Tim hysen on SoundBetter

I will write you the lyrics that your song deserves. Been writing since as far as I can remember and it’s my true passion in life. Professionally I’ve been putting words to music since 2000 with over 90 songs in my catalogue.

I specialize in rock or ballad lyrics, preferably songs with a ‘deeper’ meaning. Been a vocalist for over 20 years and for me the lyrics is the heart and soul accompanied by the music.
Together we can have a discussion what you feel the music you created want to tell the listeners, or if you would let me interpret the meaning myself.
Together we can make just not people humming the melody of your song, but also singing the words.

    I’ve done quite a few tracks with Tim now and it just gets easier and more fun every time. He always sends full stem sets so I can control my mix while tracking, and always throws a cool challenge at me. Nice one bro!

    What can I say, 4th time working with Tim already and as usual it’s fun as hell and a sweaty fast paced punk workout! He makes it easy every time by providing all the stems for me to create a mix with, and writes music that’s fun to play from start to finish. Thanks for hiring me again Tim!

    This is my third time working with Tim and each time it is more of a pleasure and easier to do. He certainly knows how to supply a high energy track that takes every bit of sweat from me, but also pushes my creativity and accuracy. He is an absolute gentleman and as always I appreciate his combination of specific instructions while leaving me space to do what I feel. I can’t wait for the next one! Thanks for unleashing my punk spirit Tim, I never get to play this kind of stuff in bands!

    It was great working on Tim's music! Great tunes , very easy going and direct person. Knowing from the start exactly what he needs, Tim made it really easy for me to create the ideal grooves for his track! I would definitely work with Tim again!

    Well, what can I say?! Working with Tim again was a real pleasure and I really appreciate his directness and that he knows what he wants. I did two drafts for him, the first to test ideas out - Tim immediately picked up what he liked and what to improve on, so that equipped me to deliver the real deal. This kind of interaction with a client is the best to me, because it frees me do my absolute best. Thank you for hiring me again Tim!

    Tim was super cool to work with, he got hold of me in the morning and explained himself really well, with a clear guide track. This helped me understand what he needed so I could start work immediately and we had the track by the afternoon. I really appreciated that he knew what he wanted; he offered to provide full stem sets for the track so I could create my own submix which I thought was really cool. Everything was straightforward, quick and detailed. Looking forward to more collaborations!
