Songsculptor is your Musical Ghostwriter

For those of you who ask why my service is so much more reasonably priced than other similar services the answer is that I am primarily retired now from fifty years in the Music Business as a Songwriter/Composer, Producer/Arranger and Studio Musician. I do this now to to keep myself busy doing that which I have loved doing all my life, and to suppliment my retirement income in a modest way.

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.  Songsculptor's "Work For Hire" Service

What is "Work For Hire" ? 

Work 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) 100 Percent  - no 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 > WHY 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 musical expertise 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.

Work For Hire is for those of you who would prefer to own 100 percent rights to your song, (Words AND Music). 

In Summary >  you hire me to compose the music to your lyrics and record a Professional Demo for you.  With "WORK FOR HIRE" the finished song (Words AND Music), and the "Song Production" belongs to YOU  

- no splits - no cuts -  You own the resulting song (words and music) and the Song Production) 100 Percent
