I'm a pro-level Nashville-based songwriter/guitarist/singer currently recording new CD of original material. I'm looking for my Bernie Taupin/Hal David! I need very strong lyrics in the folk/Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, etc., style, possibly some blues and country in the mix, but not seeking Top 40 commercial country songs at this time. I am particulary looking for "artsy" real life powerful songs. These would be mainly for me to record and distribute online as well as to play out, but also some percentage would be demoed to pitch to others. If you have samples of your work, please contact me. I have some songs posted on www.MySpace.com/gabehizer but my new stuff is better!
So is it still possible to find great lyricists in town who aren't totally focused on top 40 country hits?
Joshua: You must have some classical voice training. Nice! I also like your list of influences; not the usual! I reviewed your lyrics, and I think some additional specificity in details would help, but in any event I think we should give it a try. You live in Nashville? I'm in Antioch. What kind of schedule do you have, as to when could meet? Thanks for responding!
well i have a very cool heart felt slow country tune, and a ballad Joan Baez type folk song. But I wrote the with someone who isn't around. they are copy written registered,So I don't know how to post them since they are on tapes and without the music you can't hear the tune.The words do stand alone,like poetry.. They are very tight. But i don't know how i would get money or fame for the songs..
I also am going for some serious surgery friday and may be laid up for awhile..Not sure how long.. How can i get my tunes from tapes to CD's without a machine and paying someone to transpose it for me..??
get back to me with how all this works. i think 1 of my songs are what you are seeking.. Judi/janebond007
