Scotty Pages

Acoustic song-writer

Scotty Pages on SoundBetter

I will write you an original song on acoustic guitar or provide lyrics and melody over any instrumental.

Writing poetry has been my passion for close to 20 years, and putting words to music has been my calling for close to 10. Over the years I have been blessed to write lyrics for some amazing artists, such as One Direction, Hey Violet, and Laza Morgan. I am versatile and collaborative, with a long history of writing different styles of songs with artists of almost ever genera. I can deliver original lyrics, as well as craft songs on my acoustic guitar for any occasion. I will deliver the lyrics, melody and arrangement of the song, but it will be up to you to take it from there. I am a pure song-writer, not a session musician. For most of my own tunes I hire someone on Soundbetter for professional recordings. Examples can be heard in the samples.

I retain 50% of all rights to publishing.

I do not crank out multiple songs per day, but ask that I be given the time necessary to craft my art accordingly. That being said, I will waste no time getting to work on your project and I will be present throughout the entire process until you are happy :)
