"Dreams are free, you might as well dream big."
What do we do really?
Our primary job is to link up new songs by songwriters with suitable recording artists to record them, with the intent of creating a hit record and generating large numbers of sales and air play. Promoting such songs. Supervising the collection and payment of publishing royalties for sales to our writers. Placing writerssongs in other media such as movie soundtracks and commercials. Handling copyright registration and "ownership" matters for published songs, are among other jobs handled by Krysto Drym Music Publishing. Music print is also supervised by us, the issue of songbooks and sheet music by artists.
Who do you work with?
Producers, directors, music supervisors, record companies, commercial production companies, trailer houses and of course songwriters. A songwriter in Krysto Drym Music Publishing's terms is someone who writes the lyrics to songs, the musical composition (chords) or melody to songs, or both. That is to say, a songwriter is a lyricist, a composer, or both. The word "songwriter" is however more commonly used to describe one who writes popular songs than to describe a writer of art songs.
Legally, songs may only be copied or performed publicly by permission of the authors. The legal power to grant these permissions may be bought, sold or otherwise transferred. This is governed by copyright law. Songwriting and publishing royalties can be a substantial source of income, particularly if a song becomes a hit record.
Thought of the day about new artists
What I’d like for more people to realize is that when you submit your music for opportunities, the people who are screening your music are people who care, just like you and I. In most cases they’re musicians too. They probably understand and empathize with your frustrations more than you realize and they don’t enjoy having to deny anyone opportunities.
Even if you don’t understand why you’re not having the success that you believe you deserve I urge you to withhold judgement and to just stay at it and get as much honest, constructive feedback as you can. When your results in the outside world match your hopes and expectations then you’ve reached the point where you truly know what it takes and can judge your own work. Until then, you don’t and you can’t. If you’re not there yet then take 100% responsibility for getting yourself there, even if you don’t know how you will. If you have faith then you’ll have the strength to stay at it long enough to figure it out. In the meantime, be cool and treat people with kindness and respect.
