I am a songwriter and I compose the melodies while my partner Ricki E. Bellos writes our lyrics. We write some contemporary folk, some Americana and modern country. We have been together now a little over two years and the relationship to date has been very rewarding. We're working towards getting cuts and more film placements. We have placed several songs in a documentary about homeless vets in LA called Duty, Honor, Country: Betrayal, an Indie film and a recently aired program on Wisconsin Public TV about teen suicide.

In 2013, we had additional songs elected for two different documentaries that are currently in the editing process and aired in 2014.

Our interest is to continue to get TV/film placements.

We had four songs picked up by a Texas publisher and another song selected through broadjam in December 2013.

thanks for your review of my Song "Choirs of the Angels". I understand what you are saying about having the title jump out. However, this is actually one of my most popular songs as is, and gets a lot of attention globally through different channels. Thanks again for your feedback, and wishing you well.
