It’s a common notion that publishers are extremely hard to impress and to get through to. You could spend years performing in publisher rich areas and send them tons of recordings without them ever noticing you. The reason for this is not that you aren’t good enough; it is simply due to the fact that thousands of other singers are doing exactly the same thing and the producers are over flooded by music samples. A great alternative way to get yourself noticed or perhaps even make a great career out of singing is by doing self-publishing so you can generate your own gigs and sell your music yourself while you wait for your big break.
