DEMO YOUR LYRICS

Please Note: This promotion is for ‘Lyrics Only’ entries only. Enter your lyrics into ISC’s ‘Lyrics Only’ category for a chance to win a demo recording session with Pearl Snap Studios.

  • One overall winner will be selected and awarded a Standard Package and Melody Writing (if needed). Pearl Snap Studio producers will infuse the song with up to five instruments to deliver that “full sound” you hear on the radio today. The package also includes a vocal track and background vocal from an in-house vocalist. Additionally, if your song doesn’t have a melody, a professional songwriter will craft an original melody to complement your lyrics. You keep 100% of the copyrights! 
  • Nine runner-ups will be awarded a Basic Demo Package. This includes a simple demo with one instrument (normally a guitar or piano), a vocal track, and a background vocal (if needed). Please note, this prize does not include the option of melody writing, but that service can be included for an additional fee.
  • The winner and nine runner-ups will also be awarded a one-year free license to MasterWriter, the most powerful suite of songwriting tools ever assembled in one program.

INSPIRE YOUR SONGS

Three winners will be selected from the promotion and each will be awarded a mobile recording studio (Spire Studio from iZotope), vocal production software (Nectar 3 plugin from iZotope), and in-ear headphones (LCDi3 from Audeze). These are perfect tools to help you capture your song inspirations whenever they arrive.
