Songpreneurs are innovators.
We started out back in 2010 as a place to help songwriters figure out how to make real progress in the music industry.
Founder Amanda Colleen Williams had been writing for major publishers in Nashville for almost ten years, and had realized that the industry had changed - and that it was time to adapt.
Napster had blown the lid off the traditional music business's way of making money, but songwriters were largely trying to go about business as usual, sticking their heads in the sand or worse.
Writers were losing their staff writing deals, and were leaving town by the hundreds headed back home to seek stable jobs and other ways of making a living.
So instead of quitting, or accepting another dead end publishing deal making less and less money every year, Amanda put together a team of entrepreneurs and built the Music Publishing Company called Hillbilly Culture LLC.
We launched the first website back in December of 2010 under the name "Hillbilly Culture Club" and without advertising or soliciting, songwriters from all over the world started signing up to receive the individualized help offered by our innovative team.
Others soon followed, and by 2012 there were several new songwriter help sites available to allow songwriters access to the resources of Nashville based groups.
This was all part of the plan, and helped to fulfill the mission of bringing quality songwriter education to aspiring songwriters around the world, and to bring an educated, motivated group of songwriters into the new millennium of music business.
We have been hunkered down doing the work.
Now, after 7 full years of working closely with small seed groups of songwriter entrepreneurs, helping them to develop their original artistry on their own terms, and providing them with the highest quality innovative services, we have re-launched the Songpreneurs.com website to benefit an even greater number of people.
Because we have worked so closely with real songwriters like you, not only those who are just starting out, but also Grammy award winners and career professionals, we have been able to develop a proprietary system that pushes every songwriter to his or her personal measure of mastery and excellence.
Whether your goal is to write a song on a #1 Chart, or to simply finish a song, we have resources available to help you.
We care about you, because we believe that songwriting is one of the most important activities a person can do. It's not only a way to make a living, or just some extra income - it's a way to communicate, to improve your mental and emotional health, and to share your knowledge and unique perspective with others.
