While I do a little bit of everything in the songwriting process, as a songwriter, I would consider myself to primarily be a lyricist first and foremost. Words are powerful and can take you on a journey of emotion, and for me that is what great song writing is all about. My writing style tends to be conversational.
Steven is a lyricist/songwriter from Texas with strong ties to Nashville via his co-writers and producers he works with. Steven has been a finalist in several national songwriting competitions, received recognition from legendary songwriters Clay Mills and Marty Dodson for his songs and currently has an active hold with a major label artist. His collaborators include staff writers at major publishing companies in Nashville and finalists from Major television competition shows. Steven specializes in modern Country music and keeps his ear to the ground of the most current trends.

Interview with Steven B.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I know many great professional musicians. If you are looking for something specific, just ask me! I'm sure I will know someone I can refer you too!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Currently specializing in country/pop-country, however I have spent years writing contemporary Christian and rock/folk singer-songwriter as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Sometimes knowing what words you do NOT need is as important as knowing what words you need. Many writers use me as an editor just to go through their lyrics and "trim the fat" and find words that are not needed to create space and simplicity to the lyric flow.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My co-writers would probably say what I bring to a song is great visuals and detail with an analytical view. A well thought-out angle.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: There really is no 1 way I work. Although, I will typically start my writing process with a tittle, and try to write the chorus/hook of the song first. I find that a great song has an easier journey getting where it needs to go when you start by knowing where you want to end up.
