I specialise in pop, country, and folk lyrics. This means the lyrics are tailored to your genre.
If you've previously released music, I listen to this to ensure the lyrics suit your sound and style.
I retain 100% copyright of the lyric (50% if we collaborate on the lyrics) and ask for 20% copyright of the song (music and lyrics combined.) This is open to negotiation, particularly if several writers are involved, but I do not work-for-hire in the traditional sense.
"Justine's lyrics inspired me to write a song quicker than I have done for years. She is professional, helpful and a hard worker who takes what she does very seriously. Her writing has a depth that can only come from a place of compassion and sensitivity. I am very pleased to have worked with her."
~ Mike Lisle Dunn, Songwriter & Composer
"Justine is a great lyricist, as well as a lovely person to work with! Her lyrics exactly matched the ideas we had for a song beforehand, and she delivered them exactly when she promised she would. I can certainly recommend working with her!"
~ Ghislaine Regout, Songwriter & Composer
"English is not my native language. Justine provides lyrics matching both the music and the story you have in mind. If I'm in the need for some great words? I definitely choose Justine!"
~ Koen Haspeslagh, Songwriter & Composer
"I discovered Justine through Google and I was immediately attracted by the clarity of her site, and the kindness and delicacy that emanates from it. That's why I contacted her to create an English version of my French lyric.
The different exchanges we had by email and video conference really helped me to make the always delicate passage from one culture to another. Justine is not stingy with her time and energy to facilitate communication and mutual understanding. She has a good mastery of the language and a lot of ideas.
The result is excellent and I will contact Justine again in the future for similar work. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to do serious and inspired work."
~ Alain Amouyal, Composer
"Justine Perry has a voice, which speaks from the heart with lyrics that express the intimacy of the song. Having only a taste of Ms. Perry’s work, it’s something I will be returning to."
~ Wayne Jr Ridenhour, Songwriter
"It was great to work with Justine. She delivered exactly what our project needed."
~ Marcus Januszko, Music Producer
"I was stuck with lyrics on a song, and Justine's input was really helpful. Highly recommended!"
