I just put up my first song for sale on (= I will loose all rights to the song)


The website put the price 250 euros (!!!)

I mean i have released 20-30 songs on spotify, itunes etc etc... and earned around 70 euros in 5 years.

If i sell one song i will earn the same amount as the streaming income for 20 years!!! That is if i sell the song...

So have you guys tried any of these pages/ghostproducing and made some cash?

The first rule of ghostproducing is to not talk about ghostproducing! :lol:

Oh yea noomy, I'm not sure about the contract for that company but for me I can't show people the music I'm selling on the site for obvious reasons.

Is that a serious site? or another meme to use on the webs just because? [A question I ask before clicking the site later after I go to sleep and check it out later]
If that's legit, no more fucking memes. :lol:

I can't speak for the site nooomy linked but I've sold many tracks on edmghostproducer.com. It is the most popular website that I know of and I haven't tried any others.

If you preview some of the tracks currently on there and think you can offer similar quality, just send in your tracks for review.

Today I found out a co-worker dresses up in a costume like a superhero and patrols the streets with other costumed peers to fight crime. You can do anything you put your mind to.

I really don't see the point...

I don't mind writing songs for other artists. I don't mind artists and performers who don't write their own songs.

But why do it anonymously? It just feels wrong.

To be honest, there's several levels of this. The "ghost producing" term has turned into something people can purchase for instant success while they maintain their DJ carreer, OR, a shortcut into popularity as a newcomer.

I've been associated with labels who need productions for up and coming vocalists/songwriters/bands who needed productions. I have had catalogues of finished songs waiting for the right vocalist or performer. These productions has been sold as exclusive full-right material for no less than $8.000 a piece, with the most expensive production being $13.000.

Don't get lost in the ghost production jungle. If you're in it for the cash, there's alternatives - The common denominator is that regardless of what you do, pursue the art of actually improving. If you at some point realize that the commercial side of things sucks, then do music for the right reasons instead: Being creative and expressing yourself regardless of what people like. If you're creative and put your mind and feelings into writing exactly what you want to write, you'll get that cash-success anyway.

Fame is what fame is, fortune is super-duper subjective :)

I stopped doing this a few months ago to focus on making music for myself which I actually care about. The money was nice, but only short term and certainly not worth it for me in the long run.

I've considered this. I have done ghost producing for a few clients, but would like to do a lot more of it!

I would also know more about sites like the one aeox mentioned, how is the average price, how fast do they sell and what style of music did they actually sell there?

That is good man. I remember I copped that Not A Real Album some time ago. Looking forward to hearing more stuff from you.

I imagine anything that is being played at the mainstream festivals. Any genre with the word Future in it? Future House, Future Bass, Future Trash, etc. I might be sooo last year though.

Pop artists and rappers can have ghost writers. Otherwise I think the closest thing to ghosting in instrumental music is hiring session musicians in a project which could be fairly obvious.
