(Loop TT) You can’t go wrong when you write your own lyrics.
A major advocate of this method in the music industry in the Caribbean is Ian ‘Bunji Garlin’ Alvarez.
The Trinidadian lyricist was in Barbados yesterday and spoke to Loop News on the sidelines of the 1Love Concert press launch held at Zen Restaurant, Crane Resort in St. Philip.
Bunji said:“I am always an advocate for no songwriter should write for an artiste. That’s me!”
However, he said he understood that some artistes may need to seek the services of a songwriter. When this alternative path is chosen, Bunji said that issues can arise unfortunately, hence why he cautions persons to put their own pen to paper.
