Temporary Assignment / Bio

I'm a songwriter from Johannesburg, South Africa. I started playing the guitar when I lived in London a few years ago, where I used to jam with a good mate of mine, Courtney. I wrote my first song over there, "Don't wanna be alone", toying with a few chords one evening and that's where songwriting all started for me.

I continued writing songs when I moved back home and now have a decent catalogue that I hope to share with artists and producers who may want to use it in their work. Unfortunately, I don't quite have the vocal ability to make it in the music industry, but have needed to record the songs as a reference for others.

My desire is to emulate other notorious songwriters who have written music and lyrics for a number of award winning artists over the years and I really believe I can do it.

The songs I have on RN were recorded by singer / songwriter / producer, Jonathan Shaw. It has taken quite a while to get these recordings under my belt, as I do this all part time, hence the name chosen to represent my artistic profile, Temporary Assignment.

If you're an artist, label or producer looking for material, please feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to share it with you.

Positive and negative criticism is always welcome.
