Forum for presenting new songs?

Think I have made a good c&w / roots song for US market.
Any idea where I could present / send my song? Or maybe impossible to get through to the right people.....

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but having sent out hundreds of demos, I can tell you that without a pitch man from a well established publisher who does business with major labels on a regular basis, you're going to have a tough time getting anyone to listen. Demos have a bad habit of coming back to you, looking as if a child has drawn all over them with stickers stating," We Do Not Accept Unsolicited Material". Or not coming back at all.

If (big if) you can somehow or the other get the name of someone in A&R at a major or independent label and address it to them specifically, it may get listened to for the first twelve seconds. The intro must be extremely kick-ass, no longer than four bars and the production must be spotless in order to get beyond this point.


It probably sounds as if I'm trying to disuade you from even attempting to get your song heard, I'm painting such a bleak picture. Nothing could be further from the truth. Songwriting is a long, hard road. Be ready to go the farthest route. Believe in what you are doing, do the best that you can possibly do and be prepared for the chance that may very well be your only chance to shine. Work hard and be ready, no regrets.

Thanks. I had a feeling that this is not so easy. Are you still trying?
