- Choose an artist you connect with
Whether you came to our site already knowing which artist you wanted to work with or want to take our Artist Match, we’ll make sure you collaborate with an artist that sees your vision. Take some time to peruse our Artist Community of 1400+ artists, we’re sure your music soulmate is in here.
- Think about your recipient
Are you gifting this original song? Really think about the person you’re giving it to, rather than yourself. What’s the occasion? If it’s for a wedding, let’s stick to a romantic mood. If it’s for a birthday, let’s do something upbeat. Are they a big country music fan? We’ve got plenty of artists in that genre for them! The options really are endless, so take some time to think about what genre and mood would serve them and their occasion the best.
- Don’t skimp on the details
As someone smart once said, “It’s all in the details.” The more context you give your artist, the better the song is going to come out. So really set aside 20 minutes or so to fill out the prompts in our Song Builder. This will help shape your song’s direction and make sure it’s a hit on the first go-around.
An original song really is whatever you want it to be. Create a love song that could win over anyone or a personal anthem that rivals Katy Perry’s. Let’s get started on a song that means something to you.
