About
I am a lyricist . While I do have classical music training my leanings are towards words and stories. I was recently a finalist in the 2015 International Song Writers Contest in the Lyrics only category for my song Daisy Chains and Satin Dolls.I believe my songs fit well into New Country, I think in terms of cross over rock, blues and sou. l have an online collaborative catalogue of hundreds of songs. I want to connect with a singer/producer/band that would like to work with me to develop strong story based lyrics. I am completely open to co-writing and artistically flexible. I have only recently in the last year decided to write songs. I consulted with Molly Jenkins and later Clifford Goldbacher. then submitted a couple of songs. to get Semi Finalist in The International Song Writing Contest Lyrics Only Category.
