What is a Song Pitching Site?

A song pitching site is a website that makes it easy to find new opportunities in the music industry and allows you to submit your music to those opportunities. A good pitching site should (in theory) save you massive amounts of research time and also cost. A good pitching site will enable you to reach (or connect) with more industry professionals and expose your music to more opportunities.

There are, however, good and bad pitching services and more seem to spring up all the time. Research carefully before jumping in with any of them.

Pitching sites do work, there have been numerous bands, songwriters and artists who have signed deals as a result of using a pitching service so they are well worth joining if you are serious about your music career.

Pitching sites generally do some (or all) of the following:

  • Aggregate opportunities within the music industry making it easy for you to see which music companies are looking for talent
  • Provide a way for you to submit your music to the music companies who are seeking talent
  • Enable you to store your music online
  • Offer it’s users an Electronic Press Kit (EPK)
  • Allow communication between you and the music professionals you submit music to
