Hi, I am new here. I have been righting lyrics in my spare time (car line) and I have seven songs written so far. I received a contract for my lyrics from Nashville. They liked my work, but I can not afford the demo fees. I am looking for melodist/ music writer to work with me.

Jackie, post your lyrics in the Collaborations Forum and ask if anyone would like to have a go at setting them to music. There aren't as many people round here like there used to be, but you may strike gold. Good luck!

Smells like a scam to me.....what's the name of the company offering you a contract?

Yes, I'd be wary of someone offering their services, in exchange for you paying for the 'demo fees'. A label truly interested would pair YOU (as a lyricist)_ with a composer, and they'd foot the bill.

Do you sing?


Frankenstrats suggestion is a good one, but don't be alarmed or disappointed if response is low. What you're asking is an investment of time and effort.

and if someone does collaborate... then what? do you promote, does he/she?

I don't mean to be harsh, but the music industry is truly a dog-eat-dog affair. Do you understand copyright (if not ...and if you're serious, do yourself a favor and get to know it!)

Do you live in a larger area of population? If so, look for someone to team with a 'lyricist". You're much better off if you can sit/work directly with a musician (guitar is good, piano may perhaps be better) If you don't sing, find a vocalist... it's hard to sell songs with just a printed chart

I don't inn anyway mean to dissuade you, but if this was easy, there'd be thousands upon thousands of songwriters, lyricists, composer, jingle writers employed

there are "studios" that thrive on wanna-be's (not that you're one, but be aware
