Have you heard the term
Ghost Writer? This is someone
who is normally associated with the world of books and helps an author (who is not an
expert in writing) to write a book. This is what I do in songwriting. I help
lyricists who know little or nothing about music turn their words into a commercially
viable finished song.
What is "Work For Hire"
For Hire is exactly what the name implies. You hire Songsculptor to
compose an original melody and chord progression to your lyric(s), and then
record your song for you, and you pay a flat fee
for doing so. The finished song
(Words AND Music) and "Song Production" then belongs to YOU > You
own the resulting song (words and music)
splits, no cuts. This is the technical meaning of the term "Work For Hire" (WFH)
as defined by the U.S. Library of Congress Copyright Office.
for those who ask
do I sell my musical compositions on a Work For Hire basis?

I have found over the
years that there is a large number of people that prefer to work on a Work For Hire basis where
they own 100 percent of the copyright. I also hold copyrights on over 3000
songs in my personal song catalog, many of which continue to be a recurring
source of royalty income. So now at this point in my career I prefer to
compose and record songs for other aspiring writers who may need some
from someone like myself. Composing and recording is what I love to do, and
if I can help someone else by doing that I consider myself truly blessed. It's as simple as that.
So if this type of arrangement is for you
please read on.
