Now hear me out.. I have no issues with groups that aren't Self Produced and I Completely Like Such Idol Groups.. My Issue Comes With Idol Groups Who are Marketed As A Self Produced Group where a member or members write their songs and produce songs but when u see the credits table u get to see 4-5 songwriters and 4-5 producers credited alongside 1-2 members of the group. This just raises a big question in my mind that if a song has literally so many writers credited out of which hardly 1-2 are actual members of the group then how is it self produced? Idol groups are marketed highly with the TAG that they are self produced and even the most popular ones are marketed that way but when u look at the music credits it's literally a long list of outside producers and songwriters credited alongside one member of the group. I mean is this really self production then? Or is it just for namesake. I am completely fine if a group isn't self produced as long as their songs are good. But why to add the tag of making their own music when it seems like it's not entirely true. Only a very few kpop groups are truly self produced and true gems. Rest idk seems like a big hoax.
PS : no hate to any groups. Just trying to state something I felt after seeing the song credits of lot if kpop songs
Hey everybody, my name is Ricky Montgomery. If you know me, it's probably because of my solo music, my music with The Honeysticks, or maybe even my old vine account.
I've been making music and videos for pretty much my whole life now, and recently that started paying some serious dividends after a couple of my songs blew up on TikTok a few months ago. I just put out a music video for the biggest one, ‘Line Without a Hook’, that you watch here: https://rickymontgomery.lnk.to/lwahvideo.
Those TikTok songs brought me from never having any label interest to having nearly every single major label try to sign me at the same time. It was an absolutely insane process, which I am happy to talk about. In the end, I decided to go with Warner Records. Now, I'm navigating this next unprecedented stage of the career. Currently, I am working on my second solo album.
I've also done a lot of other stuff, including starting and/or cofounding several social media marketing businesses on the side to pay the bills while I pursued a career in art. I don't do that anymore, but would be happy to talk to anyone curious about that side of my life, too.
Ask me anything!
EDIT: Alright everybody, I'm gonna get back to work now but this was a lot of fun. Thanks for all of the great questions, hopefully I've been able to offer some insight for some of you who were looking for advice. Let's do it again sometime!

Title. Has to be Luis Miguel or Jorge Negrete for me(xico).
[No hate to Rosé or the other songwriters of OTG]
I've seen most of the time when people talk about OTG's lyrics, both in positive and negative ways, they tend to say Rosé wrote it and she is such a ... songwriter. How do you know that? OTG has 6 songwriters, Rosé is the last one on the songwriting credits (if you don't know the order of any credits goes from who worked the most on it to who worked the least). Therefore, if we are generous, she wrote maximum a little bit less than 1/6 part of it.
It doesn't mean that the song is not about how they feel, but it's not their words. So you can't really analyze what they meant in that 1 line, because they most likely didn't write that line.
I don't think that it really matters in the most time, who wrote the song, but don't pretend that others didn't work on it bc that fits your narrative.
I guess I wasn't clear enough. I meant from what I see, she is already written down as a ... songwriter based on OTG.
It's not a bad thing and it doesn't make a person less artist if they don't write their own songs.
Also, I'm sorry if it's came up like I try to bash/discredit Rosé. OTG definitely feels like it's her song, but it doesn't determinant what kind of songwriter is she.
Sorry English is not my first language
Hi everyone, BURNS here! My new EP "Loving Touch” is out now. I’m excited to talk with you guys and answer any questions you have. Ask me anything!
James ("Jim") Anthony Sullivan was born on August 13, 1940 in San Diego, California. Sully, as he was often called by friends and family, could always be spotted in a crowd: at 6 foot 3 inches, he had played as the quarterback on his high school team. He was the seventh son of a Nebraska farmer, who (like many others) moved to California after the 1930's Dust Bowl.
Sullivan first recalled meeting the love of his life, music, after listening to local blues groups. At 16, he had purchased a Sears Silverstone guitar and amp. After high school, Sully had began to play with a local band called The Survivors. Throughout this, he had met the other love of his life--a woman, named Barbara Sullivan--when she was in junior high. Her sister, Kathie Doran, was the lead on the band's vocals.
By 1968, Jim and his wife decided that they needed a change of pace. They had a seven-year-old son named Chris, and their careers were steadily gaining traction. Barbara landed a job in the Capitol Records tower, while Jim gradually became known in show business, constantly writing songs and playing on his guitar. The family moved to L.A. for greater opportunities, and Jim began performing at Lindy Opera House, the Lighthouse, and the Raft in Malibu.
In 1969, Sully's friends in the L.A. scene pooled together their money and invested in Jim. They wanted to push him to finally articulate the album they knew existed in his head. Called "U.F.O.," Jim's album features folk, country, and rock with a spiritual connection throughout the lyrics. Jim had always been reported to have a strong belief in mysticism, enough to where other musicians took note. The album came out on their own label, Monnie Records, named after the daughter of one of the investors. Many people within the show business scene at the time worked hard to promote Jim Sullivan's new album and label, some even travelling as far as Nashville to see Johnny Cash's manager to play him Jim's music.
In 1970, the album was remixed and reissued by Century City label with new artwork. They tried to... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi! I'm Luna Shadows - artist, writer, producer, synth player, and cat mom. My debut LP "Digital Pacific" was released on 2/12. DP is an abstractly autobiographical concept album about the intersection of my online world and my analog life in Los Angeles. It's sequenced like a Californian road trip, occasionally weaving in and out of the digital realm. I made most of this record in my room - fun memories include recording all my own vocals and art directing over Zoom with my buddy Brad Hale from Now, Now (also my co-producer). For fun, I enjoy skateboarding, gardening, re-watching "The Empire Strikes Back," and petting my cats. In my spare time, I'm a touring synth player for The Naked ＆ Famous and a vocal producer (most recently, Ella Vos ＆ Chelsea Jade). Ask me stuff!
