Hi, my name is Jamie and I am from the St. Louis area. I am looking for cowriters. In the past I have written mainly pop songs with one regular cowriter. I would like to write more country songs and find regular country cowriters to pitch to Nashville.

I think I am much better with lyrics, so it would be ideal of you were a stronger music/melody writer.

I am a member of NSAI and Songu.com.

Here is a link to some of my songs.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I also have plenty of country-inspired lyrics for consideration, including this one which was inspired by a workplace event where a lady at a cubicle near where I was stationed was having a 50th birthday party and was surprised by her co-workers when she returned from vacation. There were some gifts, plenty of balloons and her area walled off with crime scene tapes. A few days later I was walking through the corridor and nearly tripped over a few of the balloons that were left over. And this song was born. See what you think.


LEFTOVER BALLOONS

c2014 Brian Beecher


I was invited to your birthday party
By someone who knew you and used to work aside
I thought I was over all the heartache
But back when you left me I was filled with wounded pride

I arrived at your house around eight-thirty
And sat in the most comfortable chair in the place
I didnít know if you were with another
But memories rained down upon me when I saw your face

When I asked if we could get back together
You told me it was over, there was nothing I could do
I canít help but think of you when I hear romantic tunes
All thatís left of what we had are leftover balloons

When I drove by your house a few days later
I would see a few balloons left out in the rain
Iíll go on with my life, thereís not use waiting
But when I saw those few balloons I really felt the pain

When I asked if we could get back together
You told me it was over, there was nothing I could do
I canít help but think of you when I hear romantic tunes
All thatís left of what we had are leftover balloons

Have you had luck finding cowriters yet? Much of my stuff, including the example above, are tailored for the genre. Is your strong suit lyrics or music, or do you dabble in both?

Seems to me that this isn't genuine.
The voice on your first track is different to the other tacks.
Who are you really?


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

I don't know Jamie, but what's so weird about it? She's obviously a female and the first song is sung by a male. The second song is sung by a female; is it Jamie, is it her collaborator, does it matter? It's probably a singer she got to sing the song; doesn't mean she's not a genuine writer.

I dont understand why someone is saying this is not
genuine ???? neither God above I have used at least
forty singers as well as myself for DEMO's over the
years, we are not all self contained

As Doo Wah states above, as writers we dont always
have the voice for a quality Demo

It's almost like someone shouting out TROLL just
because someone is a bit critical of a song
and that has happened on here a few times as well
as other boards

A bit more of a professional attitude towards
newcomers would not go amiss



One of the most important principles of songwriting is to remember that a good song is a partnership of many different components, all working together to produce a satisfying musical experience.

In that respect, song components are either enhancing or compromising their combined effects.

I can assure you that I and my songs are genuine....just as genuine as the cost of the demo that I split with my co-writer. LOL!

I am in process of trying to write different genres of songs and for different people. I think that is how you learn and grow as a writer.
