It wasn't too long ago that in order to get a song produced, you had to have the lyrics, the music, the band and a singer. Then, you had to rent studio time to cut the record. While this is still possible, there are many ways you can go about getting a song produced and even more ways to promote it. If you want to get into the music industry, here are just a few options to getting a song produced.
Apps and Programs
If you have the lyrics written, there are a variety of apps and programs to create the music to go with it. They allow you to create the sounds for each different instrument separately and then blend them all together. If you have also written the music, and have the instruments and someone to play them, you can record them yourself. If there are mistakes you can easily edit them out and replace them with perfection. Of course, there is going to be a learning curve for using the program, but once you have it down, you can create whatever you like.
Perhaps you have the music written for one instrument, or you have been singing a melody you created but that is as far as you have gotten. There are many professional music companies that will take care of the rest for you. They will write the music, write the lyrics, play the instruments, or even add in the vocals if needed. You contact them with as much as you have and let them take care of the rest. Of course, you will be involved throughout the entire process and have the final say over the end product. Keep in mind that the cost to you will increase with everything you need to have added. It might be better to advertise around town to find a few people to go in with you on the project.
Once you have the song produced, you can do your own marketing and promoting. Social media is a great way to get started. Make sure you upload the song so that anyone can listen to it. This way, the friends of your friends' friends can enjoy it and pass it on even further. Also, create your own channel on one of the streaming platforms for even more exposure. The internet provides a great method for getting your song created and out there to the public; take advantage of it.
For song production, contact a company such as Lamont Audio.
