I am a lyricist and melody writer predominantly in the fields of blues, soul, r&b, country, pop, rock and indie. I like to write meaningful songs using simple lyrics that have brevity.
I like to use a modern feel in classic sounding music. Ultimately I am looking at writing top 20 material.
My strengths are lyrics and groove. I am also good at thinking outside the box and coming up with interesting styles of music. I always try to ensure my music is contemporary, emotive, catchy, meaningful and true in its message.
As I do not play instruments I am looking for a keyboardist / guitarist. My issue in the past has been that most producers I have worked with have been unable to capture the right sound for my songs so I am looking at doing things differently going forward.
Although there is always give and take in the creative process I want the songs to sound true to the style and direction I have in mind for them so I would like to work on the bare bones first which is 1 instrument and 1 singer. From that get the accompaniment correct so that the style shines through and from this the production follows.
I have tried other ways but they dont work with my songs. It is not that the style is not apparent or that they are not well written but rather they are a little different from what you usually hear on the radio so producers try to make a production for them that they are used, this method has impacted my songs negatively. So to prevent this in the future I will be doing a lot more pre-production in the future.
