One of the biggest mistakes I see newer songwriters do is spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on recording a demo or an entire album of songs that are NOT ready. The BEST advice I can give is to spend their money and initial efforts on professional critiques and honing their craft. A mediocre song dressed in fancy production is still mediocre. A great song with even just one instrument will SHINE and rise to the top.

What People Are Saying
Becky has a unique ability to write songs that express how other people feel.
Wow. Very nice work! This is the best pitch I've received for this project. I'm passing it along to my client [artist] with my recommendations.
You're a great songwriter with obvious talent. Send me everything you've got.
You are so gifted, your songs really are from the heart. Your songs say perfectly what I want to say to my adopted son.
