I've been composing songs in my head and writing the lyrics since I was 7 years old (and that's a long, long time ago!!) and I've had the privilege of linking-up, over the years, with talented musicians and vocalists around the world, who have helped to bring my ideas to life. Having exhausted my savings on 'pitching', I am now developing a new strategy of releasing some of the songs on my own label (Hilton Music UK) - no great expectations, but there is always the possibility (however remote) that something might 'take off' one day, or perhaps attract interest for licensing or cover versions. I'm registered with the Irish P.R.O. (IMRO) and I have also recently signed up with Songtrust, for publishing admin.
The challenge - and joy - of creativity.
