Songwriting is more than just writing lyrics!

20130207-104724.jpg

Its actually writing a SONG! A song that has a hot melodic structure, strong content, movement, consistency in verse quality, smooth transitions, marketability, a strong catchy hook, a unique concept that reaches the market in which you are trying to reach, vocal production, vocal arrangements, conviction and feeling, and last but not least, growth.

After you finish with the song, it should have the ability to stand the test of time.

This is what songwriting is. Songwriting is what makes the song complete. As a creator in lyrics, you have to take in account all these areas that I have listed above. One feature of it is just as important as the next feature. They are all needed in order to come to the product finale of a stellar hit marketable song that can be placed in a variety of multi-media.

Songwriting is not easy for those who think it is. When you take into account the characteristics, its very tedious. It is imperative to be a student and stay on top of hot topics, melodic structures, dynamics and animation within a song. Music is constantly changing, you must know how to change with it.

Writing songs is in my DNA. I understand what it takes to put together a great song, a hit song. I have a formula, but my formula may not be the same as yours. It is something that one must find as you focus in on your craft.

Its so important for people to understand what songwriting really is. I’m writing this to open up the minds of writers that its way bigger than what you may see on the surface. You are putting together a film, a scene and in that film and scene, you have to see the whole picture not just one aspect of it.

Paint the masterpiece of your song. Fill in the darker darks and the lighter lights. Let the audience know where the light source is coming from and where the shadows will hit. Choose your medium well, your target market. accomplish the goals of every stroke to gear towards that market while maintaining the identity and personality of the subject matter. The concept and you as its host, must be one. I know you can hear it. break down and build to inherit its proximity (the art term). It is a beautiful thing!

My Tag & Signature, “LeXXah Drew It”

20121217-151052.jpg

Because I did it.
I Drew it.
Did you know that a canvas can be anything. A canvas can be the ground, the air, a stool, a computer screen, a sheet of paper, a piece of wood, a stellar music track, the mic, a wall, you get the point.

I draw on these canvases all the time.

My Mother & my Father taught me at a young age that anytime I do something, a task, an assignment, a project or whatever it may be, that when I’m finished, people should view my work as the best, high quality, distinguished, astronomical and prestigious, why? Because my name is on it. My signature is on that project and on the track. People will know the worth and value of my work and when they ask who did it? The word on the street will be…

LeXXah Drew It!

I take pride in anything and everything I do. I want people to know what I do and what I did. I want people to say, “Man, that song was all that, it gave me goosebumps or that song is HOT! I want to hear more of her, where can I go to check her out!”

I want people to say, “Man, that art piece was off the chain who did it?”

LeXXah Drew It!

“Man, that blog was beautiful and so was that poem, who wrote that?”

LeXXah Drew It!

You should think of my tag and signature not so much as a first and last name, but moreso as a phrase because really that’s what it is.

Even without the “It” at the end, “LeXXah Drew” is still a phrase. The cool thing about it is I use a whole lot of capital letters. What can I say, I love breaking the rules, breaking the norms and being different.

Attention to detail is huge for me. It’s something that separates the professionals from the amateurs. Even with something little as a phrase.

I am a Multi Artist at a very high level. And when people hear me, see me, hear my work, see my work, read my writings, my blogs, watch my videos etc. all will know LeXXah Drew It!

Yea, my phrase is past tense, but that just means I’m working on yet another stellar joint, record, drawing. I’m about that life, all studio flows. Didn’t you get the memo, there’s not just one studio flow, but many.

This is my tag and this is my signature. Like it or not,

Just because you make a Beat, doesn’t mean you’re a Producer!

I’m addressing an issue.

Some people may find this truth to be disturbing, because for so long, beat makers are seriously convinced that because they make a beat, they are producers.

For those who don’t know, This is not true!

If you make a beat, meaning, you loop the same patterns for about 3 to 4 minutes in both verses and hooks, you are a beat maker and that’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.

I don’t say this to be mean or to downplay what a beat maker does, but I recommend that you research the title, “PRODUCER” for yourself and you can ask any big time successful producer in the industry. And I’m talking about thorough research, not just Wikipedia or the dictionary.

This is a serious misunderstanding among the masses and those who are trying to make it with their music.

