We’ve had a range of high profile song placement projects that have seen songwriters, producers and publishers flock to the site to submit their demo tracks. This has resulted in a lot of quality songwriters, producers and publishers signing up to Music Gateway and we now have even more quality songs available for your artists.

If you want to connect with these songwriters and hear their songs then all you have to do is create an A&R projectA&R Projects also have a special On Spec tool which allow you to quality control pitches and bring people into the Workspace without committing to signing their songs. Not only is setting up a project completely free but it is also not a commitment – if you don’t find the song then you don’t complete the project.

Here’s a couple of their current projects if you’d like to take some inspiration before you get started:
