I have an exciting (and hopefully interesting) update for you! This is about a company I’ve partnered with exclusively and what you can expect from me in the future.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that I’ve been a freelance session singer for a long time. I truly love what I do and I love writing about it as well.
One company I’ve worked with for years was called SongCat. I’ve watched it grow from a relatively small organization into Tunedly, a well-oiled song creation machine. Last year, I became a project manager with Tunedly and took on a larger role in addition to session singing. I want to tell you about the new direction I’m taking and more about this company!
Joining Tunedly Exclusively
I am now offering session singing, project management and mixing exclusively through Tunedly. This means that if you want to work with me in any of those realms, this is where you’ll find me! I’ll answer a few questions you might have here, but if you have any others please feel free to ask!
First, What is Tunedly?
It’s basically a virtual recording studio where you have access to a team of musicians online. There are certainly other platforms where you can hire session musicians, but Tunedly differs in that it’s more of a ‘group’ setting. This way, everyone communicates with each other on a project and you get to see where we are in the process every step of the way.
Why Did You Join Tunedly Exclusively?
I truly have nothing against other platforms. I just feel that Tunedly is such a great team of like-minded professionals with a passion to create awesome songs. As both a session singer and project manager, I’ve gotten to know everyone and I know how the company works. I love and believe in what we do and I’m excited to grow with them.
What Does a “Project Manager” Do?
I plan on writing an entire post about this because it’s a lot to explain. However, in a nutshell: A PM takes the song from idea to completion. We organize all of the session musicians and their schedules, and we make sure the projects run smoothly. We are also the go-to if there are any questions, concerns or issues with a project. This has become one of my favorite roles because I get to interact with each person and keep the ship sailing! I knew I was a sea wench in a past life (even though women were thought to be bad luck on ships, I’m sure I did fine).
What Does This Mean For Your Blog?
Nothing at all. I’ll still be writing weekly and continue my projects and research into music-related topics. If anything, this might inspire some new posts. Other than that, same ol’.
What Does This Mean For Your Original Music?
Not much (although I’ll be using Tunedly for some of the work on it for sure!) I still have songs in progress and I’ll be posting them here when they’re ready!
Are You Going to be Really Annoying About This and Cram it Down Our Throats?
Nope, I promise. The only times you’ll hear about it are a). If we have any new announcements to share, or b). If you contact me and want to work with me, I’ll refer you to Tunedly. I’ll also update my About page and my Contact page in order to save everyone time wondering how to contact me. (It’s email@example.com, in case you’re curious. You can also write me at mella@MellaMusic.com if it’s unrelated to working on a music project).
If I Want to Work With You, What Do I Do?
Head over to tunedly.com and set up an account. You can explore the site and see if you feel like it’s a good fit, and you’ll find me in the lists of Project Managers, Singers and Mixers. You can also go directly to my profile page here!
I’m excited for this new chapter in my life and I hope to see you there. Again, feel free to ask any questions about it and I’ll be happy to answer!
