Violet Pen is a lyricist who writes introspective and relatable verse about relationships - with others and with yourself. Collaborating with other songwriters on the music, Violet Pen’s song lyrics read like pages from a journal, painting vivid images, expressing deep vulnerability and conveying the complexity of life situations in simple, honest ways. In her lyrics, Violet Pen draws from her colorful and complicated life, filled with multiple careers and loves, moves from Atlanta to San Francisco to Alaska, single motherhood, family trauma and growing up in a small southern town on 11 acres of cow pasture. The musical style of her songs span pop, folk and country.

Hi Christy, I love the voice and yes the song.....I too could go on about the submission game here at BJ...The competition is stiff. that only makes us better, so between "no members selected" and the listings which state "vocals and instrumentals"....Thats a sucker listing. they never select an instrumental. hey, I got off on a tangent for a minute!.. I'll get to the point... do you ever collaborate? Thanks Marvin. SKY HIGH MUSIC LABS...

Hi Marvin, thanks for reaching out and totally relate. :) I haven't collaborated before, but am very open to it. What do your collaborations usually look like? Ever collaborated with a lyricist? - Christy

Hi,
I just wanted to tell you how much I was moved by your song Just A Memory. We both put songs in for the same opportunity and sometimes when I'm not successful (99.9% of the time!) I listen to those that were selected and considered, just to get a feel for what was required, that's how I came across your song. It's really beautiful, I wish you every success with it.
I couldn't see any credits, is that your vocal? Whoever it is adds so much to the emotions already in the lyrics?

Good luck and thanks,

Bob

Hi Bob, I'm sorry for the delay in responding. Thank you so much for taking the time to share you feelings about my song. I wish I could take credit for singing it but I don't have a voice. I hired a vocalist who sings on many of my songs. She brings such feeling to the words. I wish you the best of luck on your own music. You never know who is going to hear it and be moved or feel like it's the perfect song for an opportunity. :) Thanks again, Bob. - Christy

Thank you, Nan! It makes me happy to hear that. I just checked out a couple of your songs and I love the the fire and attitude I felt when listening. You are a talented songwriter.
