“In an era when the unrepresented songwriter has limited access to the established music industry, Ditty Pad is a great place for like-minded artists to share music and lyric ideas, as well as make friends and find contacts,” said George Bradshaw, Ditty Pad Founder.
Here’s how is works: Songwriters sign up at dittypad.com, where they can upload up to five songs at a time. By requesting and reviewing other members’ songs, their own submissions are in turn fed into the Ditty Pad community for peer review. This cross-pollination leads to friendships formed, songs improved and exposure generated. A real-time “Top Ten List” on the homepage promotes the highest-rated songs.
“It does little good for you to only play your songs for your dog,” added Bradshaw. “He or she uncritically likes everything that you do.”
Rather than focusing on connecting unrepresented songwriters to industry insiders, like many of the fee-based companies in the online music space, Ditty Pad is a platform for improvement. Ditty Pad helps songwriters help themselves by connecting them to equally passionate songwriters, who upload their songs, provide thoughtful critiques and trade knowledge about their craft.
The ultimate goal of Ditty Pad is to provide songwriters with a good-natured and educational experience by offering the expanse and convenience of social networking while providing a platform for improvement, recognition and opportunity.
