Songwriters have many choices when deciding where to cut song demos. Options range from creating a simple guitar vocal on your smartphone to doing a full blown track that costs thousands of dollars. Some say, “A great song doesn’t need a full demo,” but the reality for most songwriters is that a professional, well executed demo says that you are serious about your work, and shows the song is it’s very best light.

The following demo samples were tracked and mixed by Kelly Schoenfeld and sung by our crew of pro demo singers.

– Competitive prices. We pride ourselves in offering our customers the best quality at great prices. Owning our own studio gives us an edge when it comes to pricing, so you get a great value.
– Producing matters. With each song demo, Kelly provides a pre-production session (phone, Skype, e-mail) in which he will speak to you about the direction you envision for your song. Kelly’s songwriting experience comes into play as he offers suggestions and tweaks on the material as needed. He also talks about instrumentation to make sure he hires the right players for the session. This is a key part of getting the results you want on tracking day.
– High Level Engineering makes a difference! In many studios you get an intern who may or many not be experienced. In every session at Kelly James Productions, Kelly is at the helm as engineer, and he brings the experience of over 70 million records sold to every track he works on.

– Charting is included with each song demo, so the song is ready to go in the “Nashville Number System” format.

Kelly is a master at producing vocals and together, they bring your song to life. Each of our singers also add excellent background vocals that give extra fullness to the track.
– Mixing is an important step in getting the finished product that POPS! Kelly draws upon his experience to create demo mixes that usually sound like records. We get a tremendous amount of feedback from our clients that Kelly’s demo mixes are the best around.
– Files are sent to you and you will own 100% of the content. We don’t take any rights to the song. If you want to use the track for anything other than demonstration (demo), you must speak to us since that is considered a Work for Hire and requires an extra fee and paperwork from the musicians.
