ZephyrHillMusic on SoundBetter

Today I help singers and songwriters explore their potential. - Bespoke lyrics for your songs - Top-lines for your songs - Translate your lyrics to English - Song critiques (lyrics and/or production)

My experience includes being mentored by Ray Davies (The Kinks), and Dominic King (Stardust, Music sounds better with you) - I've learnt to work fast and to a high standard as a given. I love to work with strong images and honest emotions, expressing them in new ways. My lyric writing has been described as ‘excellent’.

I will write a bespoke lyric for your song, matching your melody or track as required.
I can also write a melody / top line for you, just let me know what you need, and I will do my best to accommodate.

If English is not your natural language, I can help with translations for your songs.

I also offer song reviews of either just lyrics, or lyrics & production. This is a comprehensive written review and I will offer suggestions of what to do to improve the song and/or production.

If you need something else, just let me know how I can help your song move forward.

    Hugh has been a pleasure to work with. It makes it easy when the material is top quality. Great music and great lyrics. He knew what he wanted and was able to express his ideas about the performance in a very courteous and professional manner. I look forward to working with him again.

    Hugh is an excellent communicator and is aware of the components that a well planned song should have. He is also analytical about the marketability of songs. Thanks.

    Hugh was as usual - professional, on time, consistent and responsive. He's so creative, his lyrics tell a story and paint a whole world at the same time. Looking forward to working with him again!

    I had a great experience working with Hugh. He was responsive, thoughtful and willing to spend the time communicating with me. He brought a fresh sensibility to my original lyrical draft that opened up new options for the song. Thank you, Hugh.
