This is a sad country waltz. Written by Amanda L. Ball and Karen Ball.

I’m working to get enough *finished* masters to move onto the next step of music promotion. Ultimately, my goal has been to have other artist record my songs. I am content being behind the scenes, as songwriter, publisher, etc. But, once recorded audio started working out (it blows my mind that after so many years of trying this is now working), then maybe….maybe…I think that I can perform my songs well. I can emote them. I can convey their meaning. I wrote the song. I can *sell* the song-and by that I mean the performance of the song.
So, what is the next step? How do you get played on independent radio (probably internet radio. Terrestrial radio is so corporate controlled you’ll never break in there.) How do you get played on Pandora? How do you list items on Itunes and Amazon? So…those are steps I’ll be tackling next. It’s just like everything else: book writing, playwrighting; acting; etc….figure out the steps; try one thing and try another; make course adjustments. I want to explore licensing these songs to advertising/TV/movies. It all can be done, but like everything else…it takes time.
So, if anyone has navigated these waters, please share your stories.
