I’m pleased to introduce myself to this fine group. I’m from WA state.

I’ve been doing lyrics for years, even decades. I started writing lyrics when the drummer of a local metal band ask me to write some lyrics for his band. I didn’t know much about it but I took it to task by studying up on it. I felt I had a knack for it as did he. The band went back to their day jobs but I kept writing.

I got interested in writing a lot of different genres and worked with various individual songwriters and bands over the years. I do blues, pop, adult contemporary, metal, rock, country and anything in between. I’m working with a few composers now, but I write faster than they compose and I’m find myself looking for new composers.

When I do a lyric, I typically do numerous rewrites until I have it perfect. Some take hours, others days, months and years. It’s an intense endeavor and a labor of love. I also add lyrics to completed songs.

I selected The Eagles, Lyle Lovett, Billie Holiday, and Metallica as my favorite musicians; but I love so many singers and groups of all different genres that my list is lengthy.

Looking forward to working with you. Thanks for your attention.

Sincerely, Charles
