  1. Hey! I just started attempting to song write, and I'm super excited to hear everyone's stuff! I mostly try to make some simple acoustic songs, and usually I fail desperately! I've already heard lots of amazing stuff already in the little bit of time I've been looking, and I'm looking forward to listen to some new art. I hope to learn from many of you, and to get to know you too!
  2. Hey my name is Mike Magee and I am a 30yr old songwriter. I deal with mostly rap and rnb with a little of pop. I have always had an immense love for music since I was younger and I actually use to make music myself. I'm not interested to be in the spotlight now a days. I like playing the background and helping others make beautiful music. I look forward to getting to meet new people here!
  3. Looking for criticism on any part of it really - lyrics, voice, melody. catchiness, arrangement - also suggestions for how to take it further! Thanks in advance
  4. Hi, my name is Mike. I was born and raised in New Jersey and I've always enjoyed song writing. Recently I've been writing country music songs and then I wrote my first rap song back in 2016 dedicated and inspired by my son who had some rough experiences in the early stages of his life. I consider myself to be a true story lyric writer so I base all my lyrics off my experiences or the others around me. I can't begin to say how thrilled I am to be able to have my songs produced.
  5. Hi. Andrew Essiet a.k.a. Andy Anies is a renown Songwriter, Screenwriter, Singer in fact Andy is a Music Legend that has practice music for three decades. He has written more than a thousand songs for himself and song seeking artist. Thanks, but let Google tells you more of him.
  6. Hi ya'll, Looks like I'll be guilty in including this topic under the "Shameless promotion" tag of the Musician Lounge but I was excited to share it here anyways, especially when this is where I've grew up as a musician. John has been the biggest mentor! Anyways, just wanted to share with you the Rolling Stone India interview I did for the next month's magazine issue. Here's the online version of it. http://rollingstoneindia.com/mahesh-raghunandan-one-song-at-a-time/ Hope all is well on that side! Cheers, Mahesh

    I wrote this originally because I was inspired by Aaliyah's original Back And Forth track. After I recorded this song it became my literal reality and I called my engagement off. I poured a lot into this song. But what do you think? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzVzPodfYCG-WDA1MzlDcGN6ck0/view?usp=drive_web

  10. Is this the right pleace to post this? Did record this song/demo at home (on a Boss BR600). Just two guitars and the vocals. It is not ment to be a perfect demo just a recording to get/give an impression about what the song could become (Idea for a song). I would appreciate some feedback. What do you think of what I have so far? Thanks in advance Roll the dice: Let’s roll the dice, let the game begin. What are the changes, to lose again. If this is what you’re living for, If this is what you’re longing for. No one said it would be easy, but it might be worth trying. For there may never be a time like this again (bay). And you may never get a chance like this again. For you may never feel alive like this again (bay). And the clock keeps ticking… Let’s roll the dice, double our lost bet. Let’s grab that last chance, before we go to sleep. And in the morning we’ll start over, and try it all again. No one said it would be easy, but it might be worth trying. For there may never be a time like this again (bay). And we may never get a chance like this again. For we may never be alive like this again (bay). And the clock keeps ticking…
  11. Hi! I’m mid-level writer with a strong urge (for now) to make progress in my songwriting and help others in any way that I can. I’ve had it in my head to start writing songs since I was 15 and in recent years I’ve gained a little knowledge. I hope that I may, at long last, be able to write songs that I can be proud of (an end goal I’m sure most of us have). I have a background in writing and I know just how isolating it can sometimes be. So I hope that I can offer friendship or, at the very least, a critical eye to those that need it!
  12. Hey! My name is Vita Sky! And I am a young artist in pop genre. My girl left me for my best friend. I have my Kickstarter project and trying to record and album #YouLeft.
