"I loved the songs that were sent, the timely manner they were sent in and the quality of the audio. You don't find many people willing to take their time with you and find out your specific needs. It's  nice to know that not only are you out there to make money but to make friends along the way."

"..a great presentation!  Very professional. The lyrics for "She Gave Her Heart to Elvis" are wonderful..."

How It Works The Details

If you are looking for top quality, original music for your next recording project, then you've come to the right place!  Here's how a song use typically works: Once you sign the mailing list , we'll send you a free sampler CD of full songs and you give them a listen.  Simply choose the song(s) you want to record, and email us  with the title(s) and the type of use you require (Demo or Commercial CD Production).  Once we receive your request we'll supply an agreement for you to sign.  Your signature will legally allow you to use the song as defined by our contract.  Note: If you are under the age of eighteen, your legal guardian will have to sign for you.

We have a large number of professional quality songs that we will license to you for demonstration or promotional use, free of charge.  (For the complete details see Must Have Music's Production Service)

However, if you intend to put them on a CD/Cassette that you plan to sell (as opposed to a demo tape that will be given away) we require that you obtain a license from us and agree to pay the current statutory rate.  The current royalty rate as of January 1, 2000 is 8.0 cents per use for compositions that are 5 minutes or less; for songs over 5 minutes, the rate is 1.45 cents per minute or fraction thereof of playing time, whichever is greater. (that's a grand total of $80.00 per song for 1000 units).  For manufacturing rates of less than 1000, we ask that you pay that cost in advance in order to minimize the accounting, and that you agree to notify us prior to the manufacture of any more copies of the CD/Cassette .

Be sure to sign the mailing list, and include in your email, what type of use you require. If you want to use our DemoTrax, there is an additional charge. (For the complete details see Must Have Music's Production Service.

Your music is really amazing, I think.  I listened to your CD again yesterday and have to say I'm REALLY impressed.  Especially "Let Your Poor Heart Bleed" is an excellent song. The lyrics are GREAT!! So I know you're definitely the right man for me to work with!!
