Freelance Music Writer
Translate your talent and personality into words so that music lovers, audiences, and industry people can get to know you and understand what you and your music are about.
While songwriters, singers, soloists and bands are generally pretty good at what they do, they are not always as good at describing it to other people--giving people their log line or elevator pitch. Often, they aren't comfortable in that role either.
That's where a knowledgable, empathetic writer comes in handy.
Because I've been a composing and performing musician (as well as a huge fan) for a good portion of my life, I understand the artist's desire to communicate their message and to move audiences.
I can help you to distill the essence of your art and self into words that make you stand out clearly in peoples' minds.
Email me to discuss your project.
Musician Bio & Press Release Writer
A good artist bio or press release is like a book that you never want to end. It causes the reader to make a connection with the artist. When they are done reading, they want to continue the connection, which usually means purchasing your music or going to your show.
Your bio or press release can be the beginning of a beautiful relationship between you and your fans.
I'd be happy to help you to start making those connections.
Live Gig Review Writer
I've written for American Songwriter magazine and Songwriter's Square, primarily about--you guessed, didn't you?--songwriters. But I've written live gig reviews and CD reviews about bands and artists as well.
If you need a CD review written or have a gig in the Los Angeles area you'd like me to cover, email me with details.
