It takes only 1 song to bring back 1000 memories, so why not honour your special day by having your very own personal first dance song written and produced for you by the highly skilled and industry-renowned songwriter/producers Antony & Anthony (aka The Jetters)!
The Jetters have been fortunate enough to gather a wealth of experience, writing for some of the biggest pop bands in the business, as well as having much success in the TV advertising world. Whether it be a romantic first dance song for your wedding video, or a fun, thoughtful song for your loved one’s birthday, reference your preferred style and genre, in addition to what you would like it to say, and leave it with them to return your personalised, top quality original song, complete with stunning vocals! This would be a unique memento to treasure forever, and to be used wherever or however you want. If you’ve also booked The Jetters to play at your event, they can even perform it live for no extra charge.
Singer Antony co-wrote McFly single ‘Love is Easy’ which was a hit in many countries and gained 11 million hits on YouTube!
Another McFly co-write of Antony’s is ‘Sunny side of the street’, which featured on the 2015 Morrisons TV adverts.
Record-producer and composer Anthony (yes they’re both called Anthony!) composed and produced the music for the Cosatto TV advert in 2015.
He also composed and produced the ‘Visit Manchester with Virgin trains’ TV advert for Christmas 2015.
The tailor-made song will be written and produced to the highest industry standard. We will consult with the client to gain insight into the memories, thoughts, tones, stories and even jokes that they would like integrated into the song, as well as to determine what genre, tempo and emotions the client would like the music to incorporate. Throughout the process of creating the song, we can keep the client updated with our progress and gain their feedback on the lyrical process as we go along, ensuring that they are happy with the finished product. Upon completion, the first dance song can be packaged any way the client wants; whether transferred as an mp3 to use for the wedding video, or packaged as a beautifully made CD specifically for you or for all of your guests, we can arrange it for you.
As a standard package, the song would contain guitar, piano, vocals, vocal harmonies and some minimal percussion if necessary. Think Ed Sheeran’s ‘The A Team’ or John Legends ‘All of me’.
How long would it take to write an original song?
It normally take us around two days worth of working hours to write and produce a full song. We tend to spend a day to get the bare bones of the track recorded then after gaining feedback from the client, we’d make any changes they might want and put the finishing touches on. It’s important to note that the hours worked could be split into a few different days over the course of one to two weeks.
How much time and effort would it take on our part?
It would take a minimal amount of your time up depending on what you want. We would probably speak on the phone once to really gauge what you want from the song, then correspond through a few emails as the process starts. In order to give us as much information as possible to write the song, you may want to sit down and write a few memories and stories down to send to us. There may be some back and forth correspondence regarding the packaging and design of CD sleeves if that option is taken up.
If we had a favourite song, would you be able to create an original song that is very similar to it?
Yes we can certainly use the song as inspiration to emulate it as much as possible (without it sounding like plagiarism obviously). We’re experienced writers in many different genres. The standard package however offers the song in a semi acoustic style instrumentally. If you would want the song to be in a band style with extra instruments such as strings, horns, rock drums etc then extra costs may apply.
If I chose the CD option, would it come with a case and picture, title etc. on said case? Or would it be just a disc in a plastic wallet?
If you chose the CD option, there are many different avenues of design to go down. Anything from a jewel case (as you would see from a chart artist) to card wallets, or indeed plastic wallets are available. Printing on the actual disk is also an option for all of those. You could even have the high end option of jewel case just for your copy, as well as a more budget plastic wallet case for all of you wedding guests. This can all be discussed during any enquiries.
Would you be able to make the song a surprise for my new wife on the big day for our first dance?
