So, you music types.

Post by Mercedes on Wed Dec 03, 2008 1:27 pm

My friend writes lyrics and wants to know how to break in. She does write music, but her focus is mostly lyrics. Is there someplace helpful that I can send her?

Dunno...songwriting is a very tough gig to get these days, even harder if you don't pen music to accompany your words...Harder still if you aren't penning insipid shit the likes of which glut the airwaves.

I'm not sure there's much of a market for lyricists, unless she can find a songwriter that can't do lyrics. There are many great musicians that can't write words.

Mercedes,

Writer's Digest used to have a book called "Songwriter's Market". Not sure if it's still in publication but might be worth taking a look into.

I would try to hook up with a specific band if I were her, especially an up and coming band. Music boards are a good place to establish contacts.
