SONGSTARTERS! is a Nashville & Philly based, award-winning music publisher with a unique business model. Besides placing songs with recording artists and various media outlets, SONGSTARTERS! has built a catalog of half-finished song snippets (“Starters”), which get presented to major label recording artists and pro songwriters for possible co-write opportunities. Toby Keith, Craig Morgan, Ronnie Milsap, Steve Azar and James Otto have all recorded songs that came from the SONGSTARTERS! catalog and began as Starters!

In the never-ending quest to find the best possible Starters to submit to the majors, SONGSTARTERS! is now accepting outside submissions for consideration.

The program works like this:

1) You submit your "Starter" for review

2) If selected, the artist will enter into a single-song publishing agreement with SONGSTARTERS! and the song will be worked on by a staff wrtier

3) Once the track has been successfully co-written, SONGSTARTERS! will pitch the song to an artist or charting songwriter

Although there are roughly 300 songs in the SONGSTARTERS! publishing catalog, typically only 4 or 5 tracks are worked at a time, which ensures that your song will be actively shopped and delivered to the best possible sources.

To be selected, it is paramount that the song/idea evoke emotion in the listener. Typically, the songs selected are positive, uptempo songs in the country or pop arena.

Just like in the world of the pro songwriters, your chances for success with this program are only as good as the material you submit. SONGSTARTERS! offers no guarantee that your submission(s) will be accepted for publication.
