After all, we have to fully believe in a song to pitch it as though it were one of our own.

I have been on the writing circuit for more than 15 years, with seven of that being on a professional level. After several years having songs pitched through the Publishers and Pluggers I was signed with, I decided it was time to take control of my own path and pitch through my own company. This was the start of NKTR Music Group. We offer very reasonable rates and are looking to take on only a select few additional writers. We currently pitch material for three writers and have had three placements since beginning this new journey in 2011. Two have been within Canada and one with an Alabama based artist.
This is a business of relationships and I would never expect, nor would I want anyone to dive in without knowing anything about this company or our future goals. I wanted to put the offer out there and if anyone would like to know more please feel free to get in touch with me through the address on the site. I am more than happy to give you a call back or talk through email.

And as far as song plugging goes, it is a service that people pay for. The song pluggers that are good have contacts and knowledge of the current needs of the industry, so it is worth the money to get into the circles they can get you into. However, there are a lot of people who *don't* have those "ins" to the business but will be happy to take your money for "plugging your song" -- they can legitmately say they have made phone calls and dropped off CDs on your behalf, while not being effective at all.
I have no knowledge of NKTR and they may very well be one of the effective plugging services, you need to do your own due diligence on that. But it's not inappropriate for a plugging service to expect a fee. If you're having success pitching on your own, great, more power to you and good luck. But the idea of a plugging service is not automatically a suspicious one.

You are an overexcited little man with a need for self-expression far beyond your natural gifts. This is not discreditable. Neither does it make you an artist. (from TRAVESTIES by Tom Stoppard)
It's a nice song. But where's the chick? (Frank Sinatra, according to Dave Frishberg)
