I am a non-performing songwriter who writes ORIGINAL, INNOVATIVE  lyrics and compositions. I enjoy all genres of music and can write in any style including: Hip- Hop, Pop, Ballad, Alternative, Adult Contemporary, Christian, Inspirational

I like to step outside the box and write from various perspectives. Lyric-writing is definitely my strength. I strive to create a sense of imagery and poetry with my words.

Whether it is  humor, cynicism, love, sadness, pride or joy,  I focus on the emotional aspect of a song and search for creative ways in which to present these emotions.

I’m interested in writing songs for both upcoming and established recording artists. One of my goals is to collaborate with other songwriters and musicians to create songs for short film, movie, and television soundtracks as well as advertising campaigns.

I am currently working on my fifth production with StudioPros producer and brilliant musical composer, Robb Hutzal. StudioPros is a cutting edge full-service production company. While I am the architect of the lyrics and melody, I transfer the arrangements to the team of professional musicians, producers, and engineers at Studio Pros. It has been an ideal system for my writing style.

Feature Song: TOWERS with demo vocalist

Backstory: The incredible singer is from Studio Pros. His vocals remind me of Seal’s and I absolutely love his delivery of this song! I could write songs for Evan to sing full time!  Robb Hutzal, of Studio Pros, is the producer. The musicians he utilizes are exceptional.

With its “strength versus adversity” theme, I decided to gear Towers specifically towards sports venues and video game companies. It’s an anthem with a positive, powerful message.

The original concept for this song stems from my dismay over how quickly the public turns on athletes, public figures, and each other.  Sadly, most people truly want to see others fail in their endeavors or condemn them when they fall from grace. I correlated that idea with my own regrettable decision to share my songwriting with the public on social media four years ago. However, it supplied enough song material to create the entire rap verse which Evan so eloquently translates on my behalf.

When you take the risk of putting yourself, your creative work, or endeavors out there, you are guaranteed backlash from people always looking for you to fail. If your goal is to work outside the ordinary realm of an office cubicle or have a hobby outside of scrapbooking, then someone will make it their mission in life to tear you down so that you stop believing in your dreams because they’re too weak to pursue their own. They relish the fact that you struggle finding success with something you enjoy doing. Unfortunately, talent is often a secondary consideration in our society.  “It’s who you know, what your name is, it’s how you look, are you rich, are you famous?”

Never give up! Prove them wrong! Put your armor on and build your towers high!

When they come, when they come-   to tear you down
When they come, when they come-   to watch you fall
You will build your towers up so high. They will never get to you
Stand up – Be strong – Put your armor on
When they cast their stones, they will never get to you

Your towers – will be unshakeable. Your towers – will be unbreakable
Build them up, Build them up, Build them up
Build those towers high

They will look for your flaws, your inequities- They will pose as your friends but they’re enemies
They will look for your weakness -try to break your defense
They will criticize, patronize, never apologize
It’s not what you know or the talent you hold -You try to believe but that’s not reality
It’s who you know, what you’re name is -It’s how you look- Are you rich? Are you famous?
When they look in the mirror, do they see what they like? Are they satisfied with their own life?
Are they the judge and jury to decide? Tell them to stand in line. You have nothing to hide
They want to see you fail – try to knock you down want to see you fall, crash and burn to the ground
But you have to be strong. Put your armor on 

Your towers – will be unshakeable. Your towers – will be unbreakable
Build them up, Build them up, Build them up
Build those towers high

Some towers fall for glory and pride, in the name of country and sacrifice,
to defend what’s right, to justify and some just fall for the thrill of the fight
Choose your battles, your words, your weapons, and know who’s on your side

Aim for the stars, give it all you got, take a chance, take another shot
Don’t let them push you around, push back
Let it go, look forward, and don’t look back
Crash through the ceiling, raise it up, change the rules, break that glass

Your towers-will be unshakeable.  Your towers -will be unbreakable
Build them up, Build them up, Build them up
Build those towers high

When they come, when they come-   to tear you down
When they come, when they come-   to watch you fall
You will build your towers up so high. They will never get to you
Stand up – Be strong – Put your armor on
