This is a familiar refrain for a would-be songwriter and for experienced songwriters: help me write a song!

Hey, if Elton John needed help with lyrics, anyone can use a little help from time to time. Consider that some of the greatest Beatle songs of all-time were collaborations between John Lennon and Paul McCartney.  So admitting that you need a little help on that song you are writing is no big deal. In fact, it is quite normal.

And one of the best songwriters/collaborators/music producer in the Nashville music scene is Kip Allen.  Call Kip at 817-995-8093 and tell him what you are working on.  The solution to finishing that song is only a phone call away.

How does a songwriter collaboration work?

Really, this is all about the old adage that two minds are better than one, and that additional help during the creative process can oftentimes prove invaluable.  Hiring a songwriter can help in all facets of songwriting.  You will go over chord progressions together.  You will focus on solidifying sections and structure together.  You will work on developing a vocal melody for your song. And you will work on writing lyrics and adopting them to the melody of your song.

Does such a collaboration always work? No!  But a large majority of collaborations do work, a majority so large that it would be silly to ignore it as a possible solution.

Let’s set aside the fact

One of the hardest obstacles to hiring a songwriter to help you write a song is not, surprisingly, the cost of the hiring, but in giving up some control over your song.  We understand that. We understand that writing a song is a very personal matter.  There are any number of songwriters, some very successful, who absolutely refuse to get help with one of their songs, the key words being “one of THEIR songs.”  And we get it!  Your song is your baby.  You have carried it in your mind since infancy.  It’s hard to let someone else help you to raise that baby into an adult.

But sometimes it is necessary, and a good songwriter collaborator, or a good music producer, can definitely help you.

Is it worth the money to pay someone to help with your song?

We cannot answer this question for you. Only you can answer it, and that’s just the real of the situation.  We can tell you that songwriters like Kip Allen, Drum Workshop Artist, are worth the money it takes to hire him, but there are times when finances dictate a less-than-perfect solution to a problem.  It may well be you simply cannot afford to hire songwriting help, in which case you might want to consider one of the many online songwriting tools available.  We don’t highly recommend them, but we do understand that sometimes you simply have to go with second-best for a solution.
