Order a Custom Song


Interested in hearing your own or a friend or family member’s story in song? You have come to the right place. I work one-on-one with people to turn their spoken stories into a songs, and I would be honored to work with you.

A custom song costs $200.

I ask for an hour consultation (in person or via Skype or Google Hangout), where I capture your story verbatim, shape it into a poem, and ask you to sing through the words of the refrain.

After the consultation, it is up to you how much you would like to be involved. I can write the song from our work together, or we can continue to work together and share song files by email or Google Drive to complete the song.

The finished product is an mp3 recording, Word documents for the songwriting process (original story, free verse, finished lyrics and chords). For an additional fee, I can put together a music video with images that you provide.

You also receive my unending gratitude, along with the knowledge that you have helped to create a unique piece of art that is now a folk song to be passed from one generation to the next.

If you would like a professional recording of the song, I am happy to work with a local recording studio to make this happen. There will be an additional fee for the time it takes to record, along with the fees charged by the recording studio.

I look forward to working with you!
