3) Article: Just a short note...

The biggest news that has been going on now for a few month is the financial recession in the US and the rest of the world. This crisis has also an influence on the music business. But does it has also an affect on the Internet. Well..As my honest opinion.It has surely an impact on the advertisement and the behavior of visitors "to buy or not to buy" on the net.. It was already quit a hard business, and the finacial crisis will not make it better. So, the music business ( and we all) will have to deal with this,and find new ways to make the best of it.Hopefully the world will overcome the crisis in time.. This could last for a year or two (let's hope). In the meanwhile , we have to continue writing songs.

and maybe you do some song promotion with entering to the songwriting contests 2009.

4) Looking for songs!


Make sure that you copyright material before sending it to anybody else.

- Make sure that you make a contract/ signed agreement if you the singer,producer/songwriter want to team-up for a song, music deal.... -Make sure you fully understand any offer that's been made. -Otherwise, you betterfind legal advice before signing anything: Record deal, publishing deal, or any other deal between you as a songwriter and the other.

5) songwriting contests

We don't stand guarantee about these songwriting contests.. New contests have to prove themselves and established have already a long tradition. But tis doesn't mean that new starting songwriting contests are just fake , or so. Every contest has been started one day and needed credibility that they have been build-up troughout the years of experience. Again , I don't want to say that new contest have less value, but just be careful ( as usual), and you may let us know when things have gone right (or not)

Normally these contest are accessible for every songwriter, whatever country he's or she comes from, you can access ( as long as you pay the access fee of course). But, to make things clear and avoid disappointments, better read the rules of entry first. You never can be too sure, do you.
