EVERYONE WHO TAKES MY COURSE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SUBMIT THEIR SONGS FOR PROJECTS
I just got a request for Contemporary, new, radio ready R & B – any moods and tempos for various scenes. Male or Female vocals with corresponding
instrumentals. Please do not send instrumental tracks that aren’t accompanied by a vocal version.
They are not looking for club music. These songs are needed for scenes where people are hanging out at home, with friends or chatting and having
introspective moments. They can be fun, just NO thumping club music.
I must have all submissions NO LATER THAN 3pm PT on Thursday, March 5 (6pm ET). This is a hard deadline. Anything received after the deadline will not make this pitch.
Upload WAV or AIFF ONLY with full tracks and instrumentals.
