Bio

Hello, my name is Mandy Ellis and I am a lyricist. I began to explore writing lyrics when I was really young. Nothing really became of it, I wrote a good amount of lyrics every week. I started to transform my songs into poems, to enter contests. The first contest I entered was at the age sixteen. It was called “International Library of Poets” the winner won $1000 and plaque. I did not win, however that year I was chosen as Editor’s choice. I won no money, but my poem was published in a book of poetry for all to see. When I was sent my copy of the book, I opened it up to find my poem on the very first page. The success of this lead me to write more an more. I tried writing more poems but they always seemed to turn out more like song lyrics in the way they flowed. It was then that I knew I was done with poems because my real passion was writing songs. All of my life’s stories were my inspiration.
In tenth grade I was also introduced to music technology. This seemed to be the first class of its kind. We were introduced to the program Finale. This program seemed to flare up my second passion, composing music. Though I was a violist, that knowledge was not well used until my introduction to Finale. Finale is a computer program that allows one to compose their own musical pieces. It was so much fun. I came up with all kinds of crazy notes and riffs. This made me want to learn more instruments, so I took up the guitar. Learning guitar was supposed to help my write rhythms to my lyrics but I just wasn’t that musically inclined. I could play the guitar alright but I wasn’t good able to create anything worth while. So this brings me back to my ultimate goal; lyricist. Few people get their words published in writing, now I want my word published on a record.
