Here for the gear


Hello. I am interested in becoming a ghostwriter but I'm having a hard time finding any info on how much to charge per song for obvious reasons.

And before I go further I want to say that I understand the cons to being a ghostwriter. This is a decision I've made after many many years. I have some pretty severe mental health issues and notariety, no matter how small, would not be good for them.

But back to the question I was wondering if any people here are or have recently been a ghostwriter and could give me a fair price range.

To give a little more context I have been producing and songwriting for over 12 years both professionally and personally (mostly personally). Does the production quality increase the value or does it just get people more interested?

Thanks for taking the time to read I appreciate it.

People typically end up in ghostwriting situations because they’ve done work that someone noteworthy recognizes, who wants to claim similar work for themselves so much that they make an offer.

Like everything in art, it’s a game of attraction, and then setting your value based on the situations you’re able to attract. There’s no regulated ghostwriting scene with opportunity lists and price sheets to reference or anything. You have to put yourself out there in some way that will attract attention. Most stumble into ghostwriting situations along the way as part of a larger creative career.
