My Background / Experience
I'm a flexible, creative, & reliable lyricist and songwriter. I’ve been writing songs since middle school, and I have a certificate in Lyric Writing from Berklee School of Music Online. I'm a verified artist on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms. Between my personal music and my freelance work, I’ve written hundreds of songs. I love helping other artists bring their ideas to life. :)

What I'll Need From You
Send an email to StegnerMia[at]gmail.com, with the following information:
1) A little bit about you and your project
2) Which service you're interested in
3) Your budget
4) Your timeline or ideal deadline
5) Anything else you want me to know!
Please also attach any relevant files.
What type of songs will you work on? Past examples include commercial releases, theme songs, songs for musical short films, and informal birthday gifts for loved ones. I have experience writing for a variety of genres/styles.
Does melody writing include vocals? I'll provide demo/scratch vocals as needed, but not isolated tracks.
What quality level of recordings can you provide? I record at home, with a Shure MV51 microphone. I typically record in a Logic or Garageband project file, and deliver .wav files.
How long will it take? My average turnaround time is 10 days.
Do you get royalties? I don't require royalty splits, but appreciate it when possible. I expect to receive songwriting credit in most cases, but please do not credit me as a main artist on any tracks without my explicit agreement.
