“The coming together of different personalities in a room creating something that 10 minutes before never existed is an amazing thing to be a part of. Crafting and nurturing an idea from its infancy to fruition, whether it be the melody, the chords, the structure, or the lyric, is something that still energizes me.”

Here is how it works:
Step 1: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with completed SCA agreement. Please understand that we cannot listen to or accept outside material without a completed SCA (Song Critique Agreement) form. This completed form makes it possible for us to work with you and your song. Once we have your SCA on file, you can send us as many songs as you like.
Step 2: Send us payment via the PayPal button below. The price is $40 per song. Choose between 1, 2, or 3 song submissions. For a 3-song submission, the price is $100.
Step 3: Once we send you confirmation that your SCA has been received; you can then send us an mp3 of your song(s) to email@example.com. That is the only form of music we will accept. For future submissions you can submit your songs immediately following confirmation that your PayPal transaction is complete.
What to expect back:
You will receive your critique back in a Word Doc form within 14 days. The critique will provide you with our feedback in detail broken down by each section of your composition. We will be honest and give you the kind of constructive criticism that will help you improve your skills. As producers and songwriters, we are providing insight as to why we would or would not record your song.
We will not share your song with anyone outside of our office. If we really love your song and think it is a pitchable song that stands a chance to be cut, we will let you know the necessary steps that you could take.
