  • We know there are some rising young stars out there, but, you must be at least 18 years old to work with CustomSong.com (sorry!). 
  • We do accept bands from all over the world, but please be aware that all songs must be performed in English unless there is a special request from a customer you are able to fulfill.

How does the process work?

  • A customer will submit the details of their custom song request to us and let us know which artist(s) they are interested in working with. If you are requested or an open song is available, you will receive an email notification letting you know there is a new order ready for you to claim. 
  • Once you accept an order, you will create custom lyrics based on the information the customer provided. Once the lyrics are complete, you will provide them to the customer for their approval and then, once approved, create the final custom song. If you need to talk to the customer during the process, you can message them through your Custom Song artist account or let us know how we can help with the order.

What are the song requirements?

  • Custom songs must match the criteria and information specified by the customer. The completed songs must be a minimum length of three minutes (0:03:00) and cannot include more than 25 consecutive seconds of music without lyrics. There should not be more than a total of 1 minute of music without lyrics.

What username can/should I use?

  • Create a unique username for your account. The only restriction is that it cannot be a trademarked word/phrase or an actual person’s name other than a person in the band. Keep in mind, that this username will be what the customers see so be unique and show your personality!
