Question: How does one make an earned living as a lyricist? Also, how can someone get
their songs published?
Answer by

Nuri Amir's response:
Get a guitar! Lyrics with out music, is not a song, it's a poem, as Cuba Gooding Sr., lead singer of the Main Ingredient(not his son Cuba Gooding Jr., the actor) once told me when I was pitching him a song. The only way you make money as lyricist is if you can get an artist of substance to sing one of your songs. Or find a hot producer to team up with. Get a guitar and write some songs, then perform them yourself at these songwriter cafes. Two good things ahppen at these places. One, you find out pretty quick how good or bad your songs are, and two, you meet other up and coming songwriters. In the music business networking is the key. To get a song published all you have to do is copyright it and perform it in front of somebody, lol, it's published. Now to get paid by a publisher, or to get a publishing deal, an artist of substance has to perform your song. If that happens you won't have to find a publisher, they'll find you. You'll have publishing companies coming out of your butt to give you a deal. Key point, copyright everything.
