What Are Song Pluggers?

April 9, 2017

Very few songwriters have the required connections with music industry professionals to get their songs heard by music producers or A&R reps at the record labels. Unless you are a hit songwriter with a huge track record of radio hits, you need someone who can make that connection for you.

This didn’t always used to be the case.

How the music industry used to work:

Years ago, many songwriters trying to find their way could walk down to their local independent music publishing company and get an appointment with a staff song plugger whose job it was to get cuts for the company. They were also the ones responsible for developing and signing new songwriters. When I moved to Nashville, these song pluggers would actually sit down with you and give you advice on how to make your song stronger.

Getting your song discovered isn’t so easy anymore

Unfortunately, due to the ever shrinking number of independent publishing companies, these opportunities are quickly disappearing, making it almost impossible for an undiscovered songwriter to even get their music heard and into the hands of people who can get their songs recorded. That’s what the The SongTuner’s Pitch to Pro Pipeline is all about. It’s not just a simple yes or no: it’s feedback from real music industry professionals to let you know if you’re on the right track and if you’re not, why.
