Hello everybody,

I'm a french songwriter and also instrumental music composer. I'm now over fifty. I've been composing music since the age of 12. But I've lived another professional life: I've been an engineer, worked as a teacher at universities, and so on. All the while, I continued writing songs for my family and friends.
Then, one day, my daughter asked me to record for her a CD with my songs.
Oddly, I did not seem so easy. I began questionning myself: which songs should I choose, I've written more thant 200 ! Should I record songs played at the guitar, or at the piano? Should I rewrite them, add bridges, refrains, gimmicks, improve the texts, compose orchestration?
Suddenly I realized that I had an enormous work in front of me : working on each ancient song, while still creating new ones, learning how to use music softwares, so as to orchestrate them, learning how to publish them, how to use social medias, how to find musicians to play along with me my songs in concert...
So when I left my last job one year ago, I took a very big decision : I had to dedicate the rest of my conscious and healthy life to writing, recording, publishing my music. 
I'm not immodest, but I know that I have a real talent and that I am capable to give musical pleasure to many people. I have not too much time in front of me to reach the goal that my daughter unintentionally gave me : publish around 200 or more beautiful songs, texts and melodies.
But the outside world requires some practical issues to be solved, such as: how to make ends meet...
This is why I'm here on patreon. You, fans and future fans, could pay a monthly amount for the content I will be sharing with you.
I will present each song. First of all, songs will be recorded simply: voice, guitar, piano. One or two versions. You could be asked to vote to choose the version. In a second time, I will explain my choices of orchestration, let you hear the project before mastering, and finally, you’ll be given the song with its final mixing with a good quality recording level.
Now it depends on you, patrons and public.
I will be deeply grateful to each and all of you to help me make the dream come true.
Thanks.
