New Path To Your Personalized Song: Build From An Existing Foundation
When people ask us what our mission is, we simply say “to help people spread love and leave a positive impact on the world through music.” Yeah, we know we sound like hippies, but after bringing hundreds of everyday people’s stories to life and witnessing the overwhelmingly positive impact our Personalized Songs From Scratch have had, we believe we’re truly on to something.
One of the challenges we face in accomplishing our mission in a big way is accessibility. Based on customer feedback, we know that the songs we’re delivering are bringing value far beyond their price tag, but we also realize that introducing something so unique at a premium price is limiting the number of people who will get a chance to experience the magic of it.
Introducing a new way to build your personalized song: Build From An Existing Foundation.
To easily understand this, you can think of it like picking out a greeting card at your favorite store. First, you select a card with a look and design that fits your personality, similar to selecting the genre and style of the foundation song yo select to build upon. Next, you open the card up and read the pre-written messages and find one that represents the feelings in your heart, similar to selecting the words within the chorus of your foundation song. You then bring it home and write a personal message in it to reflect your exact feelings and unique stories, similar to going through our Story Guide and having your selected artist personalize your song’s verses.
Below, we break down this product so you can fully understand how it works and which option to start your personalized song is the better fit for you and your special occasion.
What is a Song Foundation?
Mentioned above, you can view our song foundation as the design and the pre-written message in the greeting card. Our song foundations consist of an instrumental with a vocal chorus that have been created specifically for Songfinch. So they don’t exist anywhere else. So similar to a greeting card, you select the vibe and feel of the vocalist and music to fit your personality, while listening to the words of the chorus to select the message that conveys the message you’d like to convey. Below is a bit on what an instrumental and chorus is.
Instrumental. Your instrumental is the music. Depending on your genre, this will consist of guitar, piano, drums, strings and/or a mix of those. This helps set the feel, style and vibe of your song.
Chorus. The chorus is the part of the song that repeats a few times throughout and usually gets stuck in your head. It’s generally where the main message lies and fits snug in between the verses of the song.

How To Personalize These Song Foundations?
While the foundation acts as the pre-written message in the greeting card, next comes the part the resembles your personal written message inside the card. You know, the part that makes the biggest emotional impact. This makes the message true to you, your feelings and your unique story with the person you are gifting the song to.
After you’ve selected your foundation song, you journey through our Song Creation Experience and share some of your favorite memories, stories and feelings. This is what your songwriter uses to write the verses of your song shaping the song into your own one-of-a-kind masterpiece. The songwriter working on it will be the same one that made your foundation song so it will flow together and sound like one cohesive song.
The End Product
