Let Me Write a Song For YOU!
Let’s discuss the type of song you want and how soon you’ll n need it.
I often get composers to write the music to my lyrics. Sometimes I write the melody.
We can discuss the price, which will depend on the amount of work required to complete the song.
I can also write parodies for you, should you wish one.
There is, usually, no charge for you to do a live performance of a song I’ve already written. I ask that you let me know when and where you’ll be singing any song of mine so tat I can alert ASCAP. If it contributes to a writer’s show charges to the writer may apply and the writers and I can discuss the possible charges.
I’ve written songs for several people and I’ll gladly put you in touch with them, so you can hear form them how it worked.
I often appear at “Salon” presented most Sunday nights from 7:30-10:30PM at Don’t Tell Mama! by Tanya Moberly and Mark Janas. I always sing a song I’ve written. Other performers have performed my songs in their shows and at events, due to my having sung them at “Salon”.
I’m, proudly, a member of The Songwriters Alliance, which was founded by Tom Toce.

Price, beginning at $1,000 will depend on the complexity of the song and will include the cost of having your lead sheet (the written music for an accompanist) and a “composer’s demo” mp3 made for you and emailed to you. There will be a small extra charge if you need a CD mailed to you.
