Michael Reys Songwriting Showcase
BMI Country Singer/Songwriter Michael Rey Wants To Work With You
About – Michael Rey
I’m Michael Rey -Country Songwriter. I am originally from Hanna Wyoming. I have been listening to, & playing Country Music my entire life.I am a US Army Veteran, Entrepreneur, Proud Father & Country Music Songwriter. I have listened to all genre’s of music, but I always fall back to my roots. Country Music.
I have no doubt that somewhere inside of my music is a dash of every song (no matter the genre) I have ever listened to in my life. I hope this gives my songs I write (that just enough different) an edge over trying to chase or keep up with popular trends in Country music. I have done that in the past, and it can become rather hectic. I feel much more comfortable writing the way I write, and producing my songs the way I see fit. I hope this way of thinking is not a risk, but rather an advantage.
Since I’m “Mainly” a Songwriter, I do sing some of my songs, more than a singer. I can probably get away with a little more creative space than the Artist would. Industry professionals or a Singer/Artist (self contained artist) will have to comply with stricter unwritten guide lines when they are trying to get a break into the music field. They must maintain a consistent style of music for an album & such. Since I am a Songwriter, I use this extra flexibility to cover a lot of different areas within Country music today. For example, if I write song that feels a little Pop, Rock, Blues, R&B etc. I have reliable Producers I hire to demo & maintain the feel of that particular song. Or they have the creative space to pull it back into particular Country style they hear. More times than not, the song gets recorded in the best possible way, so that the song has its best chance of getting recorded by a Major or Independent artist, or TV, Movies, & Film.
I don’t write for any particular Country style or type. I don’t write for trends that are out there. Even if I did, by the time my song was cut & hit the Artist’s camp. The trend would more than likely have passed. Leaving me with a great dated song. I can’t afford to do that.
I’m a Country Songwriter who is passionate about every song I write. My motto is, it’s all 150% about the song from conception to completion. When my song is the absolute best I can make it, I would hope that you have been taken on a 3-4 minute journey of emotions, feelings, pictures, & story line, so when you have finished listening to my song you say. "I can hear Blake or Keith singing it." When I write a song it is not geared for a particular Major or Independent Artist. It’s written in a way that everyone can relate to it. I want you to say, “Oh I like that song, it doesn’t sound like anyone else.” That’s my payday!
Here’s a very good example or how my Country Music varies on extreme to the other because I’m not tied down to a paticular style or trend. “Frame by Frame” & “Do those THINGS!” are recorded in Nashville Tennessee by two completely different Producers that helped me archive each songs full potential in to very different way. Listen to them both.
“Frame by Frame” when you listen to it, has a real solid “Traditional Country” feel. Where as “Do those THINGS!” has a total “Rockabilly” Pop type feel. Another song I wrote called “Easy” has what I call a Country Soul feel, If that field indeed does exist. Lastly, a song I wrote called “One Drop” has a great Americana feel type feel to it. Hopefully introducing you to my songs helps you to understand that yes, I am a Country Music Songwriter. I use the best studio musicians Nashville Tennessee can offer. Many have played for Major Artists such as Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean. So for me to be able to get my songs into the hands of Major & Indie artists is my dream. You can help by purchasing them by “Clicking” on my album on the right of the page. Help me give my songs the best chance of getting into the hands of the Great Major & Up and Coming Indie Artist of today.
Once again, I’m Michael Rey and I write each of my songs in many styles for Major & Independent Artists. These various artists may come across my songs through a “Pitch” from you, Twitter, Google+, Youtube, my Publisher, or any one of the many Social Media platforms I use.
