Steve, regarding your first message  I totally agree. I love writing songs but really don't enjoy recording them as I don't feel I have the voice/skill level for it. If there was away where the songs I write could be recorded/used by someone else I would be very interested. 

I released my 1st album last year and I was intending on getting someone in to sing and front it however after looking into it I couldn't find anyone suitable so ended up doing singing it myself. :(

We have just been going through this term's season of Primary School Assemblies. I was delighted with the enthusiasm with which kids of that age sing together. Many of the schools in our area use the Sing Out series by James Wright. This series is designed - by people who really know their ages and stages - deliberately for the "up to 11" age range to enjoy and crucially join in, which they do with obvious relish. And yet, the style of these songs is different from that which many of us use with the same age groupings in a church or church-group context. Should we all be more aware of the difference between 'enjoy this being played loudly to you' and 'here is something you'll enjoy singing together'? Are we aware enough of what is actually enjoyed at different ages? Do we expect the musical development of our kids to jump from pre-school stuff to full-blown guitar band 'pop' style, and are we missing something by doing so? Are the kids missing something because of what we are giving them, or have primary schools got it wrong?

Hi Steve and all - I agree - sounds like a great plan to me - lets go for it and find someone to help

There are a lot of us on this site. Is anyone else rather restricted by the finance needed to make a studio album? What do you do about it? Having had a few chats, there are a few of us who write songs who would love to have access someone with a producers ear to take the basic and suggest ways of tweaking/crafting it to make it better. Somehow it's easier to do it with somebody else's song, but it's not easy seeing the wood for the trees with your own. Is it just me?
