My first forward, two at once!

Post by Skatzsinger » Tue Mar 04, 2014 3:15 pm

I got my first forward through a few days ago. I've only been a member for about a month but I saw a listing which was for a children's song for a Children's Educational company. Right up my street. One of the things I've done a lot is children's workshops in schools, so I knew exactly what they were looking for. But just to make sure, I submitted 3 different songs with different styles and rhythms, and 2 of them were forwarded.

It's not a hugely lucrative deal, just a fairly small fee and no royalties because it's only going to be used live at workshops and not sold, but the listing said they may want more songs, so fingers crossed.

Yay! Happy songwriter!

Now to work on some quirky Indie songs, I'm full of ideas now.

Good luck everyone!

Thanks lads (that's Irish for everyone),
I'm trying not to get too excited, I know that it can take time or not happen at all.
Here's hoping!

Congrats Andrew, particularly as it's your first forward!

I got a forward for that listing as well and yes, the money isn't much, but I'm still excited to get the forward.

Do you have a link you can post up so we can hear your song?

Cheers

Hi FM,
Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I've not been on the forum properly for a while.
I've been trying to find a way to link you to my Profile page but I can't work out how to do it. Any ideas?
If not I'll put it up on Soundcloud for a short while so you can see it.
Have you got a link to yours? I'd love to hear what every one else has sent.
Thanks
