I wrote a song for my children about the troubles of the world and what must be done to change it. My producer and recording partner, Brent Lewis, made new arrangements before recording it. Tribes of the World became the new title, and we modified a few words to make it a duet he performed with his daughter. It is part of our album titled Rhythm and Rhyme in the Nick of Time. The reason I share this is to underscore the team player role of a writer. We create lyrics from inspirations ignited by any and all of our senses. We also write to assert ideas, goals, and agendas pertaining to all areas of life (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual). When we get together with other creative people to put lyrics to music or music to lyrics, together with supporting sounds and singers, we are part of a team contributing to an end product of a collaborative effort. The result can be more than we imagined.

Sometimes our original idea will be given to an artist, and they will put it through the prism of their own thinking and feeling, and put a very different spin on it. As was the case for an old fashioned style love song I wrote, whose lyrics could be put into a very different context as exampled in this piece from our album titled Between the Stars:

Producers have a profound influence on many songs in written form, or recorded with music as demos, that inspire the producer to want to make recordings of them with very different elements (geared toward the production/marketing/distribution/sales/business part of the industry). As writers in a team effort there is a synergism of thoughts, ideas, wordsmithing, and blending of parts contributed by each team member.

Some singer songwriters are multi-talented and can produce their own completed works, retaining control of all aspect of the resulting recording. They may not want the original intent, mood, thoughts and feelings put through anyone else's prism of personality or business agendas. I do not possess those talents, let alone the mixing and mastering etc. I have found great fun and joy being a part of a team. The experiences in the recording studio ran the gamut of sober seriousness to riotous laughter and long discussions of real life issues and challenges.

I get similar rewards from JPF. Thank you all for the synergism.

Perry,

FYI, we're still (slowly) plugging away on the music awards. My apologies for the long long delays, but we haven't given up.
