Tired of Giving Your Loved Ones the Same Old Chain-Mart Gifts … Hoping the Gift Says What’s in Your Heart?
Give an Artisan Custom Song to Immortalize Your Feelings Towards Your Loved One
Do you have special people in your life who you just can’t find the perfect gift?
Either they have everything they could possibly need … Or when they do have a need, they buy it themselves.
Finally, after racking your brain, the perfect gift pops in your mind’s eye.
You can’t wait to see the look on their face over this one …
Then, they open someone else’s gift, and it’s the very same gift you bought.
Worse, yours is the next one to be opened … with all eyes anxious to see what you bought.
It’s a little embarrassing.
And then there’s the awkward moment explaining you’ll dig through the trash for the receipt so they can return your gift for common cash.
I’ve got your solution. An Artisan Custom Song.
They’re not about to buy themselves an Artisan Custom Song. And, I’ll personally guarantee no one else will embarrass you by getting them one either.
Because, they won’t find it on Amazon or EBAY. In fact, no chain-mart or even mom-n-pop store will carry this special gift …
Artisan Custom Songs, are only found right here.
Do you have a special story, event, or pet phrase you share with someone? Why not put it in a song for them to enjoy whenever they want?
Tell them about a baby on the way. Pop the big question in a song.
Maybe you aren’t an open book with your feelings, or have trouble getting the right words out, but still want to tell a loved one how you feel.
Maybe, you just want a cool artistic way to say, “I love you!”
Why not do it with an Artisan Custom Song?
I can guarantee you’ll be both the hit and envy of the party. They might get several gifts for their special day, but they’ll be telling others about the amazingly thoughtful, unique gift you gave them.
Give an Artisan Custom Song for …
- Father’s Day
- Mother’s Day
- Grandparent’s Day
- Valentine’s Day
- Veteran’s Day
- Secretary’s day
- Bosses Day
- Open house event
- Employee of the Month
- Or just to say “I love you!” Right out of the blue.
I’ve even popped the question for a screenwriter. Here’s what Bill said …
“I searched on the web for a singer/song writer for a wedding proposal. What I got was a collaborator and person who really got the essence of what I wanted to convey.
The end result was something beyond my expectations. Brad put everything together in a matter of days. Extremely happy with the results and yes my fiancé cried with joy.”
–Bill Bergman, Pennsylvania
Of course, it means nothing unless the future bride gives her approval, right?
“Words cannot express how overjoyed and honored I was to have my very own song written about me with my name in it. You captured the very essence of our relationship and put it to melody!
This will forever be our song and I am so grateful that talented people like you are out there to help seal our love in a song. Thank you from the bottom of my heart … it was spectacular!”
–Reina “Bergman”, Pennsylvania
The Artisan Custom Song Difference
It’s easy to fall for those websites out there with canned music disguised as a true custom written song service. And I suppose for some they’re okay.
Problem is, they’re modeled after one of those $2 cards off the rack that are full of cliché lines.
You know what I’m talking about. You can spend an hour trying to find the right card that actually says something meaning full.
If you can identify with that, you are an Artisan Custom Song kind of person.
With the help of a professional performing songwriter, put some of your own words, sentiments, or pet phrases in a precious musical gift your loved one has never received ever before in their entire life.
Your Artisan Custom Song will never have karaoke style canned-style music. You get originally performed music and melodies, straight off the frets of a Martin HD-28 acoustic guitar. All based on the personality of your loved one.
When one person is doing the writing, playing, and singing you get a synergy you just won’t get with a paint-by-numbers art.
It is the difference between the lively authenticity of an impromto speaker compared to someone preoccupied with a scripted teleprompter.
It’s just not the same thing.
And that’s the Artisan Song difference.
Now, if you don’t care about giving a real custom song, and feel one of those patched-in karaoke style songs are just … well … good enough. Then, no hard feelings my friend, I wish you well.
But, if you’re looking for something intimately special you’ll probably never give them again. This is your opportunity.
