It is necessary to anyone, whether a songwriter or singer/songwriter to get some ‘press’. It shows you as being a professional and are worthy of attention to Industry folks. It is true that the industry has changed over the years, but there are still opportunities everywhere. What makes having press clippings so valuable is that if someone is looking for a song for a movie or TV show it could make the difference in picking between you and another write’rs song.
Why? you ask. You may say’ If my song is better than the other in contention why not just pick mine.’ There is no simple answer but here may be the reason.
The other writer is better known and that adds value to the movie or TV show or, the producers want to feel that you are a pro and feel that they could work better with the more professional (even if it only seems so.) songwriter or, the producers have used the other writer before and did well with that writer.
Relationships are the foundation of any business. Your press clippings may be your first “Hello” to a new and lucrative relationship.
Here is the equation
talent +more press + professionally recorded material = professional = more opportunity
