About
Electronic Musician. I work on Logic Pro on a Mac computer. I make songs -- the beats, chord progressions and melodies. I don't feel comfortable writing lyrics yet, so that's why i'm looking for a lyricist. I'm probably my own worst critic for lyrics. I have tried working with writers before, years ago. One writer only wanted to do hiphop/rap. Another writer I worked with, his lyrics were so dark and depressing (almost suicidal). So my attempts so far haven't been so great. I compose/track all genres of music -- mostly EDM, pop, house, synthwave (80s synth sound) disco, rock, trance, dance, country. I am NOT looking to produce anyone. I have my own music, it just needs lyrics. That's it. Oh, and I am not 70 years old :P I just keep my real birthdate to myself -- it's no ones business!