You’ll get a working songwriter who writes, performs, and sings your loved one’s song based on an interview or survey chalked full of your memories, experiences, or pet phrases shared between you and your loved one.
Each song is crafted uniquely to your individual specifications and memories.
As a professional songwriter, I’ve long since learned clichés and overused phrases evoke zero emotion. That’s why you won’t find lyrics like …
“I’d like to pay you back
For all the things you do
Here’s just a little song
To say I love you”
See? I can write clichés if I want, but they’re a bit of a turn off for me.
I’d rather write things like…
“His golden crown is an old seed cap
T-shirt and jeans is where his royal robe is at
His scepter is … a garden hoe
He’ll tend to his court, and work it row by row
When he’s through with all the weedin’
He’ll wink at her and start his teasin’” –Excerpt from King of Her Heart
When you get an Artisan Song from me, I actually sit down with your notes just as if it were one of my own.
It earns the same heartfelt creative attention in my writing process as one I’ve written to perform at my live gigs.
There’s no canned karaoke track for someone to sing to and call it custom or genuine.
I physically bring it to a studio and record it straight off the frets.
If you’re looking for a tasty comparison between an Artisan Custom Song and some of the canned music models out there … it’s the difference between an expert chocolatiers making your wedding truffles compared to tossing a few Hershey Kisses at the place setting … hoping nobody notices the difference.
Is an Artisan Custom Song it for you?
Only you can decide whether the heart and soul behind your sentiment is worth putting into an artisan Custom Song.
It’s the difference between buying a wedding dress off the rack, walking towards the alter with a fit that’s … “come what may” …
Compared to getting a perfectly fitting tailored dress for the special day
So how do I get an Artisan Custom Song written?
I’ve made it SUPER EASY.
- Initial Contact. Call or email me with any questions about the process or what you’ll get. I don’t expect you to just click a button and order. I want you to feel comfortable with your decision and get to know me a little as well.
- Secure Your Spot. Once we’ve communicated and you agree an Artisan Song is a great fit, you can secure your spot on my schedule with a deposit.
I require a deposit because you are buying my craft, skill, and time. Once I start work on it I’m emotionally and artistically invested into your project.
But don’t worry about the remaining balance. You’ll have opportunity to take care of that prior to receiving your song.
- The Interview. Once your deposit is received, the real fun begins. There is a series of questions you will want to answer.
Tell me as much as you can about what you want to say. Give some background information for perspective. Include any key details you want mentioned and I’ll do the rest.
We can either chat over the phone for 30-minutes or so, or you can answer them through email. If we chat on the phone, I will record the conversation for reference and quality assurance sake. I don’t want to miss any important detail that should wind up in your Artisan Custom Song.
- The Crafting Begins. Once we have the basic material, I’ll decide on some title choices based on your information. Or, if you have a phrase or word you want for the title, we can run with it.
I’ll find the main key points to include, and which details I can embed in the lyric.
I won’t be doing a chintzy fill in the blank type lyric either. It is 100% original based on your input.
There are several song forms or structures I’ll choose from. Not all song content fits just any song format. That’s another benefit I hadn’t mentioned yet when you get an Artisan Custom Song. Just because verse-chorus type songs are popular on radio for sing-alongs and dance clubbers, they don’t always make the best heart-felt customized song.
I’ll periodically keep you up-to-date through the writing process. You may even find an additional question or two from me in your email or a text message.
- Lyric Review. You will get a preview of the song lyric sent to you in case there are any needed revisions. Due to the artistic nature, I do include one lyric revision prior going to the studio.
- Composition and Melody. I’ll compose guitar and vocal melody based on the crafted lyric. I will use one of the several acoustic style genre formats listed which we’ve discussed to create your song. Once I’ve gotten the song in rough form, we can then get it in the studio.
- Studio Recording. I’ll bring it to a working studio which I hire out to finish your Artisan Song. The recording engineer takes the controls and I can concentrate on playing and performing your song. The tracks will then be mixed and processed.
