by GSC Reporter, Daniel Reifsnyder Dan Reifsnyder: Hey, Stella! Thanks for sitting down with us today. How did you get started in music? Stella Prince: I’ve known pretty much my whole life that I was meant to do this. If I go one day without singing or songwriting I feel like a little part of me is dying inside. I’ve always seen music as the love of my life. It’s...
Write different subject matters other than just love songs!! Publishers tell us that one of the best ways for songwriters who are NOT signed to a publisher to get noticed their songs is to be writing something DIFFERENT from what their staff writers are writing and turning into them every day. Write songs about different subject matters–anything other than just love songs. Publishers receive tons of love songs and love...

GSC member & Pro-Writer JEFFREY EAST’s song “Time Is Cold” #1 on Country Coffeehouse list! We are so excited for you Jeffrey!
Jeffrey inspired us last week with this post: “Last night, I woke up (again) freaking out about my career. I wish I could say that was an isolated incident but, unfortunately, it sometimes comes with the territory of being a creative...and being one during a pandemic doesn’t really help the situation. Plagued with the all too familiar thoughts of “why don’t I have a ‘hit’ song yet”, “where’s my record deal”, or everyone’s favorite “what the hell am I even doing with my life”, I went to the living room, took some deep breaths, read a little, then laid back down and eventually fell back asleep. This morning I woke up to a phone call and some really good news that I obviously needed to hear. Then, I decided to check the ole streaming numbers on my @spotifyforartists app and discovered that the first ballad I ever released, “Time Is Cold”, is at the top of the Country Coffeehouse playlist. Then, I remembered that my other 3 ballads are also on that playlist. Then I realized that just by putting myself out there a handful of times with music that I truly love REALLY is making an impact to someone, somewhere. I’m saying all of this to remind myself and all of you reading it that what you do, no matter what it is, matters. Celebrate every victory no matter how big or small it may be. Chase that dream like there’s no tomorrow. Move to LA in the middle of a pandemic if you get the urge. Whatever that next step is for you, just freaking take it and don’t let yourself get bogged down with the things you haven’t yet accomplished, but rather enjoy the things you have and remember that every journey is different. I’m thankful to all of you that have been a part of mine thus far. We’ve only just begun.”

NEXT WEEK!!! Thursday, January 21st, @7pm! GSC online POP Event with DANIEL LEE of Altadena!
What Daniel is looking for: Consider the artists that he works with and if you have a song that would be a fit. Send songs with different subject matters. Send your very best tempo pop, pop/country and/or strong country songs that are well written songs. He makes success HAPPEN. Play that “door-opening” song that you know gets results. Daniel is one of the most personable and humble yet direct and honest publishers in our business.
