Les Sampou on SoundBetter

Want to Sound Better? Need your lyrics and melodies to STAND OUT? You think your song is good already, but could be great with a little input? Or, you got a great track and need melody and lyrics? I'm new here at SB but I'm an old hat at writing songs, so get in touch and we figure out how I can help you develop and finish your song.

I was the 2021 26th Annual U.S. SONGWRITING CONTEST WINNER FOR LYRICS. Words & melodies are my forte. I'm prolific and fast and work well with all personalities and genres. Extra skill set: Experienced vocal coach and am happy to give a few free pointers if needed. Can also hook you up with pro producers and musicians to finish the job.

A Boston-based touring musician with many albums on Rounder Records and my own label, I have written hundreds of songs. I synch songs for TV/Film as well as collaborate with artists world wide.

Work: We start with understanding what you are trying to say (theme), what emotions prompted the song, and what is the attitude and style you want to convey to listeners. Next we polish what you got already and bring it to the next level with hooks and creative rhymes and a strong form.

Because I write in many styles, visit "Music By Genre" at www.LesSampouMusic.com. "Train of Hope"(above) is a new work for hire for a post pandemic theme and is a commercial example of my writing as opposed to something more intimate or quirky.

Possible Project Flow:
- Send me your lyrics, key, chart/chords. Discuss goals/theme.
- Drafts exchanges of changes to melody, form and lyrics.
- One revision is included; $100 each additional.
- Collaborations/royalty share can be discussed based on depth of project.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
