Hello everyone!

Or I should say, hello again!

I had an older account here a LONG time ago (ok, maybe more like 10 years ago! :P) but I stopped using it because I had a lot going on and also, I do music under my real name now (I was under a pseudonym before)

Basically, I'm Cecilee and I'm a singer/songwriter from the East Coast. I play piano, a little bit of guitar, and I also sing. I would consider my music to be alternative piano pop. If you like the alternative singer/songwriters like Charlotte Martin, Christine and the Queens, or even Kate Bush, my stuff is up your alley! smile

I also perform regularly on Twitch! On Wednesday evenings and Friday afternoons, I'm live on my channel playing my own music as well as various cover songs! You can check that out here!

Good to be back here! I've missed coming here and nice to be here as myself! smile


Indie piano pop singer/songwriter!

New EP Supernovas now available for pre-order on iTunes: http://music.apple.com/us/album/supernovas-ep/1642229992

Hi everyone. I’m Nick from the uk. Manchester to be precise. I’m looking for lyric writers to collaborate with. I’ve been a full time theatre touring musician for the last 35 years but I’m getting too old for touring so it’s time to concentrate on the writing in my autumn years (50) I’ve also been running my own studio for the last 15 years. I’m open to ideas and very laid back to work with

Look forward to hearing from you……
Nick

Hi all,
I'm introducing myself.
My name is Christian. I'm 63 years old.
I live in France.
I've been teacher during 37 years.
And since I'm retired, I'm making music several hours a day.
I'm using my guitar to compose and Band-in-a-Box to arrange my songs.
Musical regards

Thanks, Brian, for your warm welcome.
I would like to know in which forum I have to post if I want to propose some music looking for lyrics (and then a singer) ?

You can post on any or all of the 3 lyric boards and if you have samples of your music you can also link them and/or post them on the MP3 board.

Hello, I am new here. I have been writing songs since the age of 16. Many times, I have actually thrown my songs away, thinking it would never happen, but I had them online on a website years ago and got my babies back. I will never get rid of them again. smile Going to keep writing and keep believing!

That's good to hear.
John Lennon, who did a little song-writing himself, lamented 'throwing away' a lot of stuff he wrote as a young boy, young man, and posed the question,
"Who was I to judge?"
As the song-writer you are the first listener.
You make all kinds of judgment calls, and 'complete' your song. Maybe some of your decisions were limited by your experience, shaped by your tastes, flawed by your inexperience, but each was a learning experience influencing the next one you wrote.
The electronic world is often an annoyance, but it's good to hear that you were able to retrieve your works, thanks to the internet.
My philosophy is that there will always be another song to be written. Despite thousands of years of song-writing we have not exhausted the possibilities. Someone will write a great new song and we'll all hear it and many of us will declare it a great new song. So why not you? As long as you keep reaching for your instruments, and exploring what your mind can do with notes and chords and words and tempos and percussion, the possibilities are endless.

Hello everyone. I'm a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist guy from NY. I mostly write folk-ish (or alt-folk?) stuff and piano ballads. I've been making music for a long time. Always happy to find like-minded people to share it with

What would you like to learn Zodii?
Look around.
I'm preparing to re-read Ande Rasmussen's "Songwriting Tips" (If that's what it's called.)

Here it is! "Ande's Lyric Writing Tips".

Hi everyone! I’m Beth, I’m 50 years old (gasp!) and I’ve been singing since I was a child. I’ve never had voice lessons or formal training (I’ve sung in choirs) but I just love to sing! I really just sing casually I guess, for my own pleasure. I hope to get some feedback and/or comments. Thank you for having me.

Welcome smile
Tried to listen on the other thread, but it's just an ad to join a karaoke service... You'll get a lot more feedback if you can post a direct audio link. Down in Mp3 feedback wink

Peace
Tony

Howdy yall,

I'm trying to make another comeback in the music industry after celebrating my 5 year wedding anniversary on May 5th. I live near the Philadelphia area. I'm a lyricist that's looking to co-write with melody writers/producers in the Christian and Country market with an occasional pop song here and there. I have 1 song on hold with a Southern Gospel trio and another country song being represented with a reputable Nashville music publisher. I already posted looking for collaborations. It's great to be back.


My music.

Hi everyone,

Long time lurker / plain folk here. I've read almost every thread back to back and have massive admiration for those here. I write, co-write, mix, produce and record. Right now, I run another unrelated business because it pays the bills, but the thought never leaves my mind if I should be taking bigger plunges in the sea of the music industry. No risk, no reward, right? As most of you, it started out for fun in my youth then morphed into dreams of grandeur. So I put the cart before the horse and invested a serious amount of investment into the business end of it - almost regrettable amounts. I learned a lot but setting the bar so very high for so many years took the joy out of it, and I'm trying to repair my relationship with the music again: literally not focusing on business, connections, or networking anymore and just sitting in my studio writing and producing songs in solace for now. Egos, drama and physical losses over the past two decades has burnt me out. Lawsuits to protect your property are no fun. I've been there and though I've come out on top, it was always a grueling process - leaving me more paranoid of the industry, each time. I've been drifting ever since and not sure if I'm throwing in the towel, but I'm close.
