Hello, I'm a very versatile and prolific lyricist having penned over 3000 lyrics in a variety of genres. I'm seeking someone with a great voice who plays guitar and/or piano to create songs to place with major artists. Ideally, you'd have a way to lay the songs down in a home studio.

Skynyrd is one of my faves and I'll be in attendance at their farewell show when they hit Virginia. I live in Maryland. I've included a sample of work below. My name is Joel and my cell is 703-898-0401.

Southern Born

I don’t make no excuses
And I don’t apologize
I don’t need no poker face
These southern eyes don’t tell no lies

I’m not scared of brawlin
But lovin’s more my style
I love them southern peaches
They sure do make me smile
Man, there’s no finer fruit (spoken)

Southern born
Not the east, not the north or west
I’m southern born
There ain’t nothing wrong with the rest the US
But it’s southern pride swelling up my chest
Southern born, I’m southern born

My pick up truck ain’t no SUV
Just like my shotgun it’s a part of me
I’m a productive member of the working class
Show me respect or watch your ass

Like Skynrd said, we don’t need Neil Young
You know the name of that song he sung
We’ve come a long way from those bygone days
A Southern Man is here to stay

Southern born
Not the east, not the north or west
I’m southern born
There ain’t nothing wrong with the rest the US
But it’s southern pride swelling up my chest
Southern born, I’m southern born

I don’t make no excuses
And I don’t apologize
I don’t need no poker face
These southern eyes don’t tell no lies

I’m not scared of brawlin
But lovin’s more my style
I love them southern peaches
They sure do make me smile
Man, there’s no finer fruit (spoken)

Southern born
Not the east, not the north or west
I’m southern born
There ain’t nothing wrong with the rest the US
But it’s southern pride swelling up my chest
Southern born, I’m southern born
