Custom Composed Songs
Thanks for your interest in custom made songs. I have been making up songs for people for over 30 years, but recently the feedback I've received has made me want to offer this to the general public.
I have created songs for weddings, funerals, birthdays, healing, women's groups, healing services, and religious retreats plus thousands of songs created spontaneously in my concerts over the years. Here are comments from just a few of the people who have requested a custom made song on CD.
"These lyrics are just beautiful and will be a great blessing to all those dear African caregivers at the AIDS hospice where we are taking your song for a healing ritual."
-Lynne Curtis, Episcopal Deacon
"The women in my group just loved the song you wrote for us! Thank you does not BEGIN to cover it."
-Kathy Davis, organizational development consultant
"My song, 'Born to Be in Bliss,' is a potent reminder of who I am even when the old patterns threaten to drown me."
-Sudha Carolyn Lundeen, R.N., wellness consultant
"My dear friend Silver loved her "Song for Silver" - it gave her heart a real lift."
-Rebecca Stephens, yoga teacher, bodyworker
You can request your own song (for yourself, a group, or a loved one) in the following formats:
1) Sweet and Simple: Just me, singing at my Steinway grand. You e-mail me the answers to certain questions about yourself or the person it is for and I send you a CD or an MP3 at your discretion. $499
2) Edited and Produced: I send you a rough idea which you approve or send feedback. I then produce it with appropriate instrumentation in my studio, possible with some harmony on the vocals, and deliver a CD with label and cover graphics or an MP3 file with lyric sheet. $1199
3) Full production: We hire top notch vocalists* to deliver the song suitable for album quality with full instrumentation. The CD comes with a front and back cover with full color graphics that you approve and can send art in for us to include. $2499.
There is an obvious and easy upgrade path from option 1 to 2 to 3. If you love the song, we can always add more to it, with any number of options in between. These are guidelines and can be negotiated depending upon what you need and want.
*See (or listen to!) Human Heart for a sample of many of the fine vocalists available.
