Why I Write Music

First and foremost, I love country music!

I prefer the piano over guitar and although I own 4 pianos and keyboards, I don't play them as well as I should. I'm currently taking piano lessons for songwriters with a real pro. My experiences lend me the inspiration for writing "down home" country music lyrics  and I can hear the melody in my head as I write.  I write the kind of music that I love to hear! Every song must tell a story - I like ones that make you feel good in the end! 


Ideas jotted on scrap paper often transition into music

I like to take a theme and develop it into a story that hopefully becomes a musical masterpiece that people will enjoy and remember.


I will be driving and see something so simple and jot down a possible title. When I get to the studio, I typically write a song in 60 minutes.  Of course, I always have to rewrite when I see it from an outsider's point of view! 


Sometimes when I hear a new song, it gives me the inspiration to ....

Music reminds me of the night

Nighttime brings good vibes and represents a time when people enjoy life.  I like to think of it as the time of day when music soothes your soul.


There's nothing like listening to classic country music - I mean, slow country music - in the evening hours with one you love!


If I could listen to a "feel good" Country ballad any time of day, I would enjoy it to the fullest!

Looking for Music Partners

If you can put melody to my lyrics....

We could make beautiful music together!


Right now, I'm sitting on 31 songs ready to be put to melody!


I am currently co-writing with Dan McGowan and Ken Medema who are both extremely talented.


I am also looking for talent to record demos for my music.  Send me an email if you've got a great Country music voice to nelson@WordstoMusic.us 

I can write but don't play any instrument as well as I could ....

Well, that's why I'm reaching out to you!
