Do you remember what you were doing when you were eleven years old? I often think of how optimistic I was. I thought I could do anything, and I did. I used to have an old cassette player that I’d use to record music off the radio. Then I’d listen to it over and over and over so I could memorize all of the lyrics. (No internet then, kids.)
One Christmas, I got a karaoke machine. Why do I bring this up, you might ask? Well, the karaoke machine had 2 cassette players. This meant that one could be playing while the other was recording. I would harmonize over myself, and even play my flute- a duet with my own voice and instrument. I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I also started writing songs when I was eleven. They weren’t good, mind you. But you’ve gotta start somewhere. Am I right?
This is the part of the conversation where you ask me what the songs were about and how they sounded. Then I tell you there is no WAY I’d sing you one of those songs now. Too embarrassing. Then you’d persuade me and I’d give in.
So, here it is. One of the songs went something like this:
“I was sitting all alone when you called me on the telephone.
When I took the phone off the hook, saw a mirror and gave myself that look.
When you told me our love had died, I wasn’t very satisfied.”
I’m not lying. This was the first verse of one of the very first songs I wrote. I bet you feel a little bit better about yourself right now, eh? (Hey, at least I had mastered rhyming!)
But let me get to the point.
I’ve been writing songs for a long time now, and I absolutely LOVE IT. (I like to think I’ve gotten a little better at it.)
Just a few years ago I started writing songs for family members and friends, and it has taken off! I’m now getting many requests to write songs for anniversaries, songs for babies, weddings, businesses, songs for mothers and fathers, and songs for loved ones.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to get a custom song written for someone you love. AND – if you think that’s something you’d like to try, I have a special offer. (If you’re thinking it’s not for you, keep reading because there’s something in it for you too!)
I’m offering 50% off any custom song package from now until January 31st.
Now, this doesn’t need to be a Valentine’s Day gift, however, if it is, I can only take 2 more custom song clients before Valentine’s Day. (I know in the video I say 3, but since filming I’ve had another song come in that I’ll have to finish by then too!)
But, let’s say you’re looking for a song to be written for a later date: Mother’s Day, Christmas, Anniversary, etc…
You can get the half price song ordered now, and you can be added to the queue for after Valentine’s Day.
Now, those of you who do not necessarily want a custom song written, I have some great news. Let your friends and family know about this special offer, and for every person you refer that orders a custom song, you’ll get $500. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family to let us know when they order that YOU referred them.
Long story short: I love writing songs so much. It brings new friends into my life, it allows me to tap into a moment, a lifetime, an emotion, and it creates opportunities for me to share the everlasting gift of music. Think about it. A song literally lasts forever. It’s one of the few things you can give that will never run out. It’s one of a kind.
If you made it this far reading, I commend you. If you didn’t, hopefully you’ll watch this video:
