Choosing the Right Elements for Your Custom Song

Crafting a custom song is an art. Ponder on the lyrics that echo your shared moments and emotions. What milestones define your bond? Convey these to the artist, and they’ll sculpt a lyrical tale of your love.


Choose a genre—be it a touching ballad, lively pop, or mellow jazz—that mirrors your duo’s essence. Work closely with the artist to ensure the tune and instruments align with your unique flair.


If you have a handful of songs that you like the sound of, it’s super useful to share these to give our songwriters an idea of the vibe you’re looking for.
