WANT TO SELL YOUR OWN SONG TO AN ARTIST?
Previously, only popular songwriters could sell their music to artists. Today there are many recording studios which record more than 1,000 songs a year, where every other client is interested in buying a ready-made song.
WHERE TO SELL A SONG?
With the question of where and to whom to sell your own song, every author and composer is faced. Now, independently sell a song will be difficult enough without having connections in the music industry. The author will have to face a number of difficulties, such as:
Gathering a database of artists.
Contacting the artist (sending songs to the mailing address), correspondence will take a lot of time and effort.
Sending new songs as they are written
WHAT STYLE IS BETTER FOR WRITING A SONG?
The best selling songs are in commercial genres. These are songs that occupy the top charts on the radio, TV, internet sites.
IN WHAT FORM DO WE ACCEPT SONGS?
Of course, you can record a song on a Dictaphone, for example, accompanied by a piano or guitar. But in this “raw” form the song is not suitable. If the studio likes the song, they can arrange the song, record professional vocals, mix and master the track. Certainly it will take time, that’s why the studio will not process demo records without an arrangement in the first place.
If your song has at least a basic arrangement, then the studio doesn’t need to include imagination of how it could sound in different genres and spend time on making a finished product. Songs with an arrangement are more expensive for the studio to buy and sell faster!
CAN WE SELL JUST THE LYRICS TO MY OWN SONG?
Yes, the studio can only buy your lyrics if they like them. Certainly in priority, these are ready songs on a turn-key basis. Because of this the studio doesn’t consider buying lyrics in the first place.
Also, if you have only lyrics, then you need a professional song arrangement, which would sell it as profitable as possible. The studio provides arrangement services on a fee basis. Then you can sell the song yourself or ask for help in selling the song to the studio where you made the arrangement.
HOW DO I SELL MY SONG TO A FAMOUS ARTIST?
Without personal connections in the music industry, this is almost impossible. In some cases you can get in touch with the artist’s manager and offer material, but in 98% of cases such letters go unanswered. The studios work with popular artists in all genres of music and have personal contact with them and their managers. If the studio likes the song, the studio will gladly offer it to a famous artist.
ORDER AND STAGES OF COOPERATION:

HOW MUCH DO SONGS SELL FOR? PRICES
The author’s fee directly depends on the “hit” of the song and its relevance in the music market. The studio takes songs in realization at your price, and all expenses connected with mailing of letters, payment of a manager on work with clients the studio takes upon itself. The studio charges +50% to the cost of the song (and more at the studio’s discretion).
How much is a soul worth?
There is no definitive answer to this question as the value of a soul is subjective. Some people may believe that a soul is priceless and cannot be quantified, while others may assign a specific monetary value to it. Ultimately, the worth of a soul is up to each individual to decide.
What is selling your soul in the industry?
In the music industry, selling your soul can mean a number of different things. It can mean compromising your artistic vision in order to make music that is more commercial and likely to be successful. It can also mean sacrificing your personal values and ethics in order to work with people or organizations that you don’t agree with or that you don’t feel comfortable with. It can also mean putting your own well-being and health at risk in order to pursue your music career.
Do record labels take your soul?
There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on individual circumstances. However, in general, record labels do not take people’s souls. Rather, they typically offer artists and songwriters an opportunity to share their music with a wider audience and earn royalties from sales and streaming. While there can be financial and creative sacrifices associated with signing with a record label, it is not typically a Faustian bargain in which the artist’s soul is traded for commercial success.
What the music industry really sells?
The music industry is a business that sells music. It can be in the form of recordings of songs, such as CDs, digital downloads, or vinyl records, or it can be live performances. The music industry also sells merchandise related to music, such as T-shirts, hats, or posters.
