Have you ever wished you could write a song to express your feelings about a loved one, but didn't quite have the musical chops to do it? Raggedy Edge wants to help!
A custom song written for a loved one, whether a family member or a friend, is a wonderful gift for any occasion, such as:
Any Special Event
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We send a questionnaire to you. In the first section, your answers tell us general things like:
- who the song is for
- the occasion being celebrated
- the mood or emotion you’d like the song to have
- your preferred genre and tempo
The next section enables us to write a ‘person-specific’ song. We’ll ask about:
- how you met
- favorite memories
- funny stories
- kids, pets, hobbies
WHAT’S NEXT? WE TAKE IT FROM HERE!
From the information that you’ve provided, we write a song tailored to the person and occasion. This is our stock in trade! We love creating this one-of-a-kind and very special gift.
Fees for custom songs start at only $599 ~ WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
We’ll write and record a demo version, then review it with you to determine whether there is content that you’d like to change or add. If needed, we’ll write and record a demo of the revised version.
Once we have your stamp of approval, we’ll do a basic studio recording in a singer-songwriter style with vocal and guitar, ukulele, or mandolin. We’ll put the recording onto a CD or thumb drive for you to have or give, as well as sending you a digital download.
You'll also get a copy of handwritten lyrics and a PDF of the lyrics suitable for framing.
WHAT IF I WANT ANOTHER REVISION?
If you decide you need another revision after the final approval has been given, up to three small lyric changes can be done for an additional $50 fee. Additional recordings of additional revisions are $50.
Payments can be made through PayPal or Venmo.
I highly recommend working with Raggedy Edge if you are looking for a unique way to express your ideas and feelings in song. They work hard to make sure you are happy with the result. And what a pleasure to create with them! The experience was quite intimate (in a good way). Lynn and Bob are very trustworthy and encouraging. After several iterations we ended up with a wonderful love song for my wife.
To say it was well received (by my wife and our friends) at her birthday party would be an understatement! Bob and Lynn even made a wonderful video of the performance. They did a great job helping me express my feelings in a wonderful song.
