How Many Songs in a Song Demo?
By: Jerry A. Greene
Question: I am just completeing my song demo and getting it ready for mastering. I was wondering how many songs I should put on a CD if I am going to be sending it out to publishers and producers as a demo of what I can do?
Answer: It depends on what you are trying to accomplish with your song demo CD. Are you trying to get a recording contract? Is it going to and A&R departement, or a record producer? Are you trying to get your songs published? Are you trying to secure a staff writer position with a music publisher? These are all questions that you need to consider when trying to figure out how to best put a demo CD together.
Unfortunately, most CD's end up in the garbage, or in a big pile that never get listened to, so make sure that you have permission to send the demo song CD in the first place!
Whether, or not you have other people shopping your demo around, you may want to consider doing it yourself as well. --> Song Plugging With Tip Sheets <--
