Say it in a Song...
From your heartfelt feelings and memories to your company's mission or organization's message, a customized song is a memorable and unique way to connect to loved ones or larger audiences on an emotional level. Give your custom song as a gift or use it for live events, videos, tele-seminars, webinars, and more!
Here's How It Works :
1) Laura Marie will personally consult with you to determine the unique content, feel, and essence of your song.
2) Next, Laura Marie will compose the melody of the song and write the lyrics in rough draft form. You will then be contacted to listen to the song and review the lyrics over email. Any revisions will be made and, upon your approval, Laura Marie will take the next big step.
3) Your song (either an acoustic or full band arrangement) is recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered in the recording studio.
4) You'll be sent an MP3 version of the song along with the master CD and the song lyrics. An exclusive music industry custom song plaque with engraved lyrics and CD to look just like a "platinum album" tribute to you can be added at this point as well!
5) If you want to make this EVEN MORE personal, you can have Laura Marie sing and unveil your song LIVE at your event in front of your audience! (subject to availability)
6) Your audience falls in love with the song and your custom message runs on repeat in their heads and hearts!
We want you to be excited about the possibility of having your very own song. In fact, it's MORE THAN a song, it's an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
Laura Marie takes a VERY limited number of clients per year, so plan ahead and reserve your order well in advance. Should you have any questions or simply want to get started, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Custom Song" in the subject line.

"Laura Marie is an incredibly talented musical storyteller and so very easy to work with. I was recently tasked with selecting the live music act for a VIP event and thankfully our city has so many wonderful musicians to choose from, but what sets Laura Marie apart is her ability to effortlessly create a classy and chill coffeehouse vibe in a corporate setting. Her combination of originals and covers provided a relaxed and comfortable underscore for an evening of mix and mingling while also offering an opportunity for those that want to sing along. I look forward to many events working together! " – Nikki Young, Edutainment Director, Morgan’s Wonderland Inclusion Foundation
