Hello and Howdy

So hello and howdy one and all. My name is
Paul Norman Tapp. I like to put my middle
name in the mix because Norman was my
dad’s name and I was always proud to be
my father’s son. Any way please call me Paul
or even Tapp but ‘for God’s sake’ never ever call
me Mr.

I am Sixty-five years old and have been writing
lyric as an extreme hobby for many a moon now.
With hindsight I would have to say the first couple
hundred or so lyric I wrote were with the occasional
rare exception well kindly put they were dogs. But after the first dozen years of putting pen to paper I began to build a pretty decent catalog of lyric some of them are still waiting for music- and that my friends is the reason I am here.

My website is songmantapp.com Please feel free to check
it out. At the site you will find rock, country and folk tunes that I have cowritten over the past five decades. I hope I can live long enough to write a song when I am 100 because I do enjoy life and the supreme gift of song.

I hope to hear from those of you who are composers that enjoy working with a lyricist because as I said- I have a healthy catalog of songs waiting for music. We can work whatever way you like. We can find you a lyric from one of my notebooks or you can let me hear that song that you could never find the right words for and I would be more than happy to take my best shot at telling a story to your tune.

I am partial to enthusiastic individuals who see opportunity where someone else might see obstacles. I really don’t like to hear criticism for the mere sake of being critical. Let’s work until a tune is born- words and music.

Best regards, Paul

Welcome aboard, Paul.

Thanks Gavin- Thanks for the warm welcome. I see you are from western North Carolina. I lived in those mountains
for 30 years before my wife and I moved here to Iowa about 4 years ago. Our old
place was bordered by two streams and you actually entered the property on a
bridge that extended over a waterfall. We love our home here but miss the mountains
so much we are looking into purchasing a second home back in those beautiful hills.

best regards, Paul

Yes, it is beautiful around here. We’re not actually in the mountains, but in the foothills, which we are grateful for in the winter!
