Jessica songwriting …

May 9, 2017

This post is part of a series where I’m posting songs that my singers are co-writing.  Today is Miss Jessica.  This young lady was intent on writing a rap … not my forte.  But, I’m not one to be beaten by a challenge so after educating myself on Nikki Minaj 😁 and listening to many Garageband loops, Jessica and I came up with the following fun lyrics and tune … (quickly becoming one of my favorite songs!)

Victor songwriting …

Today’s post is part of a series where I will be showing snippets of the songs my singers have co-written with me.  Victor is ten years old and has been with me since he was five!!  He has a reputation for busting out his ” dance moves” during recitals, so, it seemed fitting he should write a song about dance.  Here he is recording a demo track on the chorus of Feel The Rhythm
