Better Fit For You: Song From Scratch or A Foundation
Without digging into the details too deep, you want to quickly know the difference of the two options in the simplest terms to help decide which route is best for you. Well, you’re in luck.
Share your stories, feelings and memories and select your song’s mood, genre and your vocalist gender during the Song Creation Process. We hand curate the best artist from our community to create a totally new song from scratch. The instrumental, melodies, lyrics, verses, choruses, and song title will be unique to you and heavily influenced by your information and selections.
End Product: A completely original, new song that nobody else has. It’s completely yours and was made from the ground up influenced by you, just for you.
Browse and select a song foundation that fits your style and occasion. Answer a few questions during our Song Creation Process and the artist that created your song foundation receives your submission and writes and records two personalized verses based on your unique story.
End Product: A song with a pre-existing chorus and instrumental with 2 personalized verses based on information you supplied. Others may have a similar song with the same title, chorus and instrumental but your verses will be key to making the overall song feel like your own.
In the end, both options help you create an incredible song that brings your unique story to life. It just depends on how personal you want the song to be. Each option has its benefits, so we broke down some key factors that may help in your decision on which route is better for you.
When is building a Personalized Song From Scratch A Better Fit?
You want something that is truly one-of-a-kind and yours.
A song from scratch is unlike any song that exists on the planet. The title, chorus, verses, instrumental, and melodies are all created based on your shared stories and selections.
You have a lot of details and stories.
If you have a lot of details that you’d like in the song, a song from scratch is a better option. Your songwriter has a larger canvas to work with as opposed to building from an existing foundation. When building from an existing foundation, your artist is limited on space and can usually get around 5-10 details in the song depending on the specific details and artist.
You can’t find a Song Foundations that you absolutely love.
With our song foundations, you are limited to what is available. Each foundation is limited as each artist can only personalize a limited quantity at a time. Along with that, you need to find one that really speaks to you. If you are not finding a song that speaks to you, building a Song From Scratch may be a better route for you.
Your occasion is not featured in our foundation songs.
We have song foundations for our most common holidays and occasions – weddings, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, birthdays, Bat Mitzvahs, Bar Mitzvahs, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation, memorials and songs for soldiers. If you are looking for a song foundation for an occasion outside of those listed, there may be a few that can work but your options may be a bit more limited.
