Possible good news today

Post by Casey H » Mon Jul 10, 2006 12:32 pm

Hey allA few weeks back I responded to a blurb in the IFS Newsletter (Inspiration for Songwriters) about an artist with some backing looking for songs. I got an email today that he may be interested in 2 of my songs. I don't want to say too much and jinx something that is very preliminary ...Fingers crossed... Casey

Very cool Casey. Will cross appropriate digits on your behalf.

Hi Casey.Good luck to you from my side, too! Is IFS online somewhere? "Inspiration for songwriters" sound like something I could need Chris

Hi Well this one looks really good. I have been in touch with the artist's manager and the artist is learning 2 of my songs for recording & likely inclusion on his next CD. The songs are "What a World" and "Painfully Single".Fingers and toes crossed! This one looks pretty good! If you have a chance, plese stop by www.caseysongs.com , give a listen to some songs, and sign the guestbook...PS I recommend you sign up for Ande Rasmussen's IFS free newsletter.

Congrats Casey! Here's hoping this artist will sell a million. Thanks for the link to IFS too, looks intriguing.

Hi allThanks for the friendship and support! I am in touch with this artist's manager and all is proceeding well!!! yay! In fact, there may be a live performance of 1-2 of my songs in Sept in front of a VERY large crowd at a festival.Sorry for the sketchy details... I can' t take a chance that my contact will be hounded with requests.Something interesting: A few years ago, when I first wrote "Painfully Single", I attended a songwriting seminar given by a well known author of books/CDs on songwriting who is also a frequent TAXI reviewer (I don't know his ID #). He played samples from our CDs and gave quick critiques. He told me that "Painfully Single" was a good song but no one would ever record it because artists like to be identified with their songs and who would want to say they were "painfully single"?Well, I have always had a lot of interest in this song from publishers. And now, it might actually get cut! I hope it gets cut, makes money, and I can remind this person of what he said!! Fingers and toes still crossed. Casey
