Step 1: Locate your target act.

If you don't already know the artist personally, you'll need to do a little sleuthing. Many performers have webpages listed as <theirname>.com. If that doesn't work, Google their name in "quotation marks" and add the terms 'home page' and 'songwriter'. H

Their webpage should contain a 'contact info' link. You can approach them by e-mail, but a phone call makes a better introduction.ouse c
