Have you ever wrote an amazing song, and thought to yourself, “This song would be perfect with great lyrics and vocals.” Well, collaborating with a lyricist is a great way to get some vocals into your song.
The first reason to collaborate with a lyricist is the logical one, it saves time. You could spend hours trying to piece out lyrics for to your song, or you can bring someone in who has the talent to fit lyrics to your song to make it shine.
Have you ever heard the saying, “two heads are better than one.” Simple statement, but it holds so much merit in the music industry world. The second reason to collaborate with a lyricist is to generate more ideas. Bringing in someone who is just as passionate about lyrics as you are with your music, can open up an entire new mindset to creating music. The more ideas that are created the better the music becomes. Without music writer and lyricist combinations the world would never have experienced classics like, Your Song (Elton John/Bernie Taupin), We Built This City (Starship), and Straight Outta Compton (N.W.A).
The third reason to collaborate with a lyricist is gaining self-awareness. Yes I know what you might be thinking. “that is a little out there,” but there is nothing better than working with someone to see what you actually bring to the table. It’s challenging to articulate what you want, and this challenge will only make your song even better. If you made the first step into looking into collaborating you at least understand that you have weaknesses, but you believe these weaknesses can be taken away with the help of someone else.
Whether you’re a rock god, or just starting to song write, and you’re not the best with words it’s always great to get a helping hand from someone who just wants to make your music great.
