Songwriters of Your Song


Your words, your thoughts and feelings. Captured within a gift, A Gift of Harmony. Unique lyrics, unique melody, unique song, your song. Professionally recorded in a studio, delivered on CD with copies of the original score. You also receive the original drafts of your poem as this is used as the original inspiration for your song.    Truly, a 'once-in-a-lifetime' gift, a gift that inspires the heart and touches the soul.

A song can get inside of you. One line can say it all. Especially if it's your song.


What A Life It Is (Female vocals)

Sung by Leslie Wright


A Gift of Harmony is the ultimate romantic gift and perfect for proposals, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine's, Christmas and other occasions.


Just imagine for one moment, what would you say in your song?


That's where we can help. By working together, we can make your song a reality.



How it Works:


Poetry has often been used as the inspiration for many great songs. Simon and Garfunkel,

The Beatles, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Carly Simon (to name but a few), have all used poetry as the inspiration for many of their greatest hits.


(Actually, there's a list here of songs inspired by various literary works).


We have 'borrowed' that successful formula. 


Full time poet, Allen Jesson and professional singer songwriter, Leslie Wright, have combined their creative talents to offer this unique service,

just for you (and your song).


Your song, your words, your melody, guaranteed

to be uniquely written and recorded. All you need

to do is tell us what you would like to say

and we will do the rest.

Maybe you'd like to say "I love you," "I miss you," "thank you" or "I'm sorry"?


Or do you have another important message that you'd like to send?


You are involved in every step of the creation process so you will have plenty of opportunity for input. The good news is that you do not need any special musical or literary talent to participate. You can even share in the royalties, should

you choose to have your song commercially released.



The Top 10 Countdown To Your Song:



1. Simply tell us why and who you want your song written for.

You do that by completing the form here:





2. After you have placed your refundable deposit, Allen Jesson will then

complete the first draft of your poem within 48 hours. The poem, later presented

in a boxed, hand-made gift card, is normally a gift on its own, but with

A Gift of Harmony, there's a lot more to come...


You will receive your first draft via e-mail


3. You will probably want a line or two changed. We keep redrafting until you are totally happy with the outcome. You have unlimited redrafts.


4. The final draft is then passed onto Leslie for the musical composition. It should be noted that only part of the poem may eventually end up in the lyrics.


5. Within 7 days Leslie will send to you, via e-mail, a selected mp3 clip (usually the chorus) of your song.  If you have not paid the full balance, you will be asked to

send your final payment at this point.


6. Once the balance has been received, Leslie will send you the full version mp3 of your song, including the lyrics, via email for your approval.


7. Once you have received the mp3, it is at this stage where the final decisions

are made with regard to the song. Do you like the melody? The chorus?

The lyrics? The harmony? Is this your song?


8. After making any requested changes and gaining your final approval,

the studio time is booked and your song will go into full production.

Finally, the finishing touches are then added (mixing, mastering, etc.).
