Project details

Whether you are an artist/band looking for an outside songwriter, or you want an original song written for a loved one to show them you care about them, I write for any occasion and with any specifications.

You will receive is (at least) two recordings and a chord chart with lyrics written out. One of the recordings will be a demo of the song with vocals, guitar, and potentially other instrumentation depending on the genre. The other will be an instrumental recording, should you be an artist and you choose to record an original vocal yourself. If I record multiple instruments in my original demo, I will include individual stems for those as well. If something isn't to your liking, we can go back and forth with edits until we have a product you like!

TO THOSE WISHING TO RELEASE THE SONG TO STREAMING PLATFORMS: In addition to payment for the composition of the song itself, I expect to be credited as the sole songwriter so I can receive songwriting royalties for said song. BMI is my PRO. If you choose to use any of my instrumental tracks, I expect to be credited as a session musician so I can receive royalties for my performance as well.
Genre R&B, Folk, Funk

Project steps

  • 1
    1. First Demo/Chord Chart/Lyrics

    This is your first draft. It will typically be completely unmixed and raw, simply so you have an idea of the direction I am going. I will include a chord chart with the lyrics as well.

    2. Revisions

    If there are any changes you'd like to make, this is when we will make them! We can sit down over Skype/Zoom or we can discuss over email. You can kick it back as many times as you want as long as your feedback is specific!

    3. Final Demo

    After the revisions are made and you're happy with the song, I will be sending a final, more polished demo, along with a new chord chart and lyric sheet.
