I'm a writer. I write everything from books to articles to advertising copy... But my passion has always been writing lyrics. Nothing thrills me more than the marriage of a beautiful melody and the perfect words that move a listener's heart to feel joy, sadness, inspiration or whatever the song is going for. Finding the right phrase; staying true to the rhythm and rhyme scheme, saying something that has significance without being cryptic - these are my strengths. I come from the era of the great singer-songwriters, so I'm inspired by Billy Joel, Dan Fogelberg, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Adam Levine, Ryan Tedder, Ed Sheeran, and many others. If you feel that this is what you're looking for, give me a try. I'm open to work on a royalty share, by contract, or whatever you have in mind.
Dreams and ambitions:
I won't tell you I dream to sell millions of songs to major recording stars (well, I do a little). I just have a passion for music that, after years in the corporate world, I'm looking to fulfill. I write melodies too, but I'm not a good enough musician to make that work. But words, that's my thing. I'll work with long time vets or relative newbies. I just want to know the feeling of someone else singing my lyrics and touching someone's heart.
Some snippets: Back In Time - by John Rommel I wanna go back in time, Once again before I drift off into sleep. To ease my mind, And pray that all my memories will keep. For with you I had such happy times, So long ago, now all I ask is Please go back in time with me.
