Peter Kelly, Southern X Songwriting - Lyricist

I retired 4 years ago to just relax and kick back. I didn't expect to be writing lyrics and beginning a new chapter in my life.

I was sitting at Pete Mac's bar, with my mate Bev, enjoying a cleansing ale and a Rodney Carrington song (One More Beer) played on Spotify. I immediately had a 'light bulb moment' and thought I might be able to write a song.

Three months later and I'd written 65 songs across a number of genre such as country, blues, Christian, pop, EDM, heavy metal and patriotic Americana. This then inspired Southern X Songwriting as a conduit to get my songs to music publishers.

My lyrics reflect the fun, irrelevancies and challenges of life. I draw on my experiences and travels to write lyrics that are meaningful with market appeal.
