Hi Everyone,

I run the NSAI Pittsburgh workshop out here in the Cranberry/Mars area.

I am looking for melody collaborators.

I have a few lyrics that have gone through multiple reviews at organizations such as Songu and NSAI. I have changed up the coaches at times to get a variety of feedback. Also, I have done some mini surveys of friends and neighbors to see what they felt of the lyrical idea. I have a handful that are ready to have music set to them.

Over the past two years, I have really tried to focus on my strength (lyrical ideas). I have taken many lyrical classes and I have really been working at translating the ideas into strong lyrics.

It seems to be paying off. My reviews both inside www.songu.com and through some contests I have entered have been getting some relatively high marks. I have been told that my ideas are very strong with a lot comercial potential and viability.
Here are a few comments from a couple song contests I entered (lyric only category).

"The thing I love about your lyrics is the sheer real life believability to them. They don't even feel like a lyric as much as someone talking the way they normally talk and it happens to be broken up into a lyric form of verse" UNISONG International Song Contest

“You just don’t see this level of creativity in lyrics floating around much in today’s music world. You clearly have the talent to
call yourself a professional lyricist par excellence”. UNISONG International Song Contest

“Your lyrics are very clever. They are funny with very original titles, hooks, and themes that have strong appeal.” Great American Song Contest
*********************************************

If you have any interest, let me know and I will send you some lyrics for review.

Thanks Dan Robinson

Dan:

I'd be happy to take a look. Home edress is puddleglum@tillanet.com. I make no promises; if, upon reading any of 'em, I hear music, I will let you know and maybe we'll have a deal. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't.

I have had the good fortune to have heard music to a few lyricists' work, and set their stuff to music, and they appeared to like it. You might have the same experience--or not. If I do something, and you don't like it, well, I'll just chalk it up to experience.

You should be aware that what I mostly write is country music (though some of the music I've written for other folks has turned out to be blues). You can hear my own words and music stuff at the link below. Let me know if you're intereswted.

Joe
