Mark Paul (England) on SoundBetter

I play, compose music and lyrics for songs, either from scratch or existing original material in the following main genres: pop, rock, punk, alternative, electronic (and more...). Tell me what you need and we'll take it from there.

Present me with a description of what you would like to achieve with your idea, including the genre, feel, style, tempo, kind of instruments and anything else you would like in your song. If you want, let me know if there any influences you would like me to base the song on, for example a particular singer or band. Early versions of what I create for you can be tweaked to your liking until you are satisfied with the result.

My strengths are in song writing, singing lead and backing vocals, acoustic, classical, electric guitar rhythm/note playing and bass. I can also play keys (synth, strings, percussion, etc..).

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    A pleasure to work on another of Mark's tracks - his fantastic song 'Blindsided'. Mark's songwriting talent is matched by his skills both as a musician and a recording engineer (all instruments recorded perfectly and perfectly in time!). Very talented, highly recommended.

Otherwise, I could have lyrics from which I create a melody and vibe for through music in either a particular genre or natural flow

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: If I'm hired to write a song for someone, I will strive to make that song 'theirs' by trying to understand exactly what they want from the start.

  26. A: Use quality equipment from the start, especially microphones and the correct studio environment otherwise it'll be too difficult to achieve a great sound when its time for production. When you record, whether instrumentally or vocally, immerse yourself in the song's moment to capture the feel
