Hello Kompozers! I've been a member of this collab site (and "Procollabs") for 9 months now. Time for a reality check. I am assuming most members of this group are at least somewhat serious about moving forward with their musical endeavors. Being strickly a lyricist, this site has been instrumental and essential in learning to adapt my "cold writes" to some great compositions and helping me realize that I can actually help to produce (I believe)songs that are pretty good. I am very grateful to all involved in giving me confidence and assurance, and aiding in the ongoing development of my writing form/process. Creative writing is the love of my life! :-) I put demos on Soundcloud, Reverbnation, Youtube, Facebook (stream only) for exposure/promotion purposes. Problem is, I'm not really sure whom or what I'm trying to reach! What's the "next level" and am I good enough to get there if I figure it out? Do "professional songwriting teams" simply form exclusively through "hit and miss" collaborative efforts such as these, or are there still major labels that hire people for their "major artists"? I'm not claiming to be good enough for the latter, but would love the opportunity to find out! :-) Being a free thinker, I admit that research isn't my strength, it's time I could be writing(in between earning a living and "life", in general). I'm kind of at a "crossroads" here. Whatever the case, I will continue to pursue this, but could never forgive myself if I didn't give this dream my best effort! Again, my sincere gratitude to all who have made this possible, regardless of where it may (or may not) leads! :-) There's plenty of examples of my work on this site if anyone's curious and I'm sure I've worked with some of you. All comments/suggestions welcome. I have rarely ever grown in an area of life without taking a few "blows to my chin"! :-) Thanks for your time and continuing support, it means a lot to me! John

I came across this distribution comparison chart on facebook and thought to post. It is hard to read but you can zoom in, but take a look at some of the distributors that have been around for a long time and with low fee's...........since there's no money in music anymore so why pay high fee's? https://aristake.com/post/cd-baby-tunecore-ditto-mondotunes-zimbalam-or (Also posted in the "Links" page) (chart is located towards the bottom of the page)

I need some advice on distribution platforms. I was asked to give my IPI-/CAE-Number for distrubution. Unfortunately I don't have one. I don't like to become a member of the German GEMA (where I guess I'd get such number assigned to), because I myself would have to pay if I'd perform my music publicly. And of course there is an anual fee. Looks like Tunecore would create such number for me? LANDR.com offers a distribution service which costs less and I guess they'd also need an IPI? Does anybody know if Tunecore or LANDR create this number for me. Do you have a recommendation in this matter?

Anyone heard of Futurefy? Is it ?legit?? I got this message on SoundCloud: ?Hallo Alice Minguez, are you interested in FREE promotion on our plattform FUTUREFY. ? I found your track right now: https://soundcloud.com/alice-minguez/sorrys-not-enough We can repost your track and also submit it to our 23k Youtube Channel and Homepage with download gate gathering new followers for you. We do special videos with own brand as you can see here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzmU41Rc1Sc And also put it on our Playlists on Spotify. If interested we can also sign other unsigned music from you (if this one signed already or so) in the future to our label Futurefy. and tell you more about it. Futurefy is just a brand but we are in music business over 17 years with great connections and wide audience of solid listeners. We do not just put a release out, we seek personally for good music and we are NOT a self-artistpromotion-releasing service. Check our work: http://futurefy.net/ www.youtube.com/c/Futurefy soundcloud.com/futurefy Please let me know. Would be cool to start something.? ??- I?m not quite sure what to make of this. Sounds too good to be true. Advice, please??

I spent some time yesterday organizing my projects in a Word document so that I can get ready to seek publishing. I look at things like whether or not I did any of the actual writing (lyric or melody), what the project is waiting for from me (usually vocal seps for a better mix), whether or not a mix has been done that includes my vocals. If I didn't write any of the song, but only did the vocals, I won't try for publishing, because I didn't really have a part in the composition process. So far I am working through my peterrand stuff, because there have been several with him in which I actually contributed lyrics. When sending to publishers you only need 3 songs, and I am getting really close, just with Peter's stuff. I have some older stuff of mine in various stages of completion that I will be sending as well. The great thing about music publishing is that your product doesn't have to be finished. You just have to be able to get your basic idea across, if you are willing to let someone else take your music and run with it. If you're good enough to get your product published as is ( which I would never be able to do on my own), even better! Another thing in my files is whether on not I have put a song on my SoundCloud. Soundcloud has nothing to do with making money, of course, but it might have something to do with promotion. It's encouraging to get the notification, even if just one person likes your song or is following you. And it's good for keeping all of your music in one place. I only use FB if my vocal is featured.

Hi peeps! Does anyone know how the "Composition Rights" and "Sound Recording Rights" on kompoz relate to performance and mechanical rights? I wanted to register some of my finished tunes and naturally want to give credit to all the great kompozers which have contributed to the music! :) Perhaps someone already has experience with this?

Hi, For those who are looking to grow their visibility, I thought I'd mention that I'm happy to include links to your websites/blogs/Soundblend pages on the 'Promoted Artists' page on my website. Won't deliver huge volumes of visits (at the moment anyway) but I guess every little bit helps. I've already got a couple of Kompoz members on the page so you may recognise some of the names. :) Here's the Promoted Artists page. Just send me a message if you'd like to be included. http://lyricslinger.co.uk/promoted-artists/
