About
Writing lyrics is a serious hobby. I have been writing lyrics for more than 20 years. Aside from developing the concept, I enjoy editing and rewriting. I have melodies for most of my lyrics, but I do not write music. I am looking for composers who can take my rough melodies and finish them to enhance the lyrics. I am not ego driven in this endeavor, I am looking to work with composers who have the same attitude to write the best song possible. My ultimate goal is to demo songs and sell them. I am also looking forward to the collaborative process.