  13. I was recently asked about what success means to me as a songwriter and musician. Explaining what this broad term means took me good thought. But recently, something that happened made things much easier for me to answer this question. Every individual is on the journey of finding some purpose in life. There are good times and bad that each of us wade through. Though we cannot possibly quantify all of it in a sentence (or a hundred), there are certain experiences that embrace the essence of it. I’ve been a singer-songwriter for years now and fortunately, being among the right people and the right situation, I’ve been able to make a living out of this. Not long ago, while unwinding among friends, I was asked to sing a couple of songs of mine that they were familiar with. I was happy to oblige as I‘ve been in the past among the same friends. It was a day with amazing food, new friends & family and the energy, so pure and serene. I savoured every bit of singing my heart out. What happened once I finished is what, I think, reasserted my purpose for making music. There were tears, hugs and kisses that came by me. Then it went among each other, where people expressed love and gratitude with heavy emotions. It was a surreal night. I did NOT just say that to praise myself and what I will say next should hopefully clear that. As a musician, a lot of people tell you — “You’ve got to work on your skills to give the listener your best” which is absolutely true. But as the words repeat in your head and outside of it, some tend to lose direction and ego takes over. The pressure to impress rises. But you know, to people with struggles, life goals and the need to find purpose, the only thing that matters is how something makes them feel. One can look over the mountains and be lost in recording the moment with their phones to show the world of their conquest. Another can be lost in the mountains themselves. The sheer beauty of it. Neither of it is necessarily wrong. Believe me, I’ve done both of ‘em. It doesn’t even have to be a mountain. It can supposedly be the ugliest thing in the world, but many see through it and find beauty and peace, in the darkest of moments. These mountains aren’t the way they are because they want to impress somebody. They are what they are, and remain to be, allowing for memories to be made, love to be shared and worries to be forgotten. That evening, I felt like the mountains. Ego had no room because love & gratitude was strong among everyone in the room. Stories and struggles that I don’t know of became the guests that were served; with words and melody. You see, songs don’t have to be good or bad to make people feel that way. They are just catalysts to heal unspoken words and tangled emotions. Success, to me, was seeing this unravel before my eyes and then staying with it, in silence.
  14. This was long due and I'm so very happy to be sharing this with you guys. Thanks for all the help that you've given me with this song so far. Songstuff sure is a boon!
  15. I'm an English/German songwriter living in Spain. I write, mix and master my own songs and offer my services for other people also. I'm constantly on the lookout for mixing jobs, and also lyricist jobs. I found this site by chance and am looking forward to the discussions here. It seems like a good place to meet other songwriters.
  16. Hey guys! My name is Nikos, and I am a lyricist from Greece. I am writing since 2011, and have since released songs with various singers, within various genres, and from various countries. My aim is to collaborate with as many composers and producers as possible. Music is a passion of mine, which I can't live without. Since 2013, I am annually pitching songs of mine to various countries across Europe, for the annual Eurovision Song Contest. Of course, working on the Eurovision Song Contest is not the only direction I head towards. Songs of mine have been released in Romania, Belarus, Sweden, Malta, Slovenia, Moldova, with new opportunities and projects in the making. When it comes to what style of music I work on, my answer always is, in each style possible. Personally I am a big fan of Blues, Rock, and Metal music, but when it comes to songwriting, I also have worked on Pop, Pop/Rock, Dance, and Ballads. So, as you can see I don't stick to a specific style of music, but prefer working in different styles, as I also like the excitement of working on something new and different. I hope that I will be able to find several collaborators on Songstuff, with whom I can work on some great songs for great artists. Here are all my released songs to date (which always gets updated with every new release): Hope to hear from you people soon! Nikos
  17. Hi there! I'm a singer-songwriter from germany, where is no such thing as this platform. So I am glad to be here. I'm currently writing a book on songwriting together with a co-author, that sums up our experiences we made during dozens of workshops in the last 10 years and revealing a genuine songwriting method we developed. At least we think it's genuine ... If anybody looks for a songwriting partner for german lyrics - here I am. Have a good time, kind regards Uli
  18. Hi , I started writing these lyrics yesterday , in Aus that was Thurs. 18th. I am just putting this out there to see if someone wants to help me make a song , they are not finished so additions , changes , help , welcome , NO TITLE Everything around us changes While we stay the same Once we were lost in newspapers Now it's technology Robots are becoming human While we turn into machines Automated electric cars No more industry CHORUS : Everything changes We stay the same Who's gonna change us Who we gonna blame Living insulated lives Retirement as the prize
  19. Hello, my name is Ronaldo and I am a Brazilian songwriter with a few songs released commercially, plus some independent tracks available (most of them through collaborations I was able to find here in this forum). I'm starting a project with some colleagues called Sharp Radar. Our goal is to connect songwriters and singers and make great music together. A lot of times, people have something with huge potential in their hands (either lyrics, music or a voice...), but can't find other people who might have the parts they are missing. We believe that internet should be a very powerful tool to allow this type of collaborations to come true and we think this project brings the vision, the focus and the organization to accomplish that. It is a quest for synergy, above all. In this first stage of the project, we are building a close team of songwriters, who will, later, create music for/with the singers we will bring to the project (chosen by the songwriters themselves, as this will work as a collective). We are currently finishing our web site, where you can find all the details about how we plan this to work: http://sharpradar.biz.tm/ I know there are many lyricists here (being one myself), so I would like to point out that we certainly have space for top-line writers (those who write lyrics over pre-existing music). Whether you are a songwriter, a producer or a top-line writer, feel free to get in touch. If you might have any questions or would like to know anything else about the project, feel free to ask and I will answer as soon as possible. You can ask here in the forum, send me a personal message, contact us by the website... Looking forward to hear from the great community we have here!
