I put lyrics to beats that will get people moving in their seats.
I have a knack for writing captivating material, in general, and also songs. Once I hear a track and I am given a theme/topic to work with, I can start putting ideas together almost immediately. As a linguist/language specialist, I tend to use unconventional words and rhymes to create impact.

Interview with Terri-Ann Barrett
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

A: I am inspired by Jonathan McReynolds and Beyoncé.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I don't have a studio; I just write in the peace and quiet of my home.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: One of the first steps in my process is to discuss my client's expectations. Once those are established, I listen to the track without the theme in mind just to get a feel of the music. Then, I listen with the theme in mind and start jotting down ideas. I am usually able to write at least the first verse and chorus in one go. I keep revising until it feels like something others would enjoy listening to. When I am satisfied with the end result, I send a draft to the client and go through the revision process, if necessary.
