Lyricist Hoping to Find My Own Voice

I'm a video producer and lyricist in Los Angeles. After writing many songs for others, I thought I would take this period to work on my own voice and music.

This is the first song I wrote, with a former pop-star named Jeremy Jordan.

Here's a song with another artist named Mitchell.

Here's my most recent song with Mitchell.

I've written a new album of songs, and intend to record them myself after I get my voice to a level I'm proud of. It's fun to watch everyone's exciting journey with their voices. I'll post my new songs after I've recorded them.

    Hey Gary,

    Really nice songs, really nice. I'm in the opposite of you where I'm a singer (also still learning) but trying to figure out songwriting and melody creation.

    Good luck in your journey and look forward to following your progress!

    Hi Danny,
    Thanks! I'm not a musician but I have learned to record my own demos. I'm trying to get to the point where I don't need to use a producer to finish my songs. Some tools that have helped me produce demos are Pro Tools (you can get a free version called Pro Tools First on Avid .com), and Native Instruments Komplete 12 Ultimate for a variety of instruments to experiment with.

    Welcome to the course mate! Heaps of like minded people here, I would eventually like to work up to writing and producing my own music and do videos like you. Im only just starting out with my own voice and garage band, but im much more comfortable in final cut!

    The great thing is that we have all of these powerful, inexpensive tools now for music and video production. I have one client who requires Final Cut. It's good. I haven't tried Garage Band, but Pro Tools covers what I need.
