Hi Ari..im about to get a song ive written licensed by a fair sized publisher ...but just lately i have been really churnin them out..and im wondering if you could advise me on the pro's and cons of goin it alone..? By that.i mean self publishing.I reckon i could write 12 fair quality songs a year..some only suitable for an album..some better..but im not Charlie xcx.who is writing.just about the highest earning songs out there.or Bruno Mars..who writes quite a lot of hits for others.I just dont like the idea of sharing that much..if one could possibly do the job ones self..or do you think.they are worth it ?..Thanks Jacky.
Hi Jacky, the biggest asset a Publisher has that you don't is the connections. Check the publisher's other writers and the track record. I DEFINITELY recommend getting someone to license your music for you. You need connections to get songs placed. Publishers have that.

How does a beginning singer songwriter begin? Like, they don't have enough plays and press to get other press interested in reviewing, but how can they get that without press reviewing? It's a catch 22.Ari Herstand (Ari's Take) responded on 08/05/2015
