Rupert Webb

Rupert Webb is an exciting new songwriter to emerge in 2019. He took a midlife change of direction to channel his wide experience into lyric writing and it shows from the mature and insightful lines he produces. Rupert is fond of rhythm, rhyme and alliteration and he uses these to good effect in a variety of situations and subjects. He writes for both male and female voices and often gives advice about how songs can be adapted for different singers or styles.

 
The singer is a woman who is in an abusive relationship, but is determined that it’s her fault and that no-one should overreact as her man is a good guy deep down.
NEW
Exactly what it says in the title. This is a slightly humorous retrospective of the singer’s life. It picks on several random lessons learned before focussing on relationships and specifically in the last verse, a marriage. Would probably suit a three chord rock song or something more broken down in a Talking Heads/Vampire Weekend style.
NEW
This song is about a man who has lost in love and lost everything. He might be a vagrant, or just searching for meaning on a long journey.
NEW
This song is about stress and mental illness, maybe schizophrenia. There is certainly paranoia and fear in the lyrics, but it is mixed with confusion and a list of bizarre happenings. The subject just wants some calm, but they are too busy rationalising their existence to their alter ego. The landlord in question might be another personality in the same mind, but it’s deliberately obscure. The Landlord could easily be changed to a she and refer to the subject as “girl”, not “son” for a female singer. The Queen could be lunching with almost anyone with a three syllable name. I wrote it as Clint Eastwood originally.
