Ngggh! I would *love* to take a swing at a Christmas one - religious or secular, straight or playful - they are always an interesting challenge. I've only done a couple before. But I'm happy to take what I'm given in truth. No hurry!

@brisk

So glad you got a kick out of London Town - doing music for other people's words is such a pleasure - and it really helps me to treat them as "sacred texts" (as much as possible, I messed with these a bit) so that I impose a limitation on myself, when I have the power to mess with the words too I have too many options and the whole process takes longer... and I'm often less keen on the end result. Anyway, thanks very much! Do give me some more if you've got the urge!

[avatar]

And I enjoy creating songs from other perspectives! Rarely do I write a love song...it's uplifting for me! Thanks so much!

[avatar]

Thanks for thinking of me. It's a good one, my friend, yours always are, but that one's not for me. Perhaps one day you'll light that fire. I'm keeping my eyes open, don't you worry! :)

[avatar]

Hi David, thanks for your comments and contact. Would love to collaborate and connect to talk about the TV/film industry

[avatar]

No problemI love that I started a challenge. :) We need more!

[avatar]

hope it came out ok, sorry i can't sing for S###

[avatar]

Ya they’ll work just haven’t had time to record much in a few days but it’s next on my list

@brisk

Thanks for the comment on Take Me Alive - shows how inspiration is fickle, as I'd been intending to work on the one I said I would today... and then I picked up my guitar this morning, and totally went off the point...

[avatar]

I was thinking of doing a song and just singing "this is a short song" and ending it there!

[avatar]

Yeah sure absolutely. I usually dm via Insta.... but if not on there hit me with other ways you may know. Do people do email?

[avatar]

Thanks for the comment on Emperor.

[avatar]

Thanks very much for your slew of very kind comments :)
I stopped adding musicians on FaceBook but happy to follow on Insta @soundcanvasuk 👍🏻

[avatar]

Sure I’ll be down for a song

[avatar]
@mctown

someone asked me about my short responses... I try to listen, to write, and to touch base with people on email more... I do appreciate those of you that respond so well to songs...and keep the train rolling.

Thank you!

@brisk

Just an update on This Box I'm In - I've got somewhere with it, at the expense of going to bed at a reasonable hour. No cutters have been used, just to see what would happen if I took your words as gospel. I have had SUCH FUN. It is quite demented. I'm stuck on the verse unfortunately, but perhaps tomorrow will have the answers. Goodnight!

[avatar]

Thanks for the thoughtful lyrics, David! This was a fun one for me :)

[avatar]
@brisk

Woah, these are awesome, thanks a lot. I just realised I'm backlogging a bit, but I'll just tinker on everything as it takes my fancy and get things done when they're finished.

[avatar]

Thank you David for your kind comment on my collaboration with Kate. It is always amazing to hear Kate's work. I'm looking forward to your lyrics and collaborations.

@mctown

Cool. D

I worked out a rough demo last night:) Will send you my progress this week! Hope you're feeling better.

@brisk

Hello, hope all is well. I've been listening back to "Drivin'" from last year a bit, and I think it was probably one of my more successful musical attempts, not least because of your great lyrics. If you've got anything hanging around that you want to send my way I'd be thrilled, but obviously no pressure!

[avatar]

Received! Be in touch soon...

[avatar]

Hi David! I read your message last night and was thinking about it. This morning, during my commute, I heard Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" and thought I'd share that! I love Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen's authenticity. I admire David Bowie's creativity. :)

[avatar]

I’d like that Dave! Let me know if you have anything specific in mind. Otherwise, I’ll keep my eyes open on the lyrics you post!

[avatar]

Hey, David, thanks for stopping by! Looking forward to your awesome lyrics.

[avatar]

Hi David! Happy 50/90!

@mctown

Cool.

Hey David. My #crazylife has calmed down a bit. I'm going to try to finish the lyrics you sent months ago! I'm in it!
