SongwriterLink: Get Matched With Songwriters

SongwriterLink is the newest of the three with an open invitation to join their private beta.

According to the official announcement, SongwriterLink:

"uses matching engine technology – the same kind that dating websites use – to help users find exactly the type of songwriters they’re seeking for collaborations."

"The site can match songwriters with composers, lyricists, topline writers, and beat producers. Users can conduct a search to find a co-writer by specific genre, or let the site match them up. Once a match is made, the collaborators can start writing songs together immediately through video chats and file sharing."

SongwriterLink is a project of recent Berklee-grad Lisa Occhino who developed it with help from Berklee's Business Startup Initiative. Occhino is also the Managing Editor at Sonicbids.
