Islandwriter on SoundBetter

I am an experienced lyricist with many songs being currently performed. Have been a gigging vocalist/rhythm guitar player for many years. I am strong on lyrics, weak on writing melodies. Would like to find collaborators for this purpose. I'm easy to work with, creative, and open to most genres.
