-- Personalized Songs Written For You
One of the coolest gifts you can give someone
is one most people don't even think of: a song, written
expressly for them.
SmithSongs have several things going for them:
- An unforgettable gift -- flowers fade, tchotchkes
get lost or broken, books are shelved... but a song lasts forever!
- Or, a great motivational or business tool -- get an Official Song for your team/business/whatever, with the option of getting radio-ready audio commercials
- Written and performed by Tom Smith, award-winning
singer-songwriter (heard on ABC, CBS, NPR, Dr. Demento, etc.)
- Written to your specifications, combining the details of your life with your desired thematic elements and in the musical style of your choice
- You get final approval over the music, lyrics, and subject matter
- Jewel case with professionally designed
label, tray card, insert, and lyrics included
This isn't slack work, either. Exhibit A of
what I've done on commission is "A
Dragon's Lullaby". (If you've reached this page without having
heard my music before, check out my
press kit for my credentials.) All of the songs on my albums Sins of Commission and Sins of Commission 2 were written for other people; you can click on the Death Sheep Radio link, below, and check 'em out.
The base price for a single song is $349. Writing
it will take some time -- even if I nail the idea and write the initial
lyrics within minutes, we'll likely interact for some fine-tuning (e-mail,
although phone contact is also possible) -- but it should be reasonably
timely, within six weeks or so and usually within a month. (Rush jobs
are doable; contact me for particulars.) I retain the rights the song,
and may use it how I see fit (although you will always receive credit
for the idea).
If you're paying for a song, especially as
a gift, you want it to be good. I don't want to take your money
for hack work -- my pride, skill, and reputation are on the line. And
you want a song that touches your heart, makes you laugh, makes you cry,
makes things special -- a song you'll want to listen to and sing again
