Hi! I'm Layerson :-)
on: April 20, 2018, 08:41:35
Nice to meet so many songwriters  :)

I'm a self taught musician and songwriter from Sweden. I've been writing songs on and off since 1994. My main focus is in writing songs and recording them, I have no ambitions of becoming an performing music artist, right now I'm content in just producing.

I will try to post some songs for reviews and I'll also try to help others with their ongoing creative struggle and effort by also leaving reviews.

Only 6 minutes part of the club and a reply already.
The funny thing is, that other disciplines (painting, sculpting, you name it) never seem to have to tell others why their creative force is a creative force. And may the force be with you forever.

For the best part of my life, I've written songs just for the f*ck of it. And as long as I like doing that, I fully intend to go on doing so.
Late in the autumn of my life, I joined this forum, hence I have to teach myself writing in English, where Dutch (amsterdam) was the going thing.

This is a very forgiving forum, as in: They see through many of the mistakes each one of us makes along the way.
I say: Welcome. And I hope you'll feel at home here.

I look forward to getting to hear some of your songs.
Welcome!!!
Kind regards, Gus

Hey @Layerson ....Welcome to The Kitchen. I see from your intro that you are going to fit in quite well. This is an amazing place to hang out and share your songs in a safe and constructive family atmosphere.

I'm looking forward to hearing some of your music. Pull up a kitchen chair and make yourself right at home.

Hi Gus and Leonard!

Thanks for giving me such a warm welcome  :)

I want to thank you both for the positive reviews of the demo that Stan posted - "Friends I Count On" earlier this week.

(It's thanks to Stan that I've found this place in the first place, and I feel the positive reviews for the song belong mostly to him, mainly because he writes such great lyrics which makes for transitioning them into music such a breeze.)

Regards
/Mikael

ahhh.....thanks for making that connection @Layerson ...I had missed it. That is an excellent tune. You took Stan's lyrics in a perfect direction. The instrumentation and vocal performance was just right.

Stan @smajor  definitely is a top notch lyricist.

What about you? Do you also write lyrics for your music?

Thanks again for all the welcomes :) @smajor, @Zedd, @Mar T.  :D

In an aptempt to answer your question Gus, I'm sorry for whats going to be a somewhat lengthy respons, about if I write lyrics: Yes and no.

In the past I've tried to, and since last year I've taken it up again from time to time, but I find that it is harder for me and kind of takes to much out of my creative time, especially since I don't want to write in my native language, albeit that would be so much easier.

On occasion I have come up with lyrics and I've written some but I'm my own worst critisist, so many go straight into the trash.

However, when the words rise out of some musical idea or part of a song when I'm working with it, those lyrics most often "stay" and become a part of the song for me, perhaps even more important than other instruments.

I have a few old songs that I would want to put here up for review, but I still need to find time to record them and give them the time they deserve.

I'm trying to dispense my time evenly between work, my social life and the collaborations I take on with other music creators or lyricist, but I hope that I'll have the time for that soon.

In the meantime I may put some of my song ideas that lack lyrics for collaborations. Maybe someone like them and want to write something for them.

Again, sorry for the lengthy response, I totally suck at giving short answers.  ::)

Thanks @Layerson for your answer.
This is what I personally like very much about ‘me’: it give you/me a glance at the way other Kitcheners work and think.

I wasn’t aware that a collab had already been posted. I think you’ll easily find your own corner in the Kitchen.
Glad you came.
Kind regards, Gus

Hi @Dutchbeat @MrBouzouki @Bill from November Sound
and thanks, this community is very warm and welcoming:)

Hej @Jambrains, trevligt att det även finns några svensktalande här i köket. Gillar dina samarbeten och ditt gitarrspel, har lyssnat på några och de är genomgående väldigt bra :) (I’ll keep to english from here on...)
