The Songbay team are very supportive or their artists. They regularly promote their users on Twitter and often retweet promotional tweets posted by artists. The Songbay team are also easy to contact and happy to help with any problems or questions via email or Twitter. I was also invited to write an article for Songbay's blog, which led to paid teaching work

  • I'm here

    By Ben Furlow III
    I’m a ten by no means
    Didn’t come by angel wings
    But I’m a good man

    I’m no Lancelot
    Work hard for what I got
    But I’m a good man

    Chorus
    And I’m here
    For the long haul
    Like an oak tree standing tall
    Till death do is part
    No life left in this old heart
    I’m a good man
    And I’m here

    I’m no Adonis
    No...

    Verse 1
    In ancient times, subdued by Roman rule
    A star shone bright to light a world so cruel
    A baby’s cry was heard, and darkness soon took flight
    And hope returned upon this Christmas night

    Hail the babe who came to save us
    Alleluia, he’s here to r...

  • Breathe Child

    Breathe Child
    (Written by Michael Cazier)

    Verse 1

    Have you seen a face in the streets at night
    Have you not witnessed a shadow shines so bright
    Crushed dreams, thousands of big fish small fish swim
    In tiny jars of hope, where is the Pope
    When children forced to play  
    Games of lust games of prey from morning until dust
