We approach our songwriting service as a collaboration with our clients and customize that experience based on your or your group’s wants and needs. There are too many variables to list them all here, but just know that our goal is to have every final recording be something you love and stand behind as strongly as if it were yours alone.
This is accomplished by including you in the total process — and this is where Bandog becomes a great partner. We just now are making available to clients our catalogue of more than 600 songs and backing tracks. Because we want you to bring these across the finish line, we intentionally have left room for you to do your magic.
Our sessions are set up for you to add your personal touches and truly own the songs we place with you. Below are some basic notes on the most common band components.
Questions? Just contact us, and we will be happy to discuss your specific situation.
- Songs of all styles with no vocal melody or lyrics. You collaborate with us to complete the writing process.
- Songs with partial melodic or lyrical ideas. Although Bandog provides the starting point, you help achieve the final product.
- Songs with complete melodic and lyrical ideas. These are totally ready for you. Just put down your beautiful voice and walk out of the studio with a world-class single.
Admittedly, we are guitar freaks here at Bandog, and we have our process for creating some really cool material. That said, there is always room for adding guitar layers or replacing some parts with your own playing. That way, you get the personalized sound you want.
As with the other instruments, we can separate out your part and replace or layer your performance with the rest of the tracks. This way you get the full, live bass sound that defines your style.
Key parts are tricky due to the complexity of some digital patches. We can work with you and your gear to get a close match, or show you how to set up your rig to reproduce our patches in live performance. Also, in most cases, we can provide sheet music.
We try to use live drummers when we can, and we try to make synthetic drums sound as genuine as possible, but nothing beats the real thing. Budget, time, and access to a good studio become the biggest challenges to recording you drum parts. However, we have plenty of ways to get the drums sounding just like you want.
At Bandog, we are songwriters and musicians. We have played in bands and collaborated on songwriting projects with hundreds of tunes and dozens of artists. We believe that the most important part of the process is having all artists walk away with a finished musical product that is inspiring to the artist and will be exciting for the fans.
The art starts from within us, but it’s you and your fans who complete the process. It is their support that allows us to continue working on the craft we love.
