Shaye Smith Custom Lyric Videos creates one-of-a-kind custom lyric videos for singers, bands and songwriters using stock video clips and images. I subscribe to a few stock video and image sites and use quality 1080p HD clips to construct your video. I start from scratch and build your video based upon your directions and based upon what best fits your song. Each video is built one at a time and customized to fit your desired outcome.
I have worked in the music industry for 25+ years, as a Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer and band manager. I understand songs and how each song has a story to tell...and that a quality lyric video is highly desired by music fans. I first noticed that music fans would construct their own lyric videos of their favorite bands and their songs over 10 years ago while I, myself, was managing a rock band and attempting to promote their music.
I began constructing very simple lyric videos for the band, using iMovie. A few years later, I constructed a more creative lyric video using stock video clips and soon found that many of my singer / songwriter friends wanted me to build lyric videos for their music. So...thus began Shaye Smith Custom Lyric Videos in 2017. I now use Final Cut Pro X to construct lyric videos...which is the preferred video editing application by many lyric video companies as well as several Hollywood film editors.
Since late 2017, I've created more than 100 lyric videos, including several for Grammy-winning Pop/Rock superstar Christopher Cross (Sailing, Ride Like The Wind)...as well as many other successful singers, bands and songwriters signed to record labels and publishing companies around the world.
