Why Songwriters Love SongDoor

At the heart of it, it's because we care. We're here to help make you a better songwriter by giving you free opportunities and tools toward that goal.

Right behind that, it's because what we offer is a tremendous value. We're not here to make money; the entry fees and evaluation service cover our expenses, which we try to keep very low. That's why, year after year, people come back to SongDoor.

GOT A YOUTUBE VIDEO OF YOUR ORIGINAL SONG?

We're looking for original music videos to consider for broadcast on SongDoor TV. New videos are broadcast Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

A few simple rules, please:

  • The song must be original; no covers or re-interpretations of public domain music/poetry.
  • Live performance videos must have decent audio and a short (<5 sec.) or no spoken intro.
  • We accept live, acted or animated (moving) videos vs. a static slide.  Lyric videos are fine.
  • No hate speech or slurs, explicit lyrics or lyrics that glorify violence, death or destruction.
