Have you ever noticed the way people sparkle when they talk about someone they love? We love that sparkle, and we love turning it into song. It’s been an enormous honor to be able to translate the nuanced and personal ways people love one another into custom songs - so far, we’ve written them for birthdays, holidays, weddings, anniversaries, births, and in memoriam. Most everyone is moved to tears when they first hear a song written directly to them, and we take those tears as a sign of a job well done.

How it Works

  • We do an extensive interview with you-- getting a feel for who it's for, what style of song would most move them, and then  harvest all the poetic details of your story.
  •  Then we retreat to our studio and write, workshop, record, mix, and master a professionally-produced song straight from your heart to theirs. 

What People Are Saying

I knew it would be a challenge to make my sister feel loved and special while in quarantine and across the country. Making a custom song for her was the most magical special gift. Everything about the song is beautiful, in its silliness and tenderness. The song is so catchy and so Dana and it helped make her feel so loved and supported. We'll cherish it forever.”

— Carey

I cannot stop crying. This song is so tender and beautiful, personal and true. After several listens (besides the cadence of language which I LOVE) is how perfect the tempo is. Having swayed with many a baby, this is the exact rhythm to move in when you are trying to soothe an infant. ”

A Few Examples...

Kaba

This is a song written for a newborn (nicknamed "Kaba"). The family went through lots of struggle leading up to the labor, and this song was a gift from the child's Auntie--meant to celebrate the victory of a new life.

Lucky Me

This song was written from a daughter to her two parents, to thank them for a lifetime worth of wisdom. They are big church-goers, and so she wanted it in the style of a "worship band." (Notice the line about California Pizza Kitchen--one of their family traditions!)

One of our first custom songs is called Come Home to Me-- the prompt was to write a song that "overflows with mother nature's love and smiles all the way through..."
