Lyric writer - Collaborator - Song lover
I've always loved writing.
Anything - songs, poems - just telling stories. And I've always loved music. All kinds of music. It just took a while to put the two together.
Writing has given me a bit of an 'in' into music - working with some very gifted people who can sing, play, do melody - and who can write too.
A great world to explore - and hopefully a few decent songs along the way!
