My specialty's quite niche, but it might be exactly what you're looking for...

Hi there, and thanks for considering me as your songwriter! I've been writing both as a hobby and professionally for about 10 years now, with most of my experience in pop and indie.

I listen to a variety of international artists for inspiration, so let me know what style you'd like, and we'll try to make it happen! A few of my favorite artists: Utada Hikaru, Yuki Kajiura, Hiroyuki Sawano, Mariah Carey, P!nk, Sia, Björk, Stromae ... I'm quite flexible, so please get in touch with your requests!

I offer two services: Standard and Specialty.

The standard is simply writing lyrics or lyrics+vocal melody. I'd need to hear your instrumental track, and we can discuss your vision for your song and the sound you want.

My specialty is a bit more niche: making English versions of foreign language songs! Think "You Raise Me Up" and its Spanish counterpart "Por Ti Seré. The sample track I have here on my profile, "My Lady," is my English rendition of Utada Hikaru's "Ore no Kanojo (My Girlfriend)."

My experience is mostly in Japanese songs (my biggest dream is to write anime themes), though I've also made English versions of songs originally in German, Chinese, and even Hungarian!

Whether you want a standard song or an English rendition of a foreign song, I'd be happy to work together with you to bring your vision to life. Thanks again, looking forward to hearing from you!
