I may not be the world's greatest composer – and God knows I'm no stunning singer either. I am quite proud of my lyrics though. I see myself more as a lyricist than a songwriter. Sometimes, however, I feel like writing a whole song.
I've written quite a few over the years and God knows I would do some of them very differently today ... but some I am still extremely proud of. I'm self-taught. And this isn't easy.
The recorded MP3s are low quality demos and can be downloaded for private use. Any commercial use of my songs is not allowed without contacting me and making a deal first (duh)! I've got some lyrics videos for you as well. And PDF files with the original lyrics I wrote. Lots to explore!
If you happen to love my songs or simply realize that I'm a genius, feel free to contact me. I strongly believe in cooperation and therefore I'd love to work with other aspiring artists or maybe get in touch with a record label someday.
I'm eager to get to know other musicians and work out ways to create art together. There are so many fantastic singers out there – and I'd love to hear them sing my lyrics. If you are an artist and you've written some catchy tunes but you can't find the right words to make your song complete: Just write me! Send me your melodies, your thoughts, your ideas. I'll do my best to give your song the words it deserves. Don't worry about payment either. Money is not why I'm doing this right now.
Here are some songs I wrote and recorded with someone I met online. I think they turned out pretty great.
No Raisins, Rupert!
In 2009, I co-founded a band called No Raisins, Rupert! which – in my opinion – was getting pretty good at writing and recording various types of catchy songs. Apparently I was the only one who thought so ... or maybe I was the only one not interested in playing live. Or maybe I was pushing too hard. Anyway, we suffered the same fate most bands do. Pity!
