"Songwriting"

This page is dedicated to All the great songwriters!

For many years I have been writing songs. I have sent some off to Music Publisher, Record Companies, and even singers I thought would like them,
but no, they have always been returned, and I am still waiting for my first sucsess.
Over about 40 years, I have written many songs, on my own, and in collaboration with others.
Then, about five years ago, my good friend Gerard Kenny had sucsess with a musical he wrote with Drey Shepperd.

So I decided to take a different direction. I joined a major local company, The South Downe Musical Society, to find out more about the subject,
and began thinking about writing a musical, myself. Now five years on, with age taking it's toll, I have left the Musical Society.

In the last year I have completed my first musical, with the story and lyrics supplied by Bryan Hodgkins.
It is the story of the life of a forgotten Portsmouth hero, John Pounds. Back in the early 1800's he had a bootmaker's shop in Olde Portsmouth,
and took in the street urchins, fed them, taught them and cared for them.
As for the musical, "Pounds of Love" we are looking for any company who will take a gamble on it. Is that you?

I recently re-joined Writers at Lovedean.
We write stories of all kinds, very ably organised
by Charlotte Comley, and it's great fun.
