Why should I order a custom song?
There are many reasons why you might want to order a custom song. Perhaps you’re getting married and want your own personalized song for your first dance. Maybe you want to give a gift to your spouse for an anniversary or Valentine’s Day. You may want a special song written in remembrance of a loved one that has passed on, or to welcome a new addition to your family. If you’re a speaker, author, or coach, think of how empowering it would be to walk out on stage to your very own theme song filled with inspiring lyrics. Ordering a custom song could be as simple as wanting to hear your story put into a melody.
How much does a custom song cost?
Pricing ranges from $2,500-$9,000 and varies depending on each package and upgrade chosen. Please contact us and include your budget. We’ll do our best to create an experience that will fit your needs, or we will refer you to someone who can.
How long does it take to get my song? How far in advance should I plan to have the song for my event?
The time it takes to create a song will vary depending on how many instruments are used, how soon your deadline is, and how quickly you give final approval on melody and lyrics. Once you’ve given final approval on lyrics and melody, it can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 weeks to complete the recording, editing, mixing, and mastering process. After this process, you’ll have immediate access to the digital content. You may have to wait another week or two for the CD to be created and shipped to you.
Ideally, you’ll want to order your custom song at least 2-3 months before your big event. Rush options are available and can be discussed when you reach out to us. Please include your deadline in your message.
What do I get when I order my custom song?
In the Rock Star Experience, you will receive a digital download of the radio ready song, as well as a CD in a jewel case with your custom artwork. You’ll also get an instrumental track to sing along to. In the A-List Experience, you’ll receive all of that plus sheet music or guitar tabs, a custom music industry plaque with laser engraved lyrics, a personalized music movie, and more (see each experience features in detail above -on this page)
Who owns the rights to the song?
Ashley will own the rights to any and all songs she writes and records. There are, however, options available to purchase the rights to your song, as well as mechanical and sync licenses. These options will be presented and discussed in full before beginning the songwriting experience.
Who will sing on the track?
Ashley is the vocalist for most custom songs, however, occasionally you may want a male vocalist, or YOU may want to be the vocalist! All of this can be negotiated when we connect to determine how you want your song to sound. Ultimately, this is your song, and you’ll be able to choose.
Is there any type of song you can’t write?
Ashley specializes in pop, folk, country, and piano ballad songs. She selects songs to write based on the story behind the song and her connection to it. Please listen to music she’s written previously to get a feel for the style before purchasing.
Please note: We reserve the right to refuse song proposals that are vulgar in nature, contain profanity, or that discriminate against race, religion, sex, culture, or ethnicity.
I am SO excited to hear your story and be able to tell that story through music. I have been writing music for over 20 years, and I am passionate about creating beautiful, meaningful lyrics that are personal to you and unique to your story. Music is such a compelling way to express emotions we can’t through words alone. Together, we can inspire, excite, unify, and motivate through the power of music. I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
