You don’t put songwriter to build a bridge!

No you wouldn’t put a songwriter to build a professional road bridge (a bridge in a song is another story) because they don’t have the education to do it. To put it around you don’t put an engineer to write professional songs.

It seems like people just don’t take it seriously. These songwriters have taken years and years of training. Also many of them have gone on a 2 to 3 year education on schools like Musikmakarna. And in most cases they would never try to apply for a job on a construction firm to be an engineer without skills.

But here I get hell of a lot of people (engineers also)thinking that shuffle around a song is an easy task. Actually there are a lot of things that has to be thought through. So when I get songs from untrained people they usually already from the beginning contains structural errors. And usually they are not that updated on the styles (read they send me Eurodisco from 97).

The climate today is so hard. It’s not like when Max Martin started, back then there was just take whatever you had. Today you are against very skilled and updated songwriters that really work hard to get into the market. So for me I feel I just got a staff that knows what they are talking about and deliver in high speed what I need.

So if you feel that you have what it takes, quit your day job, get to school and then start to send to our teams. This is a highly skilled profession.
