songwriter can have his or her music, made in many differing global locations.

I recently had the drums to a track put down by a drummer in his studio in France, I put the guitars and bass down here in Somerset UK, the sax was done in another part of the UK, and a Nashville vocalist added vocals at his own studio in Music City! It came back here to be mixed!

The Anthony Mirabile Story

Born Anthony Mirabile in Norfolk Virginia, he spent his early childhood, working at a family own restaurant of sorts “TONY’S HOT DOGS”. But all through his childhood, Anthony had the passion for music, but because of working at the family business 8 to 12 hours a day it left little time to pursue his dream.

Vocalists - I need you :)

Working as I do, in my own studio in the UK, often writing Nashville style material, I severely lack good country and country/rock vocalists, male and female, who have access to their own studios to lay vocal tracks down for me.

I don't have session vocalist budgets available, but do offer the following if the vocal delivery is good enough to send to pitch....

1. 10% of the publishing rights to the song involved

2. The chance of your voice being heard by record…

A different way forward for songwriters

There are many very talented songwriters out there, who cannot break down the 'gatekeepers' at music publishing houses, to get their material heard, so are there other ways a songwriter can get his/her music heard and in front of artists and bands? The answer is yes!

With the music publishers rarely giving decent financial advances and demo cost retainers these days, it is possible for songwriters to 'sell' a small percentage of their catalog, say 10%, to an investor or financial…

A Funny Story
