A songwriting buddy of mine is getting hitched in January.
After the nuptial…
After she swipes cake all over his face…
After the reception band has packed up and gone home…
There’s a good chance they’ll go to their honeymoon suite, slip into something nothing. Look into each other’s eyes, and hear me singing in their heads.
Because my buddy asked me to co-write/record a special song for their wedding.
How cool is that?
No pressure at all, right?
‘tis okay. I’ve written wedding types before. One dude hired me to write a pop the question song. She flipped over it too.
Anyway. Point is. I was super honored my buddy asked me to write it with him.
I hadn’t seen him in a few years actually.
Still, after the many, many songwriters he knows, my name kept popping up in his head as the one to write it with him.
And we only co-wrote one song together, ever.
Getting hitched, having a special song for this life event… that don’t come without some confidence to get the job done.
Here’s what he said after just a rough verse chorus sample…
“WOW!!!! We love it! Awesome job Brad … and so fast! I love the little guitar intro and you nailed both the verse and chorus with the feel I was looking for. … Such a great start. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your willingness to do this. We’re thrilled – having the song will help make the day even more memorable for us! In my book, John Legend has got nothing’ on you, man!!!”
There is only one reason, and one reason alone I mention the above. I certainly don’t need to slap my own back.
The point is, it’s a co-write, and there is a reason he asked me for it.
