Songsalive! Songnotes December 2022 🔥🎄🎶🥂 - Happy Holidays! & Check out our new look on Songsalive! Backstage


Greetings and Happy Holidays to all the wonderful songwriters and composers around the world. We truly appreciate you in our musical lives, and ours in yours!

And welcome to another edition of Songsalive! Songnotes > our monthly newsletter for everything you need to know about the craft and business of songwriting.  In this edition, we talk about our Members' Songsalive! Backstage go a new makeover, as well as RSVP for January 15th Songsalive! Song Critique Workshop (Song Sessions). We also have some Song Leads to whet your musical appetite (what about a fancy song cut or synch to end the year hey?) All below, read on!


Songsalive! Happy Holidays 2022

Songsalive! Backstage is getting a makeover

For our Members, we hope you have been enjoying our awesome Songsalive! Backstage Portal which is also a Mobile app which gives you many opportunities as a songwriter/composer, including a main feed to post in the community; Songshop to pitch songs to leads in tv, film and advertising; Watch 24/7 videos-on-demand of our Master Teachers/Guest Speakers from the Music Business; get song critiques any day of the week from your songwriter peers.. and so much more.  You may have noticed a few changes on the Backstage Portal. Our hosting site, Mighty Networks, has made some internal changes to their software design, which included rolling out a new feature called 'SPACES' on all their community pages. Feel free to watch this video from our App Hosts, Mighty Networks to learn more. With this update, the layout of our Backstage portal has changed but all of our previous content, posts, and groups are still there!

So What’s Changed on Songsalive! Backstage with 'SPACES'?

👉 Your Navigation Bar in the Songsalive! Portal has a few more additions - login to and find your navigation bar on the left. Note: You must be a Songsalive! Member to access the Backstage Portal

 👉The HOME Space is our community and resource hub where you can interact and chat with members, make posts to the community, and find all of our content and resources (i.e. songshop leads, Songcraft videos, etc). 

👉 Engage in the HOME Space with #Hashtags - Find your favorite content (i.e. songshop leads, Songcraft videos, etc) and make posts in the HOME space using Hashtags   

If you have questions, having trouble navigating the portal, or want to give us some feedback on the updates, reach out to a team member on Backstage for more support.
