'Lyric Line' is a catalog of song lyrics created by Rod Washington over the past 40 plus years. He has mastered the art of story telling for song by writing lyrics not defined by any one specific genre, but rather pays full attention to the development of the storyline -'Let Musicians create the Music!' The lyric's subject matter is drawn from reflecting on life experiences and unadulterated imagination. Presently the catalog consists of 214 song lyrics of which approximately 50 have been recorded with some of the finest musicians located in the greater Milwaukee, Wisconsin metro area. The lyricist would like it to be known that 'Lyric Line' is a clearing house for musicians in search of song lyrics for their music. Lyric Line's most recent CD recording features 'Mr Joe Jordan and Friends' and is titled 'Let's Go To That Place.'
