About
My wife and I have been writing songs for over 30 years. We have a home studio that we use to record demo's of the songs we have written. Our weakness is writing good solid lyrics. We are looking to collaborate with a lyricist who writes interesting, solid story songs with strong hooks. Our favorite genre is Folk but are open to Country. We are only interested in working with serious minded artist that want to hone their skills. It is important to understand, we will only work on lyrics that inspire us. We will not change your lyrics and you will not change our compositions.
