You might be writing a new song or practicing a new skill – whatever it is – time stops mattering. And as you pour into that something, you may find a sense of meaning. I’ve found moments like that to be some of the most fulfilling ones.
I was recently invited to read a spreadsheet full of the comments and scores from 150 “industry experts” and their opinions of a song. The reviews ranged from 1 out of 10 to 10 out of 10 and everything in between. They ranged from “love” to “hate”, from “radio hit” to “flop”, and from “annoying song” to “stroke of genius”.
I don’t think anyone would argue with me that the music marketplace is more crowded than ever. With the advent of digital audio workstations like ProTools and Logic, almost anyone with a computer can create a record and sell it on iTunes. This comes with both positives and negatives, which is not the aim of this article to explore. But what I do want to briefly dive into is how you can stand out in a very crowded room without resorting to crazy antics.
If you're a songwriter, it is important to know the different aspects of the music business and how they works, especially when it comes to publishing.
