1 Suprdave 9 months ago So my new project is coming along nicely. 13 songs into one Album/CD/Media stream whatever they're called these days. This guy, me, has an aging face,a balding head, and an expanding waistline. I also have about 4 hours of original music some recorded stuff, some not. I am a nobody in the music industry but I believe I have some pretty marketable stuff. I am totally okay with the fact that I will never be a ROCKSTAR. I get it. My thing is I would just love for somebody that is a ROCKSTAR to record one of my songs. I occasionally write songs with certain artists in mind. Other songs are just unique to my style of writing but I'm sure anyone could make it theirs, if you know what I mean. My question is, how can I get these songs into the right peoples ears? What do I need to do or how much do I need to spend? I have already gone to youtube to all of the songs that CDBaby attached and commented "This song is for sale.Contact me if interested." but that has gotten me nowhere and I doubt that Dave Grohl or anyone like that is streaming original music online just for entertainment value alone, for that matter, let alone to find new songs. As well, If my stuff sucks, I'd rather be told that than just be led along or even told why it sucks. If I understand correctly, there are only two people that write everything being played on Pop radio and a small group of three to four people that write everything that goes on the Country stations. It seems to me like the world is missing out on some great music, with that narrow minded way of thinking. JMO, right? I know a guy who pays good money to go to songwriting school in Nashville but seems to know he'll never get to sell a song for those reasons. I listen to his songs and think, man that's way better than chew tobacco, chew tobacco, chew tobacco, spit. Any suggestions for a struggling Rockstar/songwriter? Seriously, I can't be the only one. I know I'm not.
