  • Would you say it's imperative for artists to hire a song writer?

    Hi Imogen, as a singer and songwriter yourself, would you say it's imperative for amateur artists to hire a songwriter?

    You don't normally 'hire' a songwriter... they would just receive publishing (royalties) from any recording that was made and that's how they'd get their money :) Helps the music world go around this way. Almost like, investing in an artist. I wonder maybe there are people who would take a fee but wouldn't be the norm.

    Why don't you write some? I think singing songs you've written would be more fulfilling than singing someone else's memories, fears or hopes, no?
