Lyricist – Shirley Şerban

It wouldn’t be the same…

Without the mind of Shirley, the songs would not have the depth, nor the eloquence it has. Living on the west coast of New Zealand, she has a creative background including writing and photography. “As a Musician myself, it is refreshing to work with someone who has a clear vision and beautifully crafted music, allowing me to colour it with words – Shirley.” http://www.shirleycan.com
