Let's create a Concept Album Together


Support, guidance, and feedback on your songwriting so that all the songs on your album contribute to one powerful story.

Is that you?

  • You want to write a concept album, but you don’t know how you can pull it off — so you haven’t started. You wrote down some notes. Maybe you even have an idea or a basic story outline. But you don’t know what to do with it.

  • You're unsure which direction to take on your new album. You want to try something new. But you can't come up with concept album ideas or do not know how each song can support that story in its unique different way.

  • You’re suffering from self-doubt wondering things like: Am I even good enough to write a concept album? Do I have what it takes to tell one single story over multiple songs? What if I just can't do it? 

  • You've done your studies, read books and blog posts, went to seminars and talked to other musicians, but you still do not know if your story is any good. Truth be told, this dream to write a concept album just feels overwhelming to you.

Writing a Concept Album - Telling Stories in Songs

It doesn't need to be that hard. Just imagine ...

  • Having a clear and comprehensive understanding of what kind of story you'll be telling on your album so that you know exactly the different stages of your story that you can include in your songs.

  • Choosing the songs as single releases that express the most significant moments of the story told on your concept album.

  • Feeling confident and inspired when you write instead of overwhelmed, confused, and full of doubt.

  • Having a personal guide to brainstorm ideas with, troubleshoot problems, and to keep you on track. Who inspires and guides you to find the story that is just waiting to be told.

A Story Coach helps you find the story you want to tell, master the fundamental principles and essential storytelling skills, and provides you with the exact steps you can take to know exactly how you can make every song contribute powerfully to your album's story.

What's Included?

Frequently Asked Questions

  We're not interested to do a concept album just yet. Can we still hire you for creating an album together?

For sure! Even if you don't want to write a concept album, there are plenty of opportunities for how you can tell little snippets of stories in your songs that support the global theme of your album. Just reach out to me via email or book a FREE 45-minute strategy call with me to talk about your project and how I can be of help!

  What qualifies you to evaluate stories?

I am a Story Grid Certified Editor. That means I was personally trained by Shawn Coyne. He is an editor with over 30+ years of experience in editing manuscripts, and he has worked in the "Big 5" publishing houses. He created the Story Grid methodology that helps storytellers evaluate the structure of a story, identify the strengths and weaknesses, and give the writer the next steps to improve their story.

Being a Story Grid Certified Editor I am able to evaluate:
  • how stories work and what it takes to tell a story in a song that your listeners can resonate with

  • how to help you improve the stories told on your albums, no matter if you have a rough idea, songs drafted or released

  • how to give constructive and valuable feedback

 

If you want to learn more about The Story Grid methodology, visit the Story Grid website here.

  How do I send you the songs for the analysis?

I focus on the lyrics of the songs and not on the implementation of the music. So it's totally fine if you send me the lyrics in a Word-Document or in a PDF via email.

  We're unsure which direction to take on our new album. Can you help us?

Absolutely! Let's have a call and talk about what is keeping you from getting started. Book a FREE strategy call with me and we'll talk about your current work in progress, about previous releases and how I can help! 

  We've only written a couple of songs, but would like some feedback before we continue. Can you check them out?

Yes, I can! I offer every songwriter a FREE analysis of one of their songs. This will provide you with a better understanding of storytelling in songwriting so that you'll know what you're already doing well and where you can focus on improving.

You can also work with me on an album together. We can brainstorm central ideas and concepts, talk about the stories for each song and write the lyrics that will engage your listeners in what you want to express in your songs.

  We can't send out demo tapes, but can you check our songs anyway?

Yes, absolutely. You don't have to have the music ready in order to apply for the analysis of your songs. I focus only on the lyrics and not on the melody or the musical implementation. So send me the lyrics of the songs in a Word-Document or in a PDF.

  Do you work as a topliner as well?

No, I do not work as a topliner. I focus on consulting, coaching and writing songs together because I believe that everyone has a story to tell. And I want to support you to be able to tell what you need to express in your songs. So I'd love to work WITH you to tell truly powerful stories in your songs.

  I've seen you're from Germany. Do you analyse German Songs as well?

Yes, I do. Na klar! I'm a German native speaker and I'd love to work with you! Just reach out to me via email or book a FREE 45-minute strategy call with me to get to know each other.

  What if we have another question that's not answered here?

No worries! Just send me an email with your question or book a FREE 45-minute strategy call with me to talk about your songs, your goals, and how I can help!
