ABOUT

Played professionally until I was 32 years old. The only job I held for over 15 years. I have been putting a home studio together over the last couple of years. What I'm looking for is a lyricist, a ghost writer who I can partner with to write lyrics to my original compositions.

My main goal here is to meet musically minded individuals who I can collaborate with and come up with some interesting ideas. You must be capable of recording ideas on your own and I have an upload and a download link for exchanging ideas back and forth. I am interested in collaborating with any musicians, singers and songwriters. You should be able to record on your own equipment to make the collaboration seamless.
