About
I'm 26, I'm a french guy living in Bordeaux and my songwriter's name will be Monsieur Candy here ! I've always been obsessed with music and I write songs / lyrics for quite a while now. Although I believe in my talent as a songwriter, I'm also aware that I still have a lot to learn, and as a perfectionist I'm always willing to improve. Collaboration is for me the key to great music, I think we are stronger together, and we can make better songs happen if we join forces!!! I'm a nice person, quite reserved by nature (introvert) but also very enthusiastic when it comes to my passion. I work full-time as a nurse for now but I'm serious about music and my dream is to write songs every day for mainstream artists and make a living from it. See you soon :)

Songwriting Achievements:
I've written dozens of song's lyrics that are waiting for collabs to bring them to life ! Most of them have no melody yet, but I crafted them counting the syllabs of each line to make sure they are symetric (= melodic math).

My lyrics are :
- Written in English (except two of them that contain French)
- Arranged in popular & successful song's structures
- Using specific rhyme schemes for each section
- Mostly love relationship oriented (the good part, the bad part, or the ugly part)
- Inspired by real-life personnal experiences or conversations

I learn on my own, by analyzing hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100, reading acclaimed songwriting books and blogs, watching famous songwriters interviews, etc.

A lot of ideas/concepts are also waiting to be developed in songs ;)
Personal Songwriting Goals:
Turning my lyrics into amazing songs with the help of wonderful songwriters / composers / beatmakers, then having them sung by talented artists and finally hearing them on top 40 radios!!!
Collaboration Goals:
publishing deal, mainstream artist release, niche/independent artist release
