Why won’t a pro write with me?

Tips & Resources by Brent Baxter on May 03, 2017


I know it can be frustrating trying to land a cowrite with a pro songwriter. I've heard writers ask before, "Why won't a pro write with me?"

The question you might want to ask yourself is, “Why SHOULD a pro write with me?”

Remember, you are asking for at least half a day with a writer who has limited time and who is trying to keep a gig in one of the most competitive industries on the planet. Every day he or she says “yes” to someone is a day they say “no” to everyone else. This is not to say that pros never write with non-pros. They sometimes do. But when they don't, it's usually nothing personal. It's business. Part of YOUR job in this business is to position yourself to be one of those people.

Good luck!
