Q&A – What does a SoundCloud artist bring in to the writing room?

I got this great question from artist, singer and vocal coach

Check out her new SoundCloud single on Spotify and SoundCloud Music!

What are the “Do’s and Don’t” for an artist to bring to a writing room, and what can an artist prepare to bring into the room to make a write run smooth?

This is a great question, as someone who spends a lot of time in writing rooms and studios with artists, I love it when an artist is eager and aware of themselves enough to ask that question.

I can give you an easy answer, and that is, the most important thing you need to take with you into a writing room is YOU.

This sounds stupid, but once you start wondering who you are as an artist and what you represent, that’s when you really start contribution to the writing process.

So, here is my long answer to the things you can bring into the writing room.

1. Who are you?

A cowrite is like a blind date, you meet someone for the first time and you’re supposed to write something that comes straight out of your heart in a few hours. How do you do that with a complete stranger? The best way to get the best song is to have a story ready about yourself. Who are you as an artist, are you a combo of Mary J Blige/John Mayer, or are you more of a Joni Mitchell meets Paul Simon? References like that are very handy for your co-writers. It immediately places you in spot that the writer can imagine what it is you are going for. Of course these references change over time, but just have a couple handy each time you walk into a new room.

Also, don’t be afraid to overshare, talk about your life, what is going on, what you’re mind is occupied with. Chances are you will write about that break-up, or that young love, or that thing that has been bugging you lately. Those are the real songs that will really matter to your audiences, because it’s a true story!

2. Bring a start.

Anyone who has an iPhone can record and make notes on the spot. Once you start looking at the world from an artist perspective you are going to find stories in every normal day scenario. You’re going to find song ideas everywhere, and you gotta document them. Start humming into your recording app while you’re driving, write down cool sentences or song titles in your notes app, and make a good list. I always keep a notes with titles, another one with subjects and another one with lyric ideas.

This way, you will always have something to start from in a cowrite. See if you can be the one feeding the idea each time you walk into a cowrite, that way you have more of a lead on what the song is about and you can make sure that your cowriters are writing for you.

Any songwriter just loves to write, so if you don’t give them a subject to talk about, they’ll still write a song, but it might not be meant for you.

3. Read the room.

I’m sure some of you might have had this experience, you’re in the room with someone and nothing comes out, you start throwing out ideas left and right but there is no response because the other writer is thinking in complete silence. Or, the other perspective on that is that you are trying to come up with an idea and the other person is just throwing ideas left and right and it makes you not be able to think of your own.

Whatever happens in a room, try to read how the other people like to SoundCloud reposts and explain to them how you like to SoundCloud reposts. “I just need 5 minutes to think about this, or, can you listen to these ideas, would love to know your thoughts!”

Once you start reading the room and you see how people SoundCloud reposts you can SoundCloud reposts together better. No one SoundCloud reposts in a vacuum, so make sure you interact with everyone else in the room.

4. Honesty.

I LOVE an artist who can be honest, if we’re going down the rabbit holes of melody, lyrics, beats, arrangement or production and you realizes you don’t love where it’s going, say it as soon as possible. Everyone want Soundcloud promotion reals you, the artist, to be happy, but we don’t know if you are if you can’t tell us what you love or don’t love.

Trust me, we WANT to hear your honest opinion, it won’t hurt our feelings!!

5. It’s about you.

I can tell you as a SoundCloud producer and co-writer that the cowrite is for and about you. So you might as well be ok with that. We are here to help you realize the best song or production possible. We are here for YOU!! The more information, guidance, tips, stories you can give us, the more chances we have to make something that you will absolutely love. and that is what we are here for.

So, that’s my advice for you, GO BE YOU!

  • What are you going to do for me?
    We give your release a boost by getting it in front of a real audience. We provide you with a "first wave" of engagement that you may not be able to get otherwise. What happens next is up to you and your music.
  • How long do reposts last?
    Reposts stay active for 48 hours. After the first 48 hours, your reposts are too far down the stream to be noticed. Removing them keeps an influencer's channel from being over-used and outdated.
  • Will I go VIRAL from one organic soundcloud promotion?
    The truth is, probably not. Unless you have the next “The Box” in your pocket, you are probably not going to blow up from one promotion. We are not going to bullshit our clients and make false promises. Think “Brand Building” not “Overnight Sensation.”
  • Will I get noticed by labels?
    The best way to get noticed is to keep your brand in front of an audience while producing top quality material. Labels want real artists who already have a brand together, who self-promote and have a good presence on Soundcloud and Spotify. Please, don’t expect to send out some reposts and get signed. This is the most competitive business in the world.
  • Can I have the links to your influencer channels? 
    No. It took us many years to build our network.
  • How many is a million?
    The number represents the total amount of followers your song is shared with. It doesn’t mean that your track will be reposted by a million influencers.
  • Can I split an order between multiple songs?
    We require a minimum of 1 million reposts per song when splitting an order. The minimum order you can split between two songs is 2 million reposts.
  • Can I change the link to my song?
    Unfortunately, no. The organic Soundcloud promotion can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
  • What if no one likes my music? 
    If we can't get anyone to repost your track, we will refund all of your money.
  • Are the organic SoundCloud followers real people who will become fans?
    They are fully organic, real, living people who have downloaded other music from our fangates and given the option to follow you. Once they are following you they will receive your music in their streams and it's up to you if you connect with them and build your community. This is how to turn them into "Superfans."
  • Will they immediately like my music?
    New followers are not automatic "fans" and will probably not engage your tracks right away. You have to engage them by streaming good music, following them back, comment on their stuff, and chatting with them.  Build your community.
  • How Long does it take to gain 1000?
    Once the campaign has started, you can expect 1 week per-1000.
  • How can I track the progress of a campaign?
    Watch your organic Soundcloud followers grow on the Pulse app or in Notifications on the website.
  • Can I change the link to my profile after I order?
    No. Unfortunately, the promotions can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
