About
I have been writing and recording songs for probably 30 years. I constantly have music streaming through my head and, to my wife's consternation, it is frequently vocalized. I believe my strength is writing songs, including melody, not lyric writing, although I have a few completed songs that I'm somewhat happy with. My songs frequently include lyrical ideas that are not completed. That's why I need a lyricist. I am 68 years old and my primary remaining goal is to be known as that old codger who wrote a billion selling song that baby boomers (and everyone else) buy so that I can provide my wife with a Tesla.

Hello Jim,

You and I might be more of a match than in just music... I like you sense of humor!

I’m a lyrical writer with a surprising number of country songs in my catalog, especially for a guy that’s never been on a horse! Below, please find my posting:

275 songs in catalog, or I’ll write just for you! Strong rhyme schemes, tight, poignant, adventure topics. I’m a freak about lyrical rhyme cadence. (Genres: Country, Folk/Roots, Celtic, Christian, Rock) Favs: Prine, T.T. Hall, Cohen, Lennon/McCartney, Taupin. I’m a serious, responsive writer… and I hope you’ll think that I do it well. Support background: I’m a semi-retired marketing executive, served on the faculty at the RI School of Design, published 3 children’s books and played in the RI Highlanders Pipe & Drum Band. Easy to work with, rapid response and fun! Compensation is not a driving factor, split 50/50 if revenue streams. Member BMI and Songwriters Guild of America. Remember, it costs nothing to chat!
