Jon Gibson, Songwriter - Music on SoundBetter


Before purchasing this service, I must be able to hear your idea first to determine whether or not I can help you with this service.  PLEASE READ CAREFULLY ALL OF THE THE SERVICE DESCRIPTION, THE Q&A, THE CO-WRITE INSTRUCTIONS, WHAT TO EXPECT, AND THE SONG ARRANGEMENT ACTIONS SECTIONS BEFORE MOVING AHEAD WITH THIS SERVICE.

THE SERVICE:  If your song catches my attention, I will send you a co-writer agreement for a fee of $500.00 in where I agree to co-write your song. The agreement will contain a start date with a deadline of no more than 3 business days for completion. If I can't get it to where I'm confident adding my name to it within the aforementioned time from the agreed upon start date, then I will gladly refund your entire fee the next day.


Have you come to a place in writing your song where you feel stuck?

Do you feel that it needs something more but you just can't see it?

Do you feel that experienced input can break the writer's block you may be experiencing?

Do you feel that a second ear and  a different perspective from another experienced professional can help bring you to completion?

Do you feel that a confident co-writer can help bring your creation to the place it needs to be, a production ready song?

If you've said yes to any of these questions, then you need a co-writer and you've come to the right place because I've been noted by my respected colleagues as being one of the most prolific and consistent writers of my day.  And I say this with all humility because it's just a gift and I wish to encourage your confidence in the results. I won't work on something if I believe there is no potential because I care about music and so I have no other option but to care about the potential of your song If I agree to work on it.

As I make mention on the Song Critique page: Make sure your song is ready before you enter into production because it can quickly become an unnecessary costly endeavor if you are not sure of where your going. This is part of what we used to call back in the day, pre-production. The next step in pre-production is to create a state-of-the-art work track to build your entire production on.  To check out this service, see the "Work Track" page.

NOTE TO THE SONGWRITER:  A good co-write is done by keeping as much of the original idea as possible and any lyric adaptions are made in mind to better enhance the message of what the writer is seeking to get across. Music is one of the few mediums where musical sense takes precedence over poetic delivery.