- Download and Shipped. Once we’re done at the studio and the song is finished, I’ll send you a download link and ship out your CD upon receipt of the remaining fee balance. At this time, you can decide if you’d like a framed copy of the lyric as well for a visual momento suitable for hanging. Framed lyric is available for an additional $15 plus $7.95 shipping in the lower 48 states within the USA.
And that’s it. The only thing left is to watch the smile or tear of joy rolling down your loved one’s face when they listen to what you have to say in a song.
Just like Betsy Burnam did out in Minnesota …
Brad, you and your songwriting are amazing. When I asked you to write a song that I could give to my husband as a Christmas present, and sent you pages upon pages of “stuff” about my husband, our relationship and life together that I thought might be useful in writing the lyrics, you picked up on the 4 or 5 key, most personal points in all that chatter …
I thank you so much for your insight, skill, intuition, and of course talent. I’m just thrilled with “King of Her Heart.” The gift of song is so special – and your gift has let me give a most special one to the most important person in my life”
If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering how much it will cost to surprise my sweetie, dad, employee, or friend with an Artisan Custom song.
Before I pleasantly surprise you, I want to make sure you know all you’re getting.
Professionally Written and Produced Song
You will get a professionally written song by me, Brad. I’ve been writing songs for over two decades. I’ve got years and years of experience putting life experiences into songs and performing them in front of live audiences. I’ve had my songs aired on public and even major country radio, internet radio, military radio … as well covered by my fellow songwriters out in the nightlife.
In fact, international performing songwriter and songwriting instructor Jill Holly says…
“Brad Dunse and his music are like fresh baked bread, touching so many senses at once and one slice is truly not enough. His storytelling is simple and complex all at the same time… finding a place in one’s heart and head… never one dimensional.”
Your special customized song will also be recorded in a fully professional studio with a seasoned veteran recording engineer at the controls.
For the basic gift track you’ll receive a guitar-vocal recording chalked full of all the facts and key points you detailed in your questionnaire survey. Each line will be carefully crafted to bring the most meaning and emotion behind what you want to say.
You will be kept up-to-date on each stage as it is written. You may find an additional question or two from me in your text messages or inbox, as the writing process advances.
You will also get a preliminary copy of the lyrics for any final revisions before I bring your song to the recording studio.
And when we’re ready to record, I’ll email you with an update, so you know it’s near completion and soon to be available.
CD and Download
Your song will be professionally burned to CD as well made available instantly as a download.
I’ll provide you with a special download to a cloud based storage where your song can be downloaded as many times as you wish from any computer for 30-days from release.
I’ll also ship you a copy of your custom song in a jewel case protected, professionally produced CD for a lasting physical copy.
Framed Lyrics with Co-write Credits
For a slight additional fee, I’ll print your lyrics on quality paper and set it in a frame for a suitable wall hanging. Your gift will live in the hearts of your loved one every day they pass it in the hallway, or are reminded of your love and thoughtfulness hanging on the living room wall.
You’ll even see your name printed in lyric co-writer credits.
How long will it take to get my song?
It depends on my schedule. Booking your slot in as much advance as possible increases making your deadline. I do have some liberties to shuffle writing slots as needed, but allowing at least three weeks is reasonable. I often can get it done sooner, but these are songs artistically and individually crafted, consider it an artisan art, not a bulk production.
Your song is carefully studied and considered as it is crafted from literally, thin air.
What type of song genres do you write?
I write in the styles of …
- Acoustic folk
- Acoustic blues
All acoustic guitar-vocal tracks are very suitable and appreciated by most any audience … young and elderly alike.
I consider the age of the receiver when crafting lyrics and writing the music composition.
Summing It Up
So you’ll get …
- A professionally crafted lyric featuring your loved one as you’ve detailed in the questionnaire.
- Skilled guitar music and composition expertly crafted and performed with your loved one as focal point.

Now, for a special service like this, you might expect to pay up to $500. And truthfully, it would be every bit worth the work and skill which goes into your song.
But you won’t pay anything close to that.
Even $300 would be a bargain for a professionally produced and written song for your loved one. After all, it isn’t every day they’ll get a gift so precious to them.
