I am a partner and director for an independently owned songwriter's services company called Songwriter's Portal International LLC. We are an International songwriter's services and publishing company with offices in multiple locations in the continental United States. Working with Songwriter's Portal gives me the opportunity to place songwriter's material in front of music industry professionals.
My job is to help music professionals achieve their goals while having adequate representation along the way. I do this by staying current on music industry opportunities.
The backbone of Songwriter’s Portal A & R services is Co-Owner and President, Cam Wilson, simply known as "Cam". Cam grew up in Los Angeles County, CA in an entertainment family, full of Songwriters, Musicians, Producers, Screenwriters and Entertainers. Growing up in the entertainment capital of the world is not the most traditional life, but it sure was fun, states Cam.
Like many rebellious teenagers in L.A., Cam spent a great deal of time in West Hollywood sneaking into the Roxy, The Whiskey Go Go, and later in the 90’s, Viper Room on Sunset Blvd. He used his family's connections to rub elbows with some of Rock & Roll’s royalty and developing his ear for music.
At 18, Cam was making the weekly trek between Seattle and Los Angeles, helping the launch and spread of the Grunge movement. As time moved forward Cam developed his skill set in Music Marketing, taking three startup companies and turning them into multi-million dollar organizations. Cam is up to the challenge in helping songwriters reach their potential with Songwriter’s Portal. His thoughts are, “You shouldn’t have to live in LA, New York, Atlanta or Nashville to break into the biz. It’s all about innovation, technology and good old fashion hard work.
I’m an advocate for the little guy, the underdog. I’m here to Challenge the status quo. It shouldn’t cost writers hundreds of dollars a month to have their songs plugged or having to sign away a percentage of their royalties. I was fortunate enough to grow up with some great mentors in the entertainment industry. I learned early on in my career, it’s not so much who you know, but more important, who are you going to know! That statement stands even truer today in the music industry. Just look how it’s changed in just the past 5 years.
My mentor taught me, “As your environment changes and you don’t change with it, you will soon be extinct. At Songwriter’s Portal we are using innovation and technology through the use of algorithms to match writers to opportunities and it’s working. It all starts with a great song. We hope you join us and allow us to play a small part in your musical journey..
Cam Wilson - President of A & R.
I work for songwriter's like you, folks who are tired of companies who don't keep you informed on the status of your song submissions. We never charge our songwriter's a commission on their songs unless they have us handle the publishing.
I am the co-owner of Songwriter's Portal. We have multiple locations and two professional recording studios. I treat our songwriter's as I would want to be treated. "Integrity" comes to mind.
Whether you're just starting out in songwriting, already established, or in between, you deserve access to the best support available.
