Lyric & Song
Critiques & Editing
I am always excited to meet you, my new, talented clients, who send their work for song and lyric evaluations. I refer to this as a song consultation.
For your consultation, I will review each song and lyric you send me in terms of where it would best fit in the current marketing place.
After listening to a body of your work, and reading carefully through your lyrics several times, I get a real sense of who you are, and what you can contribute to the literature of music that nobody else can, since nobody else is you.
For example, if you send ten songs for consultation and nine of them are awesome, but the tenth isn’t quite there yet, I will go through it syllable by syllable, note by note.
I will offer suggestions on how to revise your song ever so slightly in order for it to be as strong, and as competitive as the best songs/lyrics out there.
That is all included in my consulting fee.
After completing your song critiques consultation, I can tell immediately where and how to help you get your music to all the right people.
Most folks claiming to do song and lyric evaluations send a quickie checklist, if that. But not me! I go through every detail of every song myself. I make careful, detailed notes on every syllable of lyric and every note of music and how the two parts of your songs blend together.
If your work is a good fit for the current marketplace, I will hook you up with everyone looking for great songs in your genre. That, too, is included in my consulting fee.
When doing song and lyric evaluations, I look for your heart, your guts, your fingerprint. My colleagues on the other side of the desk, who’ve been placing our clients’ songs in movies, TV, on CD’s and in commercials for years and years, look for that, too.
All songs must be written or co-written
by the same person.
Please email all of your songs, in mp3 format with lyrics, and your questions, on the same day, for the same consultation. Submit lyric sheets, not lead sheets. Very few people in the music business can actually read music. But they can hear!
