I'm always looking for great songs in all kind of genres. * I'm A&R and music supervisor for special compilation Albums, which will be released worldwide: via a.o iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play and via in-store radio playlists. I'm looking for new good songs for these special compilations, so the approval rate for this project is high. * I'm looking on behalf of major labels for specific songs that fits their artists roster for 2024 / 2025. I'm directly in contact with these labels. These labels have shared their rosters with me and I help them to find the right songs for the right artist. Note: I'm looking for songs for major artists under major labels. So only submit your best work (no demos, just full finished and mastered recordings). For both projects: * Submit your best work * Cover songs are allowed. * Songs with vocals or instrumentals. * All genres are aloud. * No samples are allowed, unless the samples are cleared. * No demos. Radio ready songs. Good home recordings are welcome. * You need to own 100% of the copyright.
