Melissa Gilstrap

"Melissa Gilstrap wears many hats when it comes to music. Composer, lyricist, record producer, vocalist, you can list them all. What amazes me is that she excels at each one. I have had the good fortune to collaborate with Melissa in writing songs that appear on my two latest CDs as well as on recordings by other artists. The lyrics she created for these songs are astonishing in their originality, with subject matter that is far from ordinary. She has recently contributed her talents to a recording project with the late, great guitarist, composer, Tom Giacabetti. Melissa acted as producer of this CD as well as lyricist, vocalist and even as guitarist on one of her original instrumental compositions

AmandaStevenson

Started writing songs in 1970's when I joined the Songwriters Guild of America. Devoted 20 years to writing my musical. In 1996 switched to writing all kinds of popular music from smooth jazz to light rock, cabaret, and holiday songs. I consider myself to be a very commercial lyricist following traditional methods of songwriting. I have never written any song less than 100 times. I am very dedicated to writing a good lyric first.
