  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s a tip about splitting up the songwriting credit if you write as part of a team or a band. Since the only parts that officially define the song are it’s melody and lyrics, unless a band (or team) gets together and decides to share credit in some different fashion the person or persons who come up with the lyrics and tune are the writers.
