  • 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

    By Rui Pedro Da Silva
    Have no time


    Dad keeps on asking
    Why don’t I get a job
    If I don’t like working for him
    Mum says live your life son
    As long as the money keeps on coming in

    Work was never my strong point
    I just wanted to sing in a band
    Girlfriends come and go nowadays
    I live life in the fast lane

    I have no time……..

    By Brena
    Nobody I knew, knew me like you
    Nobody I knew, loved me like you
    Nobody I knew, could do the things you do
    And since nobody knew, I’m stuck here missing you.

    You were my rock, you were my king, you were the only one I need.
    You were my man, part of our plan, you were my everything.
    I don’t know what the future holds, but ...
