Poet needed for lyrics
« on: July 26, 2013, 02:37:39 PM »
I write music and play shows in Memphis, TN. I need lyrics for music that I have and am extremely bad at poetry. If you're interested in having your writing put into song (I'm a lot better at that) and would like your name as a writer on an album. Then let me know. I have a few subjects I'm interested in you writing for but I'll also take yours if it's good enough. You'll receive full credit for you work and even your share of money when the music goes to Itunes.

Thanks!

Okay,

here are some themes i was working on

The death of the Caucescu's

inspired by this video

here is my embarrassingly bad attempt
http://mywriterscircle.com/index.php?topic=49313.0

you get the idea. I've been told it's unreadable. But that's cool.



The death of Phoebe Prince, and the school shooter TJ lane.


I have work on it too but I'd rather not even post it cause I don't want to post anymore bad poetry. But if you're interested message me and I'll show you where I was going with it.





Bad relationships, unrequited love, the innate darkness of humanity, :] anything really I am open to ideas as long as it's good. Mostly I am looking for darker subject matter. Think the Manic Street Preachers album The Holy Bible, lyrics here.

My band name is the Arab Spring. There will be a full band when it's completed. You can listen to some of my music here to get an idea of what it will sound like when its finished. (without the band)

Also drug addiction and alcoholism are major themes I want to write about, being a recovering addict/alcoholic.
