‘The Songwriter’s Guide To Taking The Next Steps’, was written by John Mathis to help aspiring songwriters answer the question, “I write songs, now what?”. Drawing from his experience and observations as a songwriter and music industry professional, John has observed that most songwriters believe “It’s all about the song”. Most non-songwriters in the music industry are mentally conditioned to see BRANDS.

Half the battle of doing something with your songs, is doing something with you. Building your brand! The other half of the battle is realizing you don’t have to pursue the traditional methods for placing songs.

The Songwriter’s Guide To Taking The Next Steps is available in ebook and paperback forms.
