DON’T BE AFRAID TO PITCH TO NEW ARTISTS! ~ I was blessed to have 2 ‘solo writes’ on debut CDs. One was “Life’s Too Short to Love Like That” on Faith Hill’s “Take Me As I Am” CD and the other was “Mudslide” for Neal McCoy’s debut CD “No Doubt About it” for Atlantic Records! Both these albums were certified multi-platinum!
Sandy Ramos is the Songtuner. Her songs have appeared on over 25 million CDs, having been recorded by the Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill, Lee Greenwood, Neal McCoy, Anne Murray, & Kenny Rogers and many others. She has had multiple ASCAP writer and publisher awards as well as Billboard Top 5 & 10 hits and a #1 Dance hit with “I Brake For Brunettes” recorded by Rhett Akins.
After every major female artist in town passed on “Let ‘Er Rip,” I dropped a copy of the song to producer Blake Chancey who immediately put it on hold and then cut the song on the Dixie Chicks “Wide Open Spaces” debut CD! I am so grateful for all the passes we got on this song.
“As a producer, I’ve heard a LOT of hit songs from Sandy. Not only is she a great writer, but over the years I’ve known her, I’ve known Sandy to be a lady of integrity. She truly has a gift in working with new, developing songwriters & artists in bringing out the best in them and always has their best interest at heart”
“Sandy is a great songwriter, I’ve had the privilege of recording 5 of her songs and co-writing with her”
