My name is Darin Martin and I'm a songwriter with Nashville connections.

I'm a member with ASCAP and Global Songwriter Connection.

My strengths are lyrics in the Chrisitan and Country market. I would like to write with a melody/musician who can put the lyrics to music. Sometimes I have a melody in my head that I could sing over the phone and would just need someone to put the chords together.

When we get a worktape done, I send it to my song coach Sheree at GSC. After I get a review, I'll make any necessary changes she suggested and then get it demoed. I use Jay Speight with AcousticVocal for most of my demos.

Here's a link to my previous work with my resume.

If interested, please leave a link of your previous work and PM me your contact info. Thanks for your time and I'm looking forward to writing great songs together!

Hi dtrain,
After listening to a few excerpts of your songs I don't think you need a Co-Writer. They appear plenty good to me. You can listen to a few of my songs under New Web Site on the Industry board. Good luck!

Hi Darin,

Good luck with your search for co writers. I'm sure it won't take long to find one. Lots of good folks here on JPF. I saw some of your lyrics on the forum already. Not bad at all.

Hi Darin, I would agree with everyone above, the samples I listened to are very good. The link below will take you to some of my songs I have written and Jay has done the demo's for. I've also posted a lyric today on the Lyric 3 board if you want to stop by and comment.
Have a blessed day

Do you attend the monthly Global meetings? Sheree has very good networking opportunities, each month where people get together, trade ideas, experiences, information. If you live out of town, it would be worth coming in to meet people, and hang out.
I don't make them all, but have been a featured speaker and do try to make it when I can. Hope to meet you sometime there.
