Hi there and thank you for checking me out it is very appreciated! I have been writing and composing acoustic songs and would really like to become part of a team and try to get my creation Electrik Emblem to the next level. I have been working alone for the past few years and I think it is time to start working with other people in the industry.
My name is Matthew Patrick MacDonald and I have created a project named Electrik Emblem which consists of self written songs which I then composed on an acoustic guitar after finding the right chord progression.
I started this project in the form of a podcast on the Anchor.fm platform and after almost two years of writing and recording they took me offline without any notice whatsoever. I then started to use Distrokid and just continued to write and compose like I had been doing.
Writing songs has become something I really enjoy doing and would like to find a way to do it full time if I could find someone to actually take the time and review the words I have written and actually listen to the songs and see the same vision that I see.
I have spent so much time writing and composing these songs that my wife actually left me because it became my number one priority and she could not take it anymore, so I really hope that all I have created will eventually become successful.
My inspiration comes from artists like Tupac Shakur, The Doors, Guns N Roses and the name Electrik Emblem actually came to me in a dream and to be honest some of my lyrics have come from dreams.
I want to thank you for reading my pitch and description and I am praying you consider myself and my creation for consideration.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
