PITCH TO PRO PIPELINE 

... NEW OPPORTUNITIES! ...
 

... March 30 2017 ...
___________________________________________________
JUSTIN DAVID


Sarah Ross - Looking for up-tempo country, hick-hop, girl anthem,

high energy fun summer songs!

Trailer Choir - Looking for country songs about could beer, living

the good/bad life and partying!  Listen to what they have done in the past. 

These guys are writers themselves so you will need to write something
above the bar!

Any songs Justin likes on these two acts will go directly to Noah Gordon!
___________________________________________________

TED HEWITT

Mathew Ewing
Still looking for Christmas songs!
He will be cutting an entire CD (10 songs) and wants originals!  Songs can be

fun/sassy or serious and/or
Christian (religious themes).  They will cut as soon as they feel they have all

the songs they need.  Mathew is
also looking for songs for his next country project!

Kenton Bryant - Mainstream country artist with a rock and roll edge! 

He's a good writer but is open
to cutting outside songs!

Rodney Atkins - Ted  is always on the lookout for a huge hit! 

May cut more songs in the future!

LEIGH REYNOLDS

Country Artist
Leigh is currently working with a male artist who is a great singer with a unique voice! 

He has previously had radio success as part of a group.  Songs for him need to be

interesting and different with real life lyrics, ranging from fun to deep and thoughtful. 

He is also a songwriter, so your song needs to be as strong with just a guitar or

piano vocal as it is with a full production!

"We plan to start recording when we have what we feel is undeniable material!"

**********
Contemporary Christian
Leigh is listening to songs for a Dove and Grammy Award winning male Christian artist! 

The songs should be fresh musically and lyrically with a strong message. 

This artist is one of the best, most soulful, anointed male voices out there, so try and

think what would excite and challenge him to sing your song!  There is always a

need for up-tempos that are different!

SHERRILL BLACKMAN

Always Looking For...



Country:  Sherrill wants writers to think lyrical depth 'ala' "Live Like You Were Dying" or

"The House That Built Me" but in a mid- to up-tempo rhythm/beat!  Melodies need to be

fresh and contemporary.  Sherrill needs songs of substance!  So NO bro-country,

drinking, pick-ups, or tailgates, etc.

Bluegrass:  Sherrill always needs Bluegrass, but it needs to be authentic, honest to

God, true Bluegrass!  No "fake-grass" or "country that could be bluegrass if they

produced it that way"!

Christian Music:  Sherrill doesn't need straight ahead Gospel, meaning Southern

Gospel (like old fashioned quartet) or Contemporary Christian right now.
Country Gospel works!

No matter what genre, the lyrics need to have substance!
Dig deep to find unique/fresh ideas to write about!

"Please stress to your writers that I do not need or want any slow songs (ballads)!"