A producer makes and puts together a SONG, meaning, getting the right engineer with the right songwriter or songwriters with the right programmer with the right artist or artists to create a stellar hit and/or a marketable song.

It doesn’t just stop there. We haven’t even included the live instrumentation. The song is still missing some key pieces, so the producer calls in a cold bass player to put down the bass, he calls in the right guitar player to lay down the guitar riffs. He calls up a drummer to give the drums in the song the movement it was missing. The right background vocalists need to mesh better behind the artist or rapper on the track. So, the producer gets the right background vocalists.

This is a Producer! Yes, this is a Producer! Did you know that a Producer doesn’t even have to know how to make a beat or a music track. He or she does not have to know how. What makes you a producer is your ability to create a song, putting the right pieces together to make that stellar song and that is a Producer.

Yea, that’s extensive isn’t it, when you compare a Producer to a Beat maker or even a programmer. There’s a huge difference. And I’m not just making this stuff up. Its the real deal.

I know somebody may be mad right now, but their are a lot of beat makers reading this and getting a rude awakening. But, it needs to be said and needs to be clarified. I have been around many beat makers who don’t really know what it means to be a producer. Well, I wanted to learn about it and share this knowledge with those who may not know. And this is good for artists and rappers to know as well. Educating yourself when it comes to music is very important. Knowing the real terminology and the business is quite significant to your success.

Earlier this year, I went to the IMC, the International Music Conference, brushing shoulders with Big time cats and listening to what they were saying on the panels with upcoming producers/beatmakers and programmers. Chuck Harmony, Kendrick Dean and Drumma Boy broke it down best. Guys who have proven themselves at a high level in the music industry.

I wish so many cats claiming the producer title could of been at the IMC to hear this. It was valuable information for all to hear. So, if you didn’t know, now you know. No more playing like you don’t. It had to be said, it had to be done.

“I’m Worth EVERY Penny!” Believe ME, I AM!!

20121107-094659.jpg

I don’t push myself as an artist. Being an artist may be a desire down the road, but my main focus is songwriting, laying down reference vocals, vocal production & vocal arranging.

Many people think its odd for me not to push myself as an artist, but I do have valid reasons. On my music page, I do advertise myself and what I do, but it’s more of promoting the songwriting and vocal skills.

If you didn’t know, I am the face of my songwriting team. So there is the explanation.

Which brings me to the the point of the title. Those who have heard me already know and those who haven’t, perhaps this read will spark interest.

IM WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! And I mean that in the sense of the Real Talk & NOT the Fake Talk.

I don’t like to go on and on about how cold I am because I let my skills do the talking for me. Most people won’t dare say or put themselves with the likes of some big time artists around the music league, and I won’t say I’m up there with them as far as resume and finances, but I can say that vocally, I can rock with Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Monica, Brandy, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks etc.

I can dish out the vocals of these different artists. And I’m not being over confident or getting to big for my britches. I’m quite aware of what I’m saying.

Now it’s not enough just to say it. Let me show you. Hit up my Reverbnation Page at Reverbnation

Yes, that is me singing!

Artists and rappers have asked me to sing hooks or do Adlibs and as any quality service does, I do charge a small fee that won’t break the bank on anyone.

I understand where I’m at, but I also understand where my skill set is and it is of very high quality.

People talk big all the time, I know, but out of all the thousands or millions you run into, I’m that one that actually isn’t full of crap.

As you read my blogs and just get to know me as a talented person, you will see that I’m a doer, an action person. People have to see it to believe it. We all know that, but don’t listen to me. Listen for yourself and you tell me.

And you don’t have to hate, I’m not pushing myself as an artist, but offering a service. The artist things Is more of if a project comes around, like a feature or something of that nature, it’s temporary or a short term venture. But no matter what it is, I’m Worth Every Penny! And I’m not going to break the bank, not like the artists with the bigger names.

This thing is all about letting people know, this is how I eat, how I live, how I continue to do what I do. As a creative being, I gotta survive. Many purchase many products from clothes, electronics, gadgets and so forth and a lot of times people will break themselves just to get those things, but don’t see the value of someone’s artistry.

It’s disappointing, but it is the truth. But I’m setting my bar and sticking with it. A skill can not be devalued. That is why I continue to prove myself. You have to, so people can be reminded on just how cold I am at a very reasonable price.

That is all!
