Songs Needed:

 

Dear Songwriters and Publishers:

 

This summer we are recording a full CD project for Toni Henson Slade, an independent artist from Georgia.  We are looking for 10 original songs, and will be taking submissions immediately.

 

Toni is a CCM/Adult Contemporary artist, and has a powerful and very versatile soprano voice.  She has an ongoing Christian music ministry that is geared toward encouragement and inspiration.  She and her husband, Lance also have a ministry called Project Giving (see http://projectgiving.net/index.html), helping those in need in their area.  

 

 

For the recording, we in need of the following:

 

1.  A couple of POWERHOUSE songs in the vein of In Christ Alone or Arise, My Love,  with key changes, lots of building, and big sustained endings.  She likes the fullness and style of Chris Sligh's In the Moment and Empty Me.

2.  Thoughtful, reflective, inspirational ballads - oriented for piano and string arrangements

3.  A couple of black gospel songs along the lines of Freedom Song, by Mandisa

4.  We are not looking for praise and worship songs at this time, but artist songs.

 

Please submit songs ASAP, in mp3 form, with a lyric pasted into the e-mail.  YouTube videos are acceptable as well.  Please send to:  jeffnjenny@me.com

 

Also, feel free to spread the word to other writers and publishers.  We appreciate your submissions.  If your songs are selected, we will notify you, and ask for the publishing information, and mechanical license information.

 

Thanks for your help!

From Naima Johnston Bush-

Grace and Peace!

 

One of my artist mentor's  is seeking songs for her debut EP.  She is seeking inspirational/contemporary Christian music.  She is an older artist so we are seeking songs of a mature nature.  Artists similar to Susan Boyle, Sandi Patti, or even Amy Grant.

I've attached a video of her so you can hear her voice and see her style.  If you have a song you would like to pitch please forward it to me with an MP3 and a lyric sheet.

 

Thanks so much!

Fellow C.S.M.I members,

 

I am just a songwriter. Unlike most of you, I am not able to play live or record top quality demos, so I am asking for your help. Mr. Schmidt has been kind enough to post this link. www.americansongspace.com/bobbieroberts .There are 10 songs located here, if any of them strike a chord with you, please drop me a line at jack.sprat85@gmail.com

 

Changing of arrangements to fit your personal style is fine; the words are the most important thing to me. I believe some of these songs could really reach a lot of people.

 

I look forward to your comment or questions. Thanks for listening.

 

Sincerely,

 

Bobbie Roberts
