About

We connect the aspiring songwriters from around the world with singers & musicians

BeatMySong.com connects the talent of lyric writing with musicians and singers. In this way we create new songs with people from all around the world. An awesome dream!

We give lyrics writers a platform to share their work with the world and introduce them to the world of music industry. For musicians it is a great chance to create their own songs and get their music on Spotify. We are therefore welcoming you to generously support this campaign and help us get this project started on a full scale.

How it works

In the future you can upload your lyrics to BeatMySong.com. In this way you share it with the world. A world of musicians! Those who are inspired and are capable of doing, transform it into an unique song. They add the recording to your writer profile. In short: 

The main idea is that you challange musicians to make a song of your lyrics. So multiple versions are conceivable. The more songs you generate, the more popular your writer profile will be. As a result musicians will even challenge you to write new lyrics for them. In this way we facilitate you an inspiring writing career.

The best songs on Spotify

All 'born' songs can be listened to the platform and our YouTube channel. We start a contest, allowing musicians to surpass each other continuously. Every period the best new songs will be released on CD, vinyl and Spotify. The winners are based on three top 10 lists:

Be the best. Become a famous songwriting team and get your song(s) on Spotify!

Proposition

We will give rise to many amazing songwriters and will play a major role in making their dreams come true. Every songwriter or poet has a dream to listen to their song sung by a band or a singer. This project will do just that by inviting writers to send their written lyrics and then, it will challenge singers or bands to sing that song. Moreover, it will cover every genre ranging from Rock music to Hip Hop. Ultimately, the project will inspire many songwriters to formally start their writing career in the music industry and will give them a kick start that they need.

Stage of devolopment

We already have a website but it is not a working platform yet. Through this basic website we explain the idea and our intented concept. By starting this crowdfunding campaign we want to validate whether this concept is good enough to convert into a dynamic online platform. 

Why Kickstarter

Because you are here. You like writing, you love music! We understand.

To realize the platform we need €50k. Planned investment:  
  • 2k Start up costs (legal, organizational, R&D etc)
  • 20k Website development
  • 18k Marketing 
  • 5k Recording first winning songs 
  • 5k Publishing first winning songs: CD/vinyl releases and get the music on Spotify.

By achieving this minimal required we are capable to make an exciting start. We have a thoughtful business plan to optimize the platform. If useful we build an app as well. 

Our time path (in green where we use your backing for):

Rewards

As a backer you get the first best-made songs on CD (€15) or vinyl (€20). An unique and limited edition! You now get € 5,- discount (later in our webshop the CD will be €20 and lp €25). 

Why back this project?

Everyone knows people who write beautiful poems or lyrics. It might be your friend, child, neighbor, cousin or maybe it's you. Millions of these creative writers never shared their writing arts. Let's make them proud. A pride they deserve and stimulates them never stop writing. 

We make it easier for songwriters to write their songs. Every musician or singer, who finds it difficult to create lyrics, can be inspired by Beat my Song. In this way we offer unique new songs to the world. 

It's fun. Maybe your song will be discovered. Maybe you score a number-one hit. Stars will be born on Beat my Song. 

It's real. Everyone can participate. Bad and great singers. Genius musicians will arise. From country to pop music. In every possible language. It's all inspiring and authentic. 

It's you. Your written lyrics and your written music are shown to the world. If you're not a musician or writer, we deliver you new songs on Spotify.

You like writing. We love music.

Do you believe in this project? Do you believe in the power of songwriting together? Or do you even hear the first melodies already? Then you like writing, you love music and you admire our vision: making it easier for musicians to write their own songs.

Do you feel our rhythm too? Congratulations. You've just become an amazing investor! Thank you for Kickstarter backing. 

We promise, we dance, we write and we sing: to turn your support into a fantastic platform. Let's make new music together!



Risks and challenges

The risk of good lyrics with bad music or vice versa.

No worries. If we raise the target amount of 50k we can develop a the platform. There is no risk of failure. After all, as a backer you deserve an amazing platform!

The challenge is to optimize the platform within three years (our goal).

Another challenge is to release our first CD and vinyl before January 2019. We are convinced that this is achievable.
