Made-To-Order Personalized Song

Searching for a powerful way to express how you feel? You could dedicate a Top 40 hit on your local station. But writing a tune? Now that's something special. Let musician David Morgan transform your stories into a one-of-a-kind personalized song. By answering some questions and sharing several anecdotes, the singer/songwriter composes original lyrics and music that matches the occasion and highlights the recipient, all performed in their favorite musical style. The more info you provide (at least 15 details for one-minute compositions and a minimum of 25 specifics for three-minute masterpieces), the more personalized the finished product will be. David then shares a draft of the song's words for you to edit or approve before he sings a single note. After revising and recording, David delivers the custom-made one-minute or three-minute track (MP3 audio file) and its lyrics (PDF document) for you to share and cherish forever. Both song lengths are moving and memorable, but we recommend the three-minute version when you have more to say. Make life's moments and milestones unforgettable by creating someone's new favorite song. Written and recorded in Connecticut.

Custom Song Wall Art

What makes a song your favorite song? Did you hear it together at a concert? Was it playing on your first date? Or is it the one you can't help but dance to even after all these years? Whatever it is (no judgments), it gets you both every time. Artist Claudia Moldovan transforms that catchy melody into a one-of-a-kind work of art by cutting wooden pieces in the exact shape of its soundwave. Select a recording of any song, then choose either a snippet (up to 10 seconds), the chorus (about a minute), or an entire song (up to 3.5 minutes), and Claudia will translate your submission into a sweeping, elegant wall sculpture that's an instant conversation starter and an anniversary gift you'll never forget. While the artwork doesn't actually play music, Claudia does include a card that indicates what tune (and section) her stunning creation represents. Made in Latham, New York.
