“I love our family’s song! you perfectly captured what I wanted to express to my spouse. You are incredibly talented and I am fortunate to have you in my life!” - Megan Kahn, Hamden, CT

Megan wanted a song to deeply thank her husband, Yusuf, for standing by her with ultimate patience and helpfulness through the past couple of years of her illness and surgeries. Their family of 3 lives in Connecticut, and Yusuf has always wanted a house on Block Island, and they were planning a trip to the Grand Canyon to celebrate Megan’s recovery. I worked references to those into the song, using the lighthouse as the main metaphor for their marriage and family love. For their video I used dozens of photos and short videos, all from Megan’s Facebook page, that perfectly capture the essence of her story of recovery, the joy of their marriage, and the warmth of their family love.

"I think everyone can relate on some level to the enormity of committing to a longterm relationship. This song addresses the fear and the joy of falling in love. Robin always surprises me with the depth of her imagination on these custom songs." - Allen

This is a song I wrote for my husband, years ago, and recently recorded as part of my upcoming album. I tried to capture that mystical feeling of falling in love, how it's amazing that two people find each other and make a life together, and how I was always trying to write him songs but never could find the words to express my love. The bridge (instrumental middle part) is an excerpt from an instrumental song I wrote him when we first met, called ”Island Bound.” The last verse is about my hesitation to commit and get married, but then being overcome by my love for him.

“This was the greatest gift anyone's ever given to me. It made me cry, especially on the eve of my little lioness’s 9th birthday. I love it so much. Thank you for sharing your talent with my family.” - Wendy Phillips, Denver

The Phillips Phamily requested a song about lions, which is their family mascot. I crafted a song that captured both the beating heart and lions of Africa, where Wendy has done missionary work, and the spirit of Ireland, her family’s heritage land. The lyrics used lion metaphors to tell the story of each member of the family, including their 22-year-old cat, Cajun. The video includes over 120 photos taken by the family - including Wendy’s photos from her Africa safari and her million-dollar dental marketing business - strategically placed for maximum impact, giving extra insight to the adventure stories behind the song lyrics.

“My heart is overflowing with love and gratitude after watching what you created️️! I’m so excited to be able to share this with her. I think the most incredible part about this song is that even though it’s about my sister, I personally connected to every beautiful lyric.Truly blessed!” - Becky Signurnjak, Jacksonville

Becky wanted a song to surprise her sister, Celena, on her 40th birthday. She was concerned that Celena felt like she had successfully raised a family but wasn’t sure where life would take her next. She wanted to express her humor, love and admiration for her sister and encourage her to spread her wings and not be afraid to try something new. Celena lives in Florida and loves the ocean. I also recorded a performance video of the song that was played at Celena's birthday party.

"Thank you so much for writing this song for me. I love it!!" - Celena Sigurnjak Ramos
