La Rata on SoundBetter

I will write your Lyrics and Toplines (Vocal Melodies) about the feelings of sadness, darkness, loneliness, frustration, breakups, heartbreaks, depression, emptiness. I can write both in English and French.

Are you an Artist struggling to express your feelings?
Are you frustrated because you can't figure out how to convey your message AND be catchy at the same time?

Hi, my name is La Rata, songwriter from Paris, France.

I specialize in the following:

- Writing lyrics about sadness, darkness, loneliness, frustration, breakups, heartbreaks, depression, emptiness (in English / French)
- Painting a picture in the mind of the listener
- Recording a catchy topline, vocal melody, vocal demo or hook idea (to be re-sung by you)
- Turning concepts into usable material
- Upon request only: Edgy, politically engaged or socially conscious lyrics

What I WON'T do: Record high-quality audios that can be included directly into your song.

Prices depend on the services requested:
- Lyrics only / Lyrics and Topline
- Work for hire / Split publishing rights

I have played the Bass for bands with dozen of live gigs for 13+ years, which inspired me with a sense of both rhythm and melody. Bass has also forged my core values: Humility and teamplay.

I can work from any ideas and inspirations you may have to capture the right intention and emotion.
Message me with the most details available: Services requested, instrumentals, themes, inspirations, drafts.

    Very professional service, I asked La Rata to write lyrics for a guitar song and he sent them perfectly on time with no need to rework them behind. I highly recommend!

    Thanks La Rata !

    La Rata gave me great ideas my hook: Topline, lyrics... He had very creative and original ideas which made this particular track stand apart from other artists in my lane.

    I sent La Rata some ideas and themes, he was really reactive and helped me turn them into a hit track. 5/5 would recommend. Thanks again bro!

Interview with La Rata

  1. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  2. A: Artists sometimes ask what a "Topline" is. A Topline is a recording of a vocal melody, where I sing the lyrics I wrote for you. Please note this is not a high-quality recording meant to be directly included in your song. Instead, the value of a Topline is that it shows you how to sing the lyrics in a melodic and catchy way. Thanks to your initial ideas and both my lyrics and topline, you are all set to make a hit.

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: Once an artist contacts me, I always make sure to ask him/her targeted questions, in order to understand the context and the feelings he/she wants to convey with the song.

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: Lately, I've been really inspired by the emo rap genre, with artists such as Juice WRLD, RIP. His lyrics and melodies are touching, relatable and instantly catchy.

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  8. A: Most of the artists I work with send me an instrumental or a type beat, along with an idea or concept for their song. They ask me to write lyrics around this idea and to record the topline (vocal melody) to sing those lyrics.
