My old bandmate has been writing lots of country songs lately and sending them to me as simple vocal/guitar demos. I have the gear (and the time) to build a full track around him to make a reasonable finished track. We're not trying to make records - we have no plans to release them - but just good enough to submit the songs. Most artists and publishers say on their websites NOT to send unsolicited songs. Isn't that how they make their living? Publishers particularly could easily listen to a few seconds before chuckling them in the bin, couldn't they, in case there's a gem somewhere in there. You'd think that artists themselves, unless they're so prolific as writers they don't need to, would welcome the chance to choose the best from hundreds of songs submitted to them. Any ideas who might be interested in at least listening?
