Custom Songs By Ernie HalterHave you ever wanted to give the perfect gift to someone that has everything? A custom song is your answer! Nashville based national touring and recording artist Ernie Halter has written hundreds of songs, heard on radio, television, and feature films. He can write, and record a master-quality demo of a song written especially for you. The arrangements can be anything from full band to intimate solo acoustic. It's all up to you! The process begins with a phone call or Skype session with Ernie, as he will ask you questions about the person the song is for as well as get a feel for what kind of song style would fit best (ballad, mid-tempo, acoustic, electric, etc). The end product is a hand written CD jacket, with hand-written lyrics, as well as an mp3 version delivered to you via email. Questions? Ernie will be happy to answer them: email@example.com.

Q. How long does it take?
A. Typically I devote about 12-16 hours between a couple of days. This includes writing, recording, and mixing the final product. Depending on how busy my schedule is, turn-around times could be as quick as a few days, to a few weeks. If you're thinking about commissioning a custom song, don't wait till the last minute. Contact me today to set it up to insure there's enough time.
Q. What if I don't like the song you write?
4) Though I can't 100% guarantee you'll like the song I write, so far I've had 100% positive "beyond my expectations"-type feedback! Before I write a single note or word, I will interview / ask you some questions via email. I'll want to know about you, who you're giving the song to, about what kind of music you and they listen to. I'll outline what kind of song I think would work and only after having a clear vision of a direction, I'll sit down to write. That's why the writing usually happens quickly after I've gathered the back story. The more information I get, the more personal the song can be. I can also send you a quick iPhone recording before I sit down to track the whole arrangement, send you a lyric and you can have final say on anything that might not feel right to you. I wouldn't be able to, say completely change or re-write something from the ground up, but changing a few lyrics or feel of the tune (tempo, groove) wouldn't be a problem. I take a lot of pride in what I do and want you to be happy with the final song : ]
Q. What does the finished product sound like? Do you have any samples?
The finished product is your custom song with a full rich backing arrangement, usually with drums, bass, piano, vocals, harmonies. Whatever is appropriate to the feel of the song. It's a master quality recording to the professional level of what you'd hear on a commercial CD or on the radio. If you'd like to hear some samples, email firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you a few!
