Lyric-Writers Can Co-Write Songs with Music
Producers and Earn Songwriting Royalties
Co-writing songs is a great way
for lyric-writers to team up with
music writers and earn
songwriting royalties.  Writing
good lyrics with hit potential is a
unique talent, and when that talent
is combined with the skill of a
music writer, a potential hit song
is created. Thats why the music
industry has always revolved
around
lyricists and song-
writers
.  

But
writing lyrics, especially good
lyrics, is more difficult than most
people think.  That’s why lyricists
are so highly-valued in the music
industry, and why some
song-
writers
specialize in writing
lyrics
.
Not all songwriters are good lyricists,
which is why many recording artists
and music producers bring in lyricists
to write the lyrics for some of their
songs. Writing good lyrics is a rare
talent in today's
songwriting market,
but it's absolutely essential if you want
to
earn money writing songs.

So how do lyricists turn their song lyrics
into complete songs?  One of the more
common ways is co-writing.
Co-writing
a song is when a musician brings in a
lyricist to
write lyrics for their music, or
when a lyricist brings in a musician or a
music producer to create and record a
song.
When you co-write a song and the
song is
published, the co-writers
generally share the
songwriting
royalties
50-50.
