We evaluate songs in groups and you may not hear back within 24 hours. It may take a bit longer if we're slammed.
Bug us if you don't hear back within a week or so. We don't mind. If you order more than 1 please
allow some extra time for each additional song.
We only accept song submissions by email (although there are some exceptions
made for non-U.S. writers) and we do not go to websites to critique songs that have been posted.
What to Expect from your Song Evaluations
What you'll get from us is information you can use. We do not consider comments
like "Your song is not commercial enough" or "Your song isn't what the market is
looking for" to be useful information. Song publishers (or music
publishers) don't always have the time, or perhaps the desire, to give
constructive criticism. While the above 2 comments may be actually be true
for a song comments like these are useless to the
writer and you won't hear them from us. Instead you'll hear what the songs
strong points are as well as specific reasons why a song might be a tough pitch
on Music Row.
If you'd like, we'll also tell you how to fix it. Read on...
If we think your song could be a possible contender following a good rewrite, we'll offer you a
consult. This offer is made
on about 1 or 2 out of every 10 songs submitted. We do not offer Rewrite Consults on every song
we receive by any stretch...only those possessing
We give honest, straightforward, constructive criticism and feedback. If that's
what you want, then you've come to the right place.
We won't pull punches to earn your business. And that's a promise.
We're looking for writers who can not only handle criticism, but also use it to improve their craft. Criticism isn't about a writer's character, talent, personal value, or potential and it shouldn't be taken as such. It's about the song, period. If you are unable to accept criticism and use it toward your skill development as a songwriter, you may be in the wrong business.
"I think your evaluation was awesome, br.... You obviously poured
yourself into looking at this particular song. I find much food for
thought and clear perspective in what you've shared. This seems to be
something you're very good at." C. Evan Loenard, Anderson, SC
"I got a response from Harlan Howard Songs...my contact in Nashville
. Well, you
surely do have the ear! [They] said basically exactly what you said!" Orlando Luckey, Cincinnati OH.
"Thank you so much for taking the time in giving intelligent critiques.
You make perfect sense, and at least you didn't tell me that I should
take up knitting. Thanks for all you do for us nobody songwriters" Brenda McBryde, San Antonio, TX
"First, let me tell you that you're great! I truly appreciate the
way you express things: it's clear and always documented with a reason
or an example. I'll tell the people around me that you know how to
evaluate a song, because you do. You know your business and it
shows. Let me tell you that you've taught me a lot of things in a
few lines. I won't forget your kindness and professionalism..."
