Lyric-to-Song. Why do lyricists need this service?

We know that it can be frustrating when you do not have an outlet for the words you’ve created and love. In addition, it can be almost impossible to break into the music industry with lyrics alone since most publishers do not accept ‘lyric only’ submissions.

So how do you find and collaborate with trustworthy composers and musicians (with a proven track record) who are willing and able to turn your lyrics into completed songs? That’s where we come in – Our lyric-to-song service – does exactly this – and more! Show us your lyric and we’ll turn it into a professionally recorded original song, based entirely around your stylistic requirements.

We add music to your lyrics!

We provide a service to help Songbay lyricists turns their lyrics into songs- the cost of this service to you is heavily subsidised from other areas of the company. The true cost, that is, if you were to walk into a professional studio and ask for song to be written from scratch, then recorded, mixed and produced by a professional creative team of composers, session musicians and producers, would be very much higher than the fee you pay- so a few thousand dollars instead of a few hundred dollars is about the true price! A quick numbers count should help to make this clear-The average song from start to finish takes us around 7 to 21 days to complete, with at least 2 -5 entire days spent recoding in the studio. So our fee to you, divided by the entire production team (5-10 people on average), including singers, musicians, composers, engineers, producers) and the hours worked, doesn’t go very far. In fact, it expires within the first few hours!

So as well as turning your lyric into a song- you get to own 50% of this new creation (50% of the composing and 50% of the publishing rights to the song to be precise). We retain the other half, in the hope that we might one day be able to share with you in any future profits or at the very least, might recoup our production costs!

Lyric-to Song – Methodology

Our approach is the same for all lyric-to-song versions, we first check the stylistic requirements and any melodic or harmonic ideas that you may already have. We can, of course, advise on all of this. We may suggest slight lyric changes to help with rhythmic flow, or even additional lyric content for contrasting bridge sections, intros, and outros, etc, or for linking one section to another. Once we have a clear directional overview, we make a start with the composing of melodic and harmonic ideas emanating from the lyric. We always work from the lyric, never the other way round, i.e., we never superimpose music onto the text. Our music evolves naturally from the lyric, giving all our songs musical synergy.
In terms of the time frame, we usually send a rough sketch to the user within 48 hours. Once the song is fully composed, we then record it with the required instrumentation/ session musicians. It is then mixed and professionally produced and delivered back to you in professional audio WAV, MP4 and MP3 formats.
