|Welcome to The Songwriters' Forum - by Songwriters, for Songwriters! |

Here's a great opportunity for a lyricist that wants to get on a recording.
I have recorded an accompaniment for a song that needs lyrics.
It seemed that with current events dominating our lives, my planned
songwriting/demo recording seemed a bit irrelevant.
So, as a follow-up to the previous forum group effort,
That Thing Goin' 'Round, I wanted to try another project.
But this time I'll leave the lyric writing up to you.
The instrumental track I recorded is based on a pre-apocalyptic theme.
This concept is a play on the typical post-apocalyptic concepts we are
all familiar with. Like the Mad Max movies. Or my personal favorite,
The Book of Eli.
The difference being we are currently in a time that seems like the
dawn of the end times, therefore PRE-apocalyptic, rather than POST.
Songwriters will not be locked into this theme. Listen to the
accompaniment track and write what you think is appropriate.
Or follow the theme I had in mind when I recorded it. Your choice.
The winner will be decided by vote. I will create a poll for voting.
So, anyone on the forum can vote for the winner. I just ask that
you vote for someone other than yourself.
I'm putting the final touches on the accompaniment track. I will post it
to SoundCloud. Like all my music, free to listen, share and download.
I will add the vocals using the winning lyrics. And I may do more work
on the accompaniment to make it fit the lyrics/vocals.
The winner will be credited with lyric writing on the song, in the title area.
Let me know what questions you have and your level of interest in participation.

|Wonderful idea Steve! Great opportunity for lyricists to get their words put to music and recorded.
Also a distinct challenge in its own right to create a lyric for an existing piece of music rather than starting with a blank sheet of paper. Matching the mood, the rhythm and the timing.
Hope you get lots of takers. Looking forward to the next step.

Here's the link to the track.
Just uploaded this AM.
I hope to release contest details later today. (before the weekend)
