See How You Are

This is a first time co-write between myself and co-writer, Betty Miller. Betty had a cut by Charlie Pride a while back, and she's also one of the founding members of our local songwriter's association. It was a real honor when she came to me, handed me a lyric sheet and said, "I think you can help me with this song." She already wrote the lyrics, but needed someone to put music and melody to it. I went into my home studio and what you hear are my thoughts on the music and melody. I am also the vocalist on this one.

Hey Ghost

I hope it's ok to post a song in progress for feedback. I wrote this over the weekend and recorded it (up to the bridge) last night. I'm kind of excited about it and would love to hear what others think. Thank you so much!!!

Summer ‘s Gone

It took me about ten re-writes to finish this song, in the end only the hook line and the bridge were left over from my original version and the melody also has changed twice. It's a lesson I had to learn - sometimes it takes really hard efforts to get there. This song has got some attention, among others it was on the NASI Top 40 list.

A Patient Man

I wrote this song in the hopes of someday pitching it to Tim McGraw, unfortunately that has not happened yet. However I also wrote this song for every man who is fortunate enough to go home every night to his reason for breathing.

WORLDS APART

This is just a general observation of a woman who has done well in her life and wants the fairy tail kind of life but is attracted to the bad boy who is really worlds away from her life and lifestyle.
This is an acoustic work tape.
I am singing and playing guitars.

Blasphemous Kiss

This is lyrics-only. It was sparked by one of Brent's kickstarter exercises, "Regret is..." That was dropped as the song evolved through several drafts.

Cross A Man’s...

Country song written with Elysse Yulo. Chorus would "lift" much more if it were to get a real demo. Thanks to Brian Palay for singing and playing guitar on the worktape.

Love At First Kiss ...

This is a rewrite of a song a friend of mine (Chad Hamilton) and I wrote over a year ago. It's a rough demo, I need to work on the production and vocals, but I thought it would be a fun uptempo love song in the country-pop/pop-country genre. It's a non-standard song format, since it has one verse, a chorus, and a bridge (verse-chorus-bridge-chorus-refrain), so I know that's a different set-up than most songs, but I can change that if I need to.

Sunshine In The Rain

Rough work tape of a new love song. Production is a little rough, and I need to tweak the vocals, but I figured this could work as a country-pop or pop-country kind of song.

Don’t Feel the...

The life of a song can be fascinating! First we put in the work of writing, rewriting, rewriting a second time, and sometimes rewriting a third time before producing the all important demo. Then once the demo is complete we send it out into the world and we wait, and we wait, and we wait!

This is the demo of such a song. I wrote this song and demoed it in 2014, but it has been cut twice this year. The first cut being in January by new country artist Matt Westin, and the most recent cut by christian country artist Bryan Carroll with Daywind Music Group of Nashville. Songwriting has taught me both diligence and patience. I love being a songwriter!

Here’s what songwriters are saying...

Frettie’s a great place for writers to share ideas and concepts. I often use singers in Nashville on songs where the vocals were written here in the UK. Dropbox and Frettie helps close the gap on global songwriting.
