Lyrical Music


These are all original songs by singer songwriter Nial Connolly. The list of song titles below the soundcloud playlist is in the order of the writing of the songs most recent on top. Click on the title and it will go to an MP4 recording with lyrics and chords. You can search by song title in the Alphabetical menu. This list is most recent first.

I started working with a songwriting group in 2017 and we were writing a song a week for a few months, went to a song a month in 2018 which really didn’t work for me, but then went back to a song a week in 2019. So I have been uploading them to soundcloud and now that I used up all my free space there so I decided to build this site.

 It has been really fun, I know that these songs are not really polished but the process is very fun and creative. A song a week is a challenge, writing lyrics, music, recording instruments and vocals. We get a prompt which has to be in the song on Monday morning and it has to be recorded and uploaded my midnight Sunday night.

 This paragraph is basically a justification for them not being up to my own standards, but it is about the songwriting, I would love for an excellent musician with a wonderful voice to learn some of my songs, they are really pretty simple.
