According to Billboard Magazine, for songwriters, 
Finding that perfect cowriter is a lot like dating. Now, there's an app for that! 
Listen to my chat with Kevin McCarty to find out about a phone app for new and veteran songwriters who want to find new co-writers. Kevin and his co-founder Richard Casper have created a real game changer, available for iPhone and Android. It's called 'We Should Write Sometime'.

Topics we covered include:
  • Kevin explains what this app does.
  • How using this app for meeting new songwriters saves time and energy (you can cut way down on the bar and club hopping!)
  • How the app helps you investigate potential collaborators before reaching out to connect.
  • The development of the app (they developed it before Covid!) and how timely it is now.
  • How virtual co-writing can actually be better, safer, and freer for creating songs.
  • Ways this app can benefit not only new songwriters but also veteran pro writers who want to reach the new wave of artists as well as different collaborators for fresh fire.
  • The incognito aspect of using the app.
  • Where the app is live now (US, Canada, Australia and more to come).
  • Some of the added benefits of co-writing (instead of writing solo).
  • Things songwriters don't know about the business (PROs, licensing, publishing, etc) and how that information could be a future feature in the app.
  • Ways the app can be used safely and securely.
  • How to get on this app. By the way, it's free! Future premium tiers will be eventually be developed, but Kevin says they want to keep the highly functional basic version free.
