    Bring me one of your personal stories or a piece of your family history and I will immortalize it in an original song for you. I feel called to convey that I really love doing this. It’s so special when someone entrusts their story to me. We’ll talk on the phone, I’ll take notes, ask questions, discuss things like, tone, mood, how you’d like the song to make the listener feel. I’ve written a song for someone that centered around pimento cheese. I’ve written a song for someone that dealt with addiction. Bring me your happiest, your saddest, and anything in between. I’m really looking forward to hearing your story. I'll record a YouTube video of your song (and, if requested, I'll send you an MP3 as well). You'll also receive the bonus track, full album download and your name in the liner notes. (NOTE: this makes an excellent gift! And, if you order quickly I can get this done for you before Christmas!)
