About Melissa Bollea

Owner – Rhyme Partners

Melissa Bollea is the founder and owner of Rhyme Partners. A unique publishing company run by songwriters Melissa Bollea and Bill DiLuigi. Together they have penned more than 70 songs to date with artists, television series, major motion film and commercial brand ads. This summer they added 4 new writers to their “Summer Romance” writing roster.

Most recently, they landed the National Campaign Ad for the largest western and work wear retail chain, The Boot Barn with their song “Dress Up This Town” which was also released as a single by artist Mary Sarah this summer. Dress Up This Town is now being used exclusively for the companies advertising outlets on radio, Television commercials and social media.

Rhyme Partners currently has a top 40 hit on music row charts called “Running Out Of Memories” recorded by artist Amber Hayes. To date they have had their songs in series like “The Hart of Dixie.” Queen Lattifa’s VH-I show “All The Single Ladies” and they have even graced daytime television with a song featured in “The Young And The Restless” last Fall.

When Melissa moved To Nashville to pursue her Songwriting career in 2006, she landed a front desk position in the production studio of the cable video network GAC, Great American Country. For nearly three years she cultivated strong industry relationships and learned an extensive amount of knowledge about the music industry.

She also worked along side her mentor friend, publisher and long time A&R executive Spoon (Jim Williams) of Spoons Tunes for many years before starting Rhyme Partners. Her relationship with Spoon remains one of her most valued and treasured, as he was and still is, a big champion of her songwriting career often calling on her to write with some of the best new artists in the industry. Spoon was instrumental in setting her up artists like Rion Paige, Tara Thompson, Bonnie Tyler and so many more. Bonnie Tyler is an icon of the late 80’s with hits like “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” “Footloose” and much much more. She proudly penned a song with Bonnie Tyler and Bonnie Baker called “One Mistake” which Melissa says was honestly, one of her favorite Nashville moments.

Rhyme Partners has been twice nominated for Covenant awards and looks forward to continuing to ride this amazing wave of success from handwork, dedication and perseverance.

About the Publisher Online Pitch Event

Have you ever thought: “Wow I think I have a really good song. If only I could get a legitimate publisher to listen?”

Through GSC’s affordable Publisher Online Pitch service you can have your song or songs heard by a reputable publisher from wherever in the world you live and without the expensive cost of travel.

One of the most important elements of this service is that you will be connecting with a publisher, creating a relationship with this publisher and learning the pitching process professional songwriters utilize every day.

Here are the details!

  • This online music event is open to members of Global Songwriters Connection
  • Members can take advantage of the “Listen Only” option for only $20 before pitching a song.
  • This event is limited to 30 song pitches.
  • Once you purchase the POP event you will receive a confirmation that will contain your step by step instructions for logging into the webcast.
  • If you purchase a song pitch, you will need to email your song in mp3 format along with your photo (jpg format only) and lyric (Microsoft Word format only) to [email protected] by 11am the day before the event. (Please list your name and where you are from on the top of your lyric. GSC wants the publisher to connect with you.)
  • Guitar vocals and keyboard vocals are acceptable. You do not have to have a full song demo for this event.
  • The publisher will only listen to the first verse and the chorus of your song.
  • The publisher may or may not comment on your song. This event is not intended as a publisher evaluation service; although in most cases, the publisher will offer constructive advice.
  • This is a real music publisher online pitch opportunity. The publisher will either PASS on your song OR he may choose to keep your song for further consideration.
  • You are encouraged to stay involved in the webinar while all songs are listened to and here is why:
    • Out of respect for the other participants.
    • Should the music publisher choose to comment on a song, you will learn from what he has to say.
    • If a publisher takes a song, you will want to connect with that songwriter and possibly co-write with that writer.
