SONGWRITERS

Sooner is for all songwriters, artists and producers. From those just starting out, to "lunch pail" songwriters who work in the industry everyday.

Where Publishers And Songwriters Meet

Sooner is where songwriters, artists and producers come to meet publishers. Sooner's online platform provides an easy way for the industry to connect with songwriters. And our events peel back the window on publishers, helping us understand where they're coming from and builds common ground, so when the music is ready, the relationship is already in motion.

"If I believe it's a great song, I don't feel like I can pitch it enough! I'm always begging for more "tempo" because that's what producers in artists and managers are begging me for, tempos or something with a great groove." - Shar'n Clark, Shake Em Up Music

"Some writers grow quickly and some take longer. Some want to try different things on for size before they figure out who they are. What I’ve found is there is no real formula for songwriting. That's what makes it so interesting and fun because there really is no X + Y = Z."

-Cliff Audretch III, Downtown Music

"Just play your best song. Don't even try to play up-tempo or play this or play that. Just play your best song because it's an interview to have access to that publisher. So be a good hang, play one great song and respect their time!" - Steve Bloch, Steve Bloch Music

How'd You Get Your Deal?

Where there's a publishing deal, you'll probably hear a writer talk about somebody who opened the door for them. Somebody who was a believer, a champion. But don't take our word for it! 
 
In this video series, songwriters share the ups and downs, and the story of how, they got their all-important first publishing deal.
