Hi, my name is Ralph and guess what, I just joined the forum. I don't consider myself a professional songwriter, as I haven't finished a lot of songs, apart from all my teenage crap, but I write sometimes and am very interested in the craft. I'm also a solid arranger and composer with decent skills on the piano and on the guitar. I'm also exploring the world of producing.


Lately I've been feeling kind of intimidated by the quantity of songs that professional writers seem to put out, while my songs take forever. It makes me really want to boost the creative process in any way I can so I can make good music, as opposed to average or decent music.


My favorite genres to write for are pop, rock and folk. I'm a perfectionist. I think about every lyric and every note and how they work together. I try tons of slightly different harmonizations, until I find one where everything just clicks.


Some of my great examples are big mainstream writers like Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Emilie Wright, StarGate, Zedd and RedOne, and lots of recording artists they've worked with.


Some songs that are, in my eyes, perfect are "I Am Light" by India Arie, "Breakout" by Cryoshell and "Fight" by The Dirty Youth.



Wheww, that's it I guess. Thanks for stopping by. See ya.

Sounds promising!


I'm always looking for people to collaborate with, mainly because I'm a lousy (and I mean lousy) musician. Notwithstanding my lack of skills I keep writing songs from Folk through Hard Rock all the time. Yet my own recordings or productions of these very songs sound like one would expect :-(


If you're inspired by well written lyrics: that's the part I'm good at.

(the songs are on SoundClick http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=1018720&content=music but there are links from my homepage anyway)
