Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s feature update video. I’m Steve Schramm, one of the founders of BuyDemoTracks.com, and I’m excited to share with you the first version of what we call Song Funnels. We discovered that there are two ways to think about the music world, and for our purposes here, we’ll call them the old way and the new way.
The old way involves a select group of elite songwriters writing for a select group of A-list or B+ list artists. These elite songwriters usually have long-term publishing deals, work for companies, or have networked their way to the top. Many songwriters think that if they’re not part of this elite group, they won’t get to write for top artists or may spend a lifetime trying to reach that level.
We suggest that this approach needs to change entirely because, thanks to the internet, we now have exposure to a much wider group of songwriters and artists. There are hundreds or even thousands of great songwriters and tens of thousands of fantastic artists. These talented artists are gaining their own audiences and growing their follower base, and it would be amazing for you to have them sing one of your songs. Sync licensing can also apply here, so you’d receive songwriter royalties on those songs.
BuyDemoTracks.com aims to help match the right artists with the right songwriters in this vast world. A Song Funnel is a tool we developed to help songwriters get in front of the artists they need and help artists find the songs they want. When someone visits our Song Radar, which is our song library, they can filter down to find the exact song they want by topic, genre, key, and duration. By being on our site, you have a higher chance of being discovered by artists looking for new music.
We believe this is going to revolutionize the music industry, with artists pitching themselves to songwriters and requesting to record your songs instead of you having to find artists to pitch. We’re also excited to announce that we’ll have an improved version of Song Funnels, version two, coming soon to make this process even easier for new artists visiting our site.
For now, though, it works and it’s amazing. We think it’s going to change the music industry, and we’re excited for you to join us on this journey.
