Arlis Albritton on SoundBetter

I've written songs for Luke Bryan, Vandoliers, Straight No Chaser, Home Free, Jamey Johnson, Diamond Rio, Parmalee and more. I've had songs on the Billboard chart. The one thing I've learned is whether its pop, country or Americana the story has to sing.

-Reach out to me with information on your project. We will discuss the particulars.
-If you have an album but a particular style of song that is missing. Let's fill that gap.
-I will take your idea, poem, outline, tracks, or lyrical topic and start writing it. If there is no track, I'll write it on guitar. No worries there.
-I will send a guitar/vocal, recorded on my phone for reference and demonstration purposes. So you can get the idea or topline melody.
-Whether you have a movie script and need a song to match the scene or you started a song and just can't finish it. I'm here to help. Maybe you are stuck and just need options, or you have a chorus but no verses or vice versa.
-I want you to LOVE the song. That's what this is all about. I usually try to stick with two re-writes/edits because I know the artistry has to be right.
-I do NOT mix, master, or demo the song.
-I focus 💯 % on writing the song that’s why I don’t do tracks. Quality of lyric and melody come first for me.
-All songs are an even split amongst all songwriters/publisher involved unless you would like to pay a premium to have a work for hire.

    Arlis has done a stunning job. He took my song, that I wrote a few years ago, to a complete new level. The story came to life, and the corrected chorus got stuck in my head after listening it only one time.

    Another great experience working with Arlis. He's friendly, creative, talented and prompt. This is the 4th time I've hired Arlis for songwriting. I gave him a basic concept and he sent me a guitar/vocal demo of fleshed out song with original melody and lyrics. It's always a very smooth process, and his songs ideas are delightfully creative. I can't wait to work with him again!

    PROJECT
    Arlis wrote song lyrics and song music inspired by a self help blog article I liked.

    COMMUNICATION
    Arlis proactively reached out to me to let me know when he:
    -- 1 -- was going to read the blog article
    -- 2 -- finished reading the blog article
    -- 3 -- would start his songwriting process

    Arlis replied to my questions within a couple of hours

    DELIVERABLES
    -- guitar vocal MP3 file
    -- song lyrics with major chord notation

    Arlis also recommended two vocalists for the song.

    Arlis is a great writer, creator, teacher, and man. He showed genuine care in his guidance of both piecing together and ultimately realizing the far-from-perfect idea I had initially presented to him, and constructed a song that I would not have been able to write on my own.

    Couldn't have asked for a better guy for the job - looking forward to the next one already!

    The ability to take a mass of lines, turn them into a story, match a melody and make an impact with the combined forces is what Arlis brings each and every time! Arlis is a great communicator and really digs in with the questions to make sure he is capturing what is needed.
    This was no easy project and Arlis got to the point and was very objective in helping to bring out the story.

    Simply said, Arlis will make your song better! Start your next project with him, you won't regret it!

    Arlis has a gift for putting words to music. He is way to humble and has a great history in the music industry. No matter what your project entails, you are going to get a great value and a song that is beyond expectations. The turnaround was quick and Arlis is a true professional in every manner.

    Project specific, what Arlis did to transform my words to song was amazing. I think, just like with marketing, less is more. Best said, I will work with Arlis again.

    I hired Arlis to help write a song I had in my head. Arlis is great with capturing what may be in your head onto paper. However it didn't stop once he wrote a song. After talking with me about my project like a professional he is, he then pitched me songs he had already written that may fit with my project. Arlis is a great songwriter. Im thankful I hired him because he's also someone I can lean on with questions from his years of experience in the business. I can't praise him enough. 10+ stars.
