Custom songs take about 2 weeks to complete. If you need it sooner, contact me about a rush delivery.
When your custom song is finished, I will send you a link to a personal webpage where you can download the song and lyrics.
Once I receive your 50% deposit, I'll get started on your song. Preferred payment methods are Zelle, Venmo, or Paypal. It is also possible to use your credit card to pay with an additional 5% service fee. Sorry, no personal checks are allowed.
Custom songs are generally 2-4 minutes in length. Typical song form includes Verse 1, Chorus, Verse 2, Chorus, Interlude, Chorus. Sometimes there will be a section with new lyrics called a Bridge after the 2nd Chorus. But as a mentor of mine said, "Only add a bridge if there's a river to cross." 😉
I'd love to! Just give a little advance notice and we can make that happen. Check out my Events calendar to see what shows are happening near you. Or better yet, hire me for your private event or house concert and get a front row seat for even more of your favorite songs!
Yes! If you'd like your song to be available on all music streaming services, there is an option for that in the Add-Ons section of this website.
Yes! I can work with your lyrics/poetry. Contact me with more details and let's make this collaboration happen!
Sounds like fun! If you're able to record yourself, I can send you the track, you sing/play along with it, send me the new part you recorded, and I'll add it to the mix. If you'd like to hire another singer/player, we can certainly look into that as well. There is also a professional recording studio I work with in Menasha, WI that may be used to record you or your preferred singer/player. Contact me with more details and we'll work it out.
The copyright of a song inherently belongs to the songwriter. However, you will be granted a "personal use license" which allows you to download, share with friends, post on social media, use in a personal video or slide show...pretty much any way you want to use the song, as long as you are not making money with it.
I want you to be completely satisfied and delighted with your custom song. If you hear something that I mispronounced or misinterpreted about your story, I'd be happy to fix it for free. If you've changed your mind about the inclusion of certain names or details you provided, or you've changed your mind about the style of the song you requested, I'd be happy to fix that as well, though there would be a charge for the extra time involved. If you've just thought of more details you'd like to include, there is an option for adding an extra verse to your song on the Add-Ons page.
