Want to get your songs released?
If you want your tracks to get noticed by publishers and record labels, they’re going to have to sound like the demos submitted by the pros. Don’t allow yourself to believe any music business executive will “hear through the demo” to a good song. That’s madness. Get your demos to the level that they jump out of the speakers every time and do your songs the justice they deserve.
