In today’s hard-to-get-recognized music business, when a new artist is breaking onto the scene, labels often suggest a cover song be included on their debut release. This ensures that listeners already have some familiarity with the music. To maximize this tactic the song selection is crucial.

David and Goliath Music BMI, a new website platform for original songs, music & lyrics, was officially established in 2010 by me, David Simmons, a musician, songwriter and business man living in Baltimore Maryland. I was a guitarist and principle writer in circa 80’s rock group DC Star. My writing partner Ray McCrory and I penned most of the group’s material including “Is It You?”, “Fortuneteller”, “Stop the World From Turning” and over 100 other songs.
