Producer's Statement

"With the absence of our previous vocalist/lyricist, I am seeking singers/lyricists to work on a plethora of projects for publishing/artist pitches. I'm attempting to diversify the company and utilize as many singers/lyricists that I can with the work I have put together. I have a large catalog of demos and partially complete tracks, along with a few that the music is pretty much done.

I have access to a few world class producers including Dave Snow (Faith Hill) and Stu Epps (Led Zepplin/Oasis/Elton John). All recording will be done for no cost here in Manhattan.

I have a collection of workable tracks on a dropbox/soundcloud for any prospective interest. All lyrics/vocals/music can be reworked for any particular song, nothing is set in stone.


Also, if you don't find anything you like in particular but want to write something fresh, we can certainly do that, I will just need a sample of songs (preferably 3) that you like so I can get a feel for the style that you want me to write. Easily done.

For each full-band track, I plan to make an unplugged/acoustic track and if applicable, a club/dance remix (already have one in process for the next release). I plan on releasing all the tracks I do with each individual artist under one "CD" on itunes and other online distributors as "Exit 22 (Featuring YOUR NAME HERE)". You will need to sign up for ASCAP performance royalties collection to get money owed to you when the track receives payment for plays on radio, etc...

If you are just a writer and prefer not to be recorded for a professional track, not a problem - I can hire someone to do our vocals and you will still get your writers credit/payment.

If interested, please reply with your Name, website/demo and some information on yourself. Looking forward to some amazing collaborations and songwriting success."
