So Ed, you think you're a songwriting expert or something?
I mean, I don’t have all the answers. I don’t know everything there is to know about songwriting. I’m not some magical guru or songwriting wizard with the power to fix our broken world.
But I have been around the block a few times. I’ve been a musician and songwriter for more than twenty years. I’ve worked on over a hundred creative projects. I’ve lived on two continents and visited thirty countries. And I’d like to think that all taught me a thing or two.
I created The Song Foundry to start passing some of that on. And as long as there are people out there who find what I create useful, my plan is to keep creating it.
Is Ed available to speak at an event or run a masterclass?
Yes – I’m always interested in opportunities to speak to or work with new people. Sometimes I’m limited by my schedule, but if you have an idea for an event or masterclass, let me know via the contact page and let’s see what we can fix.
I have an idea for an article that's gonna blow your freakin' mind. If I tell you it, will you write about it?
Absolutely. Use the contact page to let me know.
There are already dozens of articles on the site though, so please do a site search first to make sure the article you’re suggesting doesn’t exist yet.
I wrote a great article. Can you publish it?
By all means get in touch to tell us about it, but you should know we don’t publish guest submissions very frequently.
Hey Ed, I wrote a great song. Can you tell me what you think about it?
It’s always great to hear from The Song Foundry community, and if I’m not up to my ears in creative projects I’ll do my best to answer your general questions.
If you have specific questions about the songs you’re working on, the best way to get feedback (and my undivided attention) is by booking a one-on-one session via our coaching page.
Can you get me an agent? A manager? A record deal?
I created The Song Foundry to share great songwriting ideas, because that’s my passion and my area of expertise. If you’re looking for advice on the business side of songwriting, I recommend you check out some of these books or visit one of the many music industry blogs that exist out there.
I noticed a mistake on your website. Can I tell you about it?
Sure – please do. We try to keep this site looking fresh, but accept that occasional typos, broken links and factual errors are all part of our beautifully imperfect world. Send us an email via the contact page and we’ll do our best to fix it ASAP.
I have a really great product or service and I'll give you a mountain of cash to promote it. Is that cool?
You’re welcome to let me know via the contact page. I’m often glad to tell our community about products and services I’ve used first-hand and think our site readers will find useful.
In your message you should let me know about what your product is, how it might benefit our community and whether there’s any time constraints on us dealing with your request.
