  • Songbay provide a unique service. There is nothing else on the market that allows independent songwriters and lyricists to sell their work in this way. 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

  • Move Like An Angel

    By Plasma Baby
    It’s a trouble
    It’s a trouble
    It’s a trouble

    Verse 1
    De tangle me
    Out of daily pressure
    Out of forget, remember
    All these tiny things
    Taking up my space

    It’s a trouble
    It’s a trouble
    Move like an angel
    Move like an angel
    Got to get out of this model
    On the double
    It’s a trouble

  • Time to Soar

    By Geraldine Taylor
    Verse 1
    Like a hummingbird with wings to fly, emerging forward towards the sky
    Ever receptive to the dream, for all that you’ve witnessed or ever seen
    Release and so defy, no greater time to try, just hold on, trust and so rely
    Much higher than the fall, it’s time to give your all
    To the promises you’re believing for

    Five minutes in heaven,
    The best five minutes I ever had.
    We were at a pizza parlor,

    She was sitting next to me,
    Her kids were there too.
    Her kids had unusual names,
    Red, White and Blue..

    Her husband died a war hero,
    It happened a while ago.
    This was the first time she's been out,
    Her he...

    I Live for what I can take
