How about a few links that are handy for songwriters? There are about a million lyric sites that are reasonably good out there. These are links of more general interest.

Perry Rose
Perry Rose


  • Perry Rose. A great singer and an equally great melody writer. Perry is an Irishman living in Brussels, whose family’s roots have circus folk on both sides. Site in English and French.
  • Marka. Once a roadie in a band I sang in! Since then, he has become a regular fixture on the French live scene and chalked up a hit or two – notably the naughty “Accouplé“. We worked together more recently on a track for his album “Made in Liège”.
  • James Peach Kevin Osborne is a British writer, producer and remixer (check his mash-ups) with whom I’ve done some writing.
  • CB Milton/Clarence Milton Bekker. We had a few hits with him in the 90s, notably “It’s a Loving Thing”, and he later went on to great things later with the “Playing for Change” project.

Download and share music

  • eMusic. 1 million tracks (25 free on sign-up) and very good recommendations. Lots of good indie music.
  • 7Digital. Great UK site that offers fast downloads of recent material in MP3, i-Pod or WM formats. Recommended.

Writer and lyricist stuff

  • A-Lyric Goodies. Fancy a US stamp with rappers? Or funky lyricist messenger bags? Start here for gifts and other items.
  • MusicRoom. The UK’s foremost site for music books and assorted goodies. Ships free to Europe for larger orders.

  • Wobbly Music. Services for mature artists & music lovers. “We record older artists & unite them with mature listeners”.
  • Cannes or Bust! Midem, MIPCOM, MIPTV and the Cannes Film Festival: inside news and tips about the music and film worlds from Cannes.
