  • Songbay provides artists of all genres and experience levels a place to promote their work on a global scale. Their service and support is top notch. As a developing lyricist, Songbay provided me the opportunity to connect with the music community and license my first song.

  • 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

  • If You Were My Girl

    By James Osswald
    You're a small town girl
    You haven't seen the world
    I'm a big city boy
    Who has all the toys
    We make a great pair
    You know that's rare
    I hope you can see
    Life is better with me

    If you were my girl
    I would take you round the world
    Buy you some shoes that fit just right
    Go on the town and dance all night

  • Platter Girl

    By Brooke Allyson
    Verse 1
    While they were smoking
    She kicked it to the curb
    While they were drinking
    She locked her self away
    And prayed and prayed
    You’d make her stronger
    Please don’t let her give in
    She’s takin’ two steps back
    Just to move forward again
    She thinks about the time
    When it was all a thrill
    She could carry it...

    By misticdawn13
    in this matter of complications, i stand in indifference
    unable to grasp the full spectrum of understanding
    strategically hidden within her emotional infancy
    (a safe haven with logical interference)
    she is the controlling force of foolish actions
    yet a necessity for experience
    (she who cannot be slain)
    in search of the midnigh...

  • Go About Your Day (for James G.)

    By Asylum Avenue
    Used to have lofty ambitions
    Used to have noble intentions
    Used to have aspirations
    Beyond the typical here-say
    Then one morning, I slept in
    The daylight rays they crept in
    And the custodians of deflation swept in
    And eased my righteous pain
    They told me, we’ll get the mess
    You just go about your day

    Custer took to his ...
