I am a songwriter and have been so for quite some time but only the last 2 years more avidly as now I have the time. I did sing for a while (16 years) singing covers of 50's 60's 70's artists like Elvis, Roy Orbison, Billy Fury, Shakin Stevens etc etc. I gave that up in 2008. I never sang my own material, but I have recorded a couple of my own songs myself and released them in 2019 independently. If you would like to licence any of my songs, I also have backing tracks for 90% of them, which are available so you can edit (as I know many people like to do that especially for movies), and also to use for live performances if required. Generally I would like my songs pitched by publishers to artists who will then record and release them.
