One of my long-time hobbies has been composing songs. Many years ago I even had two songs appear on a cd, but I didn’t really have time to do more with it then.
For Parnassah reasons, I would like to see if I can sell any more of my songs now, but have no idea who to contact, and who may be interested.
Any ideas how I can take this further?May 1, 2016 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #1151156flatbusherParticipant
Why not try some of the people advertise for simcha performance. I imagine someone who has recorded a record could guide you.May 1, 2016 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1151157zahavasdadParticipant
You need to put your songs on some sites (I dont think itunes takes everyone, but other sites do)
and then PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE and get people to download your song
Be aware the market for jewish music is small and most of the money is made on the “simcha Circuit” meaning weddings and Bar Mitzvahs etc.
The only musician who really made it from the jewish music was Matisyahu. People like Avrham Fried makes his money from the simcha circut, not his CD’sMay 1, 2016 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm #1151158nishtdayngesheftParticipant
Maytisyahu did not really make from Jewish music.
But there are other frum Singers or musicians who have done well such as Alex Clare or Andy Statman (A true world class musician who performs with a yarmulka and his tzitzis out).May 1, 2016 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #1151159Shopping613 🌠Participant
It sounded as he did not sing but just composed from the OP.May 2, 2016 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #1151160TheComposerMember
Thank you all for your replies. Shopping613 is correct. I’m not interested in becoming a singer, I’m looking to sell my songs to others who are.

Contact already established wedding singers and find out if they are interested.May 2, 2016 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #1151162–Participant
Contact already established wedding singers and find out if they are interested.
Even in cases where a performance license is required, it is the responsibility of the venue owner, not the performer.May 5, 2016 12:02 am at 12:02 am #1151163SayIDidIt™Participant

The standard procedure is to record a demo and send it via email to singers and producersMay 6, 2016 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm #1151165chacha5Member
Zev7 is exactly right, I have first hand proof.
