About
I have loved writing since I was young - (always promised myself that one day 'I'd write that book')...Well having now been lucky enough to retire early and have time on my hands, I've discovered that writing for another prolific passion of mine - Namely MUSIC, seems much more fun, so I'm giving it a go. I consider myself a good lyricist who pays attention to alliteration, good hooks and telling a story in my songs....I'm (currently) unable to write/play the music to my tracks, HOWEVER I am in the purgatory world experienced by many lyricists, where I can clearly hear the melody & rhythm etc to my songs inside my head (This is how I develop and write most of my material) but a unable to write/play the actual score. I'm therefore looking to team up with an understanding musician/producer who I can collaborate with to take things forward. I love nearly all genres of music and as I have progressed in my lyric writing, I am finding that my song styles are reflecting this - So far I have written songs suitable for Pop, Indie, Rock, Metal, Swing and Soul tracks, all of which I enjoy. Thanks for reading - Here is a link to some of my lyrics, currently listed with Songbay > https://songbay.co/portfolio/50564/
