I need someone who can compose in the country-folk vein to write tunes for my lyrics.
I would want it to be someone who likes that genre of music and likes - to some extent at least - my lyrics. I would propose that we show each other a couple of samples of our work and see whether we'd mesh. I would pay by the job. I have suggested an amount, but am willing to negotiate depending on what happens. You'd have to tell me what your expectations are. If necessary, I am willing to make changes to my lyrics to help someone compose to them more effectively. I am happy to listen to advice.
