Songwriting, Production & Recording
Hire a Songwriter
While many of our clients send us fully written songs to produce, most send us lyrics, poems or a recording of a-cappella vocals, to which we write a completely original new song from scratch. We produce your song the way you want it following your specifications. Any style, any tempo, any instrumentation: you name it, we’ll make it happen! You can also hire our songwriters to improve your melodies, rewrite song sections, give songwriting suggestions, and more.
Hire a Lyricist
Writing lyrics is an art form. It’s already hard enough knowing what to write about, let alone being able to word the story in such a way that it matches the melody and touches your listeners.
That’s where we come in. If you have songs laying around unfinished because you can’t get yourself to write or finish the lyrics, let one of our lyricists help!

Hire a Producer
The music producer develops and oversees the whole project, and coordinates all the people involved to get the best possible final result.
Whether you like pop, rock, country, dance, hip hop, singer songwriter, folk, jazz or classical, you name it, we can produce it. We’ve produced many hundreds of songs in any style.
Hire a Musician
Our experienced, Berklee and Conservatory trained session musicians are seasoned pro players who have played on numerous albums and productions. Let them add their magic to your songs. Any instrument you can think of: a funky clavinet, a jazzy upright bass, a dreamy sax, synth, organ, strings,… you name it!
Hire a Vocalist
Our seasoned session vocalists have toured (inter)nationally and can be heard on various albums. They perform a wide range of musical styles. Hire them to record lead and/or backing vocals on your songs or projects.
Listen to samples You can choose a preferred vocalist. We can also make recommendations.
Hire one of our mix engineers to further improve your song’s mix, or to mix your project from scratch. Mixing is included with our recording packages, but you can also hire a mix engineer as an individual service to mix or remix your already recorded songs.
Add this to your order and we make your song radio ready. Mastering is the next step in improving the sonic quality of a recording after mixing. You can add this to a package to step up the audio quality of your recording, or hire one of our mastering engineers as an individual service to master your already produced/recorded song.
Extra Post Production
Additional song editing, stems, remixes, etc.
Fact: the better the quality of the lead sheet you give to your band members, the quicker they will learn and the better they will play your new song. Poorly written chord charts are a major time waster in rehearsals. We can get you professional lead sheets of your song, including melody, chords & lyrics. It’s also exciting to see a transcription of your song on paper. You could create extra revenue selling sheet music of your songs.
Burn & Send Discs
For a small fee, we can save you the time and hassle burning CD’s of your song. You can have CDs burned and sent to you.
We have graphic artists on staff to create professional album artwork. You get artwork free if you choose to co-publish your song with us. If you have an album or songs already recorded that you need artwork for: our graphic artists can do it for you.
Extra Arranging (for more elaborate 3 or 4-part arrangements)
You have a song you already produced or recorded or that you are looking to record, and you want to add a full fledged horn section, or a full string arrangement, or 3-4 part backing vocals. We can write and produce the arrangements for you. We can also record them for you at our studio, or provide you with the charts so you can record the arrangements in a studio and with musicians of your choice.

Backing Vocal Arranging
If we learned anything from watching 50 Feet From Stardom, it’s that backing vocals can make a song!
Publishing & Promotion
Let ZOT Zin help you get your song heard! We offer two Publishing & Promotion options.
With co-publishing, you split your copyright 50/50 with ZOT Zin Publishing, and in return, we master your song and market and distribute it. We help you register your copyright, post your new song registration on ASCAP, create artwork and distribute your song on all major digital music distributors (iTunes, Spotify, etc.).
Of course, you may always choose to retain all rights to your song when hiring us to develop it. This is a “Work for Hire” arrangement, where you simply pay for services, and you retain all the rights. Publishing and promotion are not included in a “Work for Hire” arrangement.
2. As a Separate Service
Publishing & Promotion may also be ordered as a standalone service. If you have a finished song waiting to get out in the world, hire us to publish and distribute it! It could generate sales for you!
