I have a 4.9/5 rating on Fiverr for ghostwriting quality songs.
I'm Loreal. I've been a ghostwriter for a few years now and I love helping clients find the right lyrics for their songs. I've found that many of us can usually write the perfect melodies but have a hard time finding the words to fit them. That's where I come in! I take into consideration your sound, the topic/theme, and the overall "feel" of the song, then I write the lyrics to your instrumentation. I take pride in my songwriting and if the lyrics don't fit your idea the first time around, I'm always willing to revise it until it works.
I look forward to working with you!

Interview with Loreal
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It's not as easy as you think.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the song you're going for? What is the theme/idea of the song? Is there an artist/sound you're going for?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Tell me all your ideas! All of them. The more info I get, the more I can put into your song. Just jot down all your ideas and hand them to me. I'll take what I can and make something great.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A notebook, a pen, a guitar, a pocket knife, and some shoes.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I'm a writer at heart. So poems and song lyrics come to me pretty easily. I've been writing since high school and doing ghostwriting since college. So writing professionally, that's about 4 years now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Honest and vulnerable. Lyrics that we can all feel and relate to.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Muse. I'd love to see how Matt Bellamy comes up with his guitar riffs.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I think my lyrics fit mostly pop and rock songs. I can write rap songs, too, though. If I like the sound of the song, I can really write lyrics to anything.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My rhyme scheme is quite good. I also have great attention to detail, which shows in the lyrics. I'm great at writing lyrics for clients that have a hard time putting their feelings into words. I like to help people find the write words to express themselves.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to bring vulnerability to my songs. The small truths and details we all experience but sometimes look over. I want my lyrics to be relatable and touch those who hear the song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually, lyrics will just come at me out of nowhere and I write down the bits and pieces. Sometimes it flows out, sometimes it takes a few days or even months. If it's for a client, I ask what theme/sound they're going for, and then try to create lyrics that portray their own image. I take inspiration from their ideas and my own experiences. This takes me a few days.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Since I write lyrics, I mainly use my laptop. I also use my phone notes if I ever get a strike of inspiration for lyrics, which happens quite a lot. I have a basic microphone if needed.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I have many inspirations ranging from pop singers (Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga), to rock artists (Fleetwood Mac, The Cure) to rappers (2Pac). I take inspiration from all sorts of music and can appreciate the work that goes into creating a good song.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly write song lyrics for instrumentals.
