There is a song; and there is a Hit Song.
Which one do you want to write? Are you a Hit Song Maker?
Have you ever felt the struggle of writing dozens, if not hundreds, of songs, only to still be waiting for that 'break'?
Have you committed a lifetime to writing and pitching or performing songs, all the while seen other songwriters, some even in your own community, made it with Hit Songs while you're still waiting....?
Are you feeling the financial pinch?
Are you spending money recording songs and trying to make a living with your music, but still having to do the 9-5 job?
Are you spending months, perhaps years, crafting the perfect song so that it can become a Hit?
I am a songwriter. I’ve written hundreds of songs. I have 7 albums out as a recording artist and I tour the world performing. I also place my songs in TV shows and films, and have had songs cut by other artists. I’m also the creator and President of Songsalive!, a non–profit songwriters membership organization. I’ve met and supported many songwriters and artists (in the vicinity of several thousand, whom I know by name). I also coach songwriters and artists. I’ve run many songwriting workshops, after learning from many of the greats. I live and breathe music and (for better or for worse) I understand the music business. I’ve had my fair share of successes, and I’ve certainly had that same fair share of rejection.
And this is what I have learned. Hit Song starts with the writing. You can’t fix a poor song structure in production, or mixing; and you certainly can’t make it fix a bad song with marketing, money or distribution. If it’s not a good song (a great, superb song) in the crafting of it, no amount of money or push will make it successful.It must start with the SONG itself, while remaining CONSCIOUS of what else will come into play. If you don’t know how to get it out into the world, for people to hear it, I’ll take you through those steps in my book.
NEW BOOK BY GILLI MOON Available
I have created a “ Hit Song Recipe" - a collection of special ingredients that makes up the “Hit Song” sauce - and I want to share it with you.
I've written a book, called The 360 Degree Songwriter, to help you as a songwriter gain a clearer path on how to write a “Hit” song and why you should at least write one for your catalog. Who knows, once you get hooked, you may realize that all your songs can be Hits!
But songs aren’t Hits just in the writing. This book focuses not just on songs, but you as the songwriter. This is where my coined phrase, “the 360º (Degree) Songwriter” comes into play. You’ll discover the mindset you need in order to write the Hit songs, deliver them to the ears and minds, and jettison them, and you, towards success. You’ll also receive tips on marketing, branding and networking in the music business, including an in-depth chapter on licensing and publishing your songs.
By the end of this book, you’ll have your Writing Recipe book, and you’ll be able to determine whether you're up to playing the music business game to succeed as a professional, consummate, 360º Songwriter. Through my carefully crafted strategies, you’ll give your SONG the BEST SHOT. Actually, a SLAM DUNK.
I would like to say thanks for the in depth information in your book. I have just finished reading your book, "The 360 Songwriter," from cover to cover and each section was informative, but most of all I could connect & relate to the writing process you mentioned. What stood out for me is owning your identity as an artist. I’m inspired to write a couple pages of rhymes daily…”
