Want to Gift Someone a Personalized Song for Valentine's Day? Downwrite Has You Covered
If you've ever wanted to gift someone their very own song, but don't have any singing or songwriting talents of your own, that's where they come in. The platform matches users with talented songwriters to create truly unique pieces of music based on your suggestions and preferences. Curious? Here's what you need to know about them.
How Does It Work?
With Downwrite, you can commission an original custom song for a loved one. You start by picking the occasion—in this case, Valentine's Day, but you can also have songs written for business purposes, proposals, consolation or anything else—plus a music genre and a price range to get matched with the right artist for you.
From there, your suggestions feed the song, from the tone you want on the track to the names and details you want included, and the artist crafts their original song from there. Whether you want it to be an epic ballad, a funny TikTok sound or an energetic workout track to remind them of you, it's all up to you. You are the co-creator of the song, along with the artist. With more than 150 writers to choose from, you're sure to find one who can bring the song you want to create to life.
Downwrite has an impressive roster of songwriters available. Maybe you'll want to splurge to get a song written by Nine Inch Nails touring guitarist Richard Patrick, or Grammy winner Asdru Sierra of Ozomatli. Other artists include rapper Mickey Avalon, Justin Warfield of She Wants Revenge and Grammy-nominated R&B singer Shontelle.
How Much Does It Cost?
How much your Downwrite track will cost depends entirely on how much you're willing to spend. Some artists have short, simple compositions starting at $150, while others have their fully orchestrated custom songs on offer for up to $6000.
What Do You Get?
At the end of the process, you get a song made to your unique likes and specifications. Not only do you get a download of the song for your personal use and sharing with the recipient, but you also get 5% of any royalties that might be earned from the track.
