Do you know the feeling when you hear that one tune that immediately brings back special memories?
The song that played when you had your first kiss, the song you sang to your children when they were little, the song you were dancing to when he proposed, the song that you just cannot stop singing because it means so much to you.
The song that perfectly describes how you feel. The song that feels like it was written for you and about you.
These songs are usually written for other people & you can relate to them. But how about a song that is truly dedicated to you?
I've always been fascinated by people's stories and most of my songs are written about other people. Maybe you have all these emotions and you cannot put them to words. I don't need an entire letter to know how you feel. Based on clues you give me I can get a sense of your story and turn it into a song.
How does it work?
You can purchase a custom song that will honour a special moment / person in your life. My job is to bring YOUR story to life.
All you need to do is contact me and tell me whom I should write for and what's the occasion. It can be someone's birthday, a wedding song, an anniversary gift, welcoming song for a newborn baby... you name it. I've even written a song to win back a friendship.
Usually, I charge 400€ (incl.VAT) for a custom song that takes 1 month to deliver. The price varies a little depending on how fast I have to compose. You pay in two halves: one half as down payment and the other upon delivery.
Material gifts fade, a custom song lasts forever.
HOW TO ORDER A CUSTOM SONG.
How did this idea start?
In my world, a song is a gift and a message. I deeply relate to other people's stories. Growing up I discovered that everytime something major happened to people I cared about, I started writing a song to make them feel better, to help them deal with their struggle or to celebrate a great moment in their lives. That's how I created for example most of the songs from my first album. Miners is about a friend who had to deal with psychological abuse, I wrote Telepathy for someone who had been bullied at work etc.
So I thought, why not make this "a service" for those who don't write songs but would like to give them to others or themselves?
In 2013 I raised money to fund my second album through a crowd-sourcing campaign. People pre-ordered the second CD or some photos and paid for them. One of the items for sale was a custom song. Six people ordered a song!
I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to make it a tradition.
How can I write about someone I don't know?
I've written for a toddler and for a 90-something-year-old lady - all of these people I didn't know personally but I was provided many clues and details so that I could make the song touching and personal.
For example the song for Lejla was ordered by her grandmother. She sent me a video of the little girl. Seeing Lejla on the video made it easy for me to write about her and for her.
When I was writing the song Rain as a birthday gift for Fon, her husband sent me beautiful drawings of her. In addition to that, Fon's loved ones wrote something about her, how she is as a person, what she means to them.
Reading about these special people inspired me a lot. I believe people deserve recognition and it was very moving to read how important Fon and Lejla are to their loved ones.