  20. Hello! My name is Alexis. I am a 23 year old living in the south and an aspiring songwriter/lyricist. I have loved writing and music with a passion ever since I was little. It's my dream to be able to show others my emotions and experiences through my writing and hopefully make them understand and feel the same way, or to be able to relate to it on some level. I am usually very shy and I don't like showing others my private thoughts, but I realize that I can't keep that characteristic and expect to be able to achieve my dream either. Due to a series of life circumstances, it has been literally years since I felt inspired or able to write, but I am happy that it's coming back to me. So I am on songstuff to help me overcome that fear and mental block, as well as to associate with others who are of a like mind, and to learn ways I can truly make improvement in my writing. I hope to hear good, honest, constructive criticism and to do the same for others, even with my limited experience and knowledge. I guess that's it. It's nice to meet everyone!

  22. Hey guys! https://soundcloud.com/micky-shiloah/watch-me-go-shiloah Watch Me Go is about leaving a lasting impression. When a relationship ends (with a lover, friend, boss, etc.), and wanting to give that person one final glimpse so they know we’re OK, that we’re on top of the world…even though we’re not. Lyrics: I’m gonna tighten my lips I’m gonna set my mind I’m gonna wait until the morning Cuz I come alive after midnight I got my skinny tight jeans I got my slicked back hair I feel like ooh I’m ####### ready To pretend that I don’t want you to stare You’ve all got nothing on me Chorus: I don’t want to be alone But I can’t wait to turn you on Turn around And have you watch me go Go home alone but you’ll never know You’ll think I’m running with the best You’ll think I’ve made it after all You’ve got your candy-coated sweetheart Looking happy as pie I got tequila and a cigarette cuz i’m a positive kinda guy I see you headed to the bathroom I think I caught your eye I run my hands through my hair I take a sip and then I head outside You know they’ve got nothing on me Chorus Bridge: Watch me go Even though I’m alone Watch me go Even though I’m alone Watch me go You don’t know I’m alone Watch me go Repeat Chorus x2 Thank you for any feedback!! Micky

  25. Hey there! My name is Jason, I'm currently 18 years old and from a little village in Germany. I call myself a singer-songwriter for about 2 years now. I started playing guitar with 15 (I think) and soon was busking with my friend who encouraged me to sing. Somehow this succeeded even though my confidence was quite non-existent. With the time, we started writing first songs together and officially formed the band "Black.Box". This lasted about a year or so, but soon we realized our differences; he was quite extroverted and almost longing for drama to write about (he did some badass things back then), while I was sorta busy with my own mind and made up worries from nothing. As you can imagine, worrying is no good way of living and I found myself on the edge of depression. I never slipped though.. thanks to my passion, making music. So then, after I finished school and got rid of all the pressure, I got a girlfriend and life felt finally great again. But the drawback was, I was "dry" so to speak. Not a single line written in over 2 months(!). During that time I still was doing music though, taking lessons for guitar and singing and making videos for my YouTube Channel JasonINero, but still I never had such a blockade before, and for me there was no way explaining this but that being happy wont bring me inspiration. That's a hard way to put it I and surely I don't want to think this way. For me a journey started, looking for inspiration all around me. I got in contact with myself again, found new ways to express myself and bring emotions to paper but also worries started to form again, yet this time I know where I'm heading and I'm ready.. The moment when a person has tears in the eyes because of something I wrote, play and sang - that's what I'm living for! Well now here I am, I love singing, playing guitar and writing songs. With my membership here on songstuff, I'd like to share some lyrics, give and get feedback, discover new artists but most of all: learn. Because what's life without learning and striving for true greatness? And by that I mean, being the best me I can be. My main inspirations and influences right now are: Ben Howard, James Bay, Allman Brown, JP Cooper, Vance Joy, Jaymes Young, Johnny Flynn, etc... x JasonINero
