How Do You Know Your Song Is Ready To Pitch?

"Believe it or not, not all artists write their own songs. For various reasons many of them “cut” songs or even sometimes buy them outright from songwriters that pitch songs to artists.

When an artist “cuts” a song, it means the songwriter and artist or label will enter into a contractual agreement that allows the artist (or label) to license, record, and release the song, either as a single or on an album. The term “pitching” — sometimes called “plugging” — is when the songwriter submits a song to an artist or artist management through various methods including publishers and professional song pluggers."

Get some tips from this great post recently shared on the DIY Musician blog, on how to ensure that your song is ready to pitch to an artist.
