Lyricists know their field, in the same way session musicians know their instruments. Hiring a lyricist lessens your workload, and betters your song.

I'm Justine Perry. I've worked as a lyricist since graduating from university in 2013, after studying BA (Hons) Music Composition. 


Why choose me?


  • I've studied the craft of lyric writing inside out. Using storytelling, structure, rhythm, and rhyme, I create memorable and moving lyrics for your songs.


  • I specialise in pop, country and folk music. Your lyrics will be relevant and tailor-made to your genre. 


  • Lyric writing is my niche. I'm not a 'jack of all trades'. Because of this, your lyrics will be powerful and compelling. 


"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!"

Most of my collaborations are done online. Here's how it works:

  • We discuss the lyric(s) and your requirements in detail. I can write a lyric for you to set to music, or put lyrics to your backing track.


  • I listen to your existing music, as well as any reference tracks (songs by other artists that reflect what you're looking for.) This ensures the lyric meets your expectations, and suits your individual style.


  • I send you a first draft within 7-10 days. Following your feedback, editing is done immediately. A maximum of four edits is standard, but I can extend this if needed. Edits are free of charge. (The only time this wouldn't be the case is if a client were erractic with feedback, for example approving a draft, then wanting something drastically different.)  


  • When the lyric is complete, I send you a contract. This states that you own copyright of the music, and I own copyright of the lyric. This can easily be signed online. 


Am I the lyricist for you? Read examples of my work and decide. 


"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."
