Let Song Matchmakers Network connect you to top industry people!
Song Matchmakers Network, created by Frances and Harry Date in 2009 is a one-stop music licensing and music publishing company. We offer opportunities for artists and songwriters from all over the world to have their songs represented by a Nashville publisher. We place music from all genres in movies, TV, and commercials. For artist pitches, we specialize in country music.
We created a catalog of music by up-and-coming artists, bands, composers, and singer/songwriters that is pitched to major artists, TV shows, feature films, games and commercials. We also offer opportunities for our writers to submit music for specific projects through our Song Search program. This creates a win-win situation for us and for the artists/writers in our network.
Being songwriters ourselves, we know how hard it is to write that magical song, so we decided to champion the cause of those great unknown songs.
We listen, evaluate, administer song agreements, process music clearances, and catalog your songs. We also put your songs on music supervisors’ websites, pitch your song to projects, negotiate and issue song licenses, collect the royalties, and register your song with the performance rights organizations.
Through Song Matchmakers Network, you can take advantage of the wide array of connections we have established with music industry people—working to place your music with artists, movies, TV, commercials, and many other media to generate revenue for you.
Song Matchmakers Network’s publishing companies are Silk and Denim Music, BMI; Denim and Silk Music, ASCAP; and Heels and Boot Music, SESAC. We are members of the Association of Independent Music Publishers, Nashville Publishers Network, Women in Film and TV, Nashville, and The Harry fox Agency.

Song Matchmakers Writers Programs
Each song accepted in the Song Matchmakers Writers Programs will be placed in one of two programs: Gold and Gold/Silver.
Gold Program - Songs are pitched to major country labels for major artists or to an artist on a label with major distribution. They are also pitched to mid-size and smaller labels.
Gold/Silver Program - If you own the master, have the wav vocal mix, track mix, and the vocal release, we can also pitch the song to movies, TV and commercials.
Search our Song Catalog for that special song you’re looking for. We’ll also advise you when great new songs have been signed to the program. Tell us what you’re looking for, and we’ll send a search notice to the writers in our Writers Program. Contact us at SongMatchmakers@Comcast.net
Want to record a song from our catalog?
If you would like to record one of our songs, please request a mechanical license by contacting us at SongMatchmakers@Comcast.net. Track leasing is also available on many songs.
The Mechanical License is the right to “mechanically” reproduce or distribute the song via a fixed medium or digital sales. The royalty rate is 9.1 cents for each unit sold. Example:
1,000 units - $91.00
2,000 units - $218.00
10,000 units - $910.00
You can lease the pre-mixed tracks of our original songs and save a lot of time, trouble, and money. Why spend hundreds of dollars in a studio with a live band recording new tracks? Listen to our male and female catalog and contact us for a license for the songs you want. Not all tracks are available for leasing. If it is, it will state: Track Leasing Available.
Track leasing is available for: demo, showcase performances, CD’s, Internet sales, and live performances.
