Kay Bell: lyricist‒writer‒author



Lyrically Speaking - Softcover and ebook


 “How many songs have we lost when a lyricist could not find a musician nor the musician

a lyricist? The answer for the bereft musician could well lie within the pages of Lyrically

Speaking—a plethora of superbly crafted lyrics from the soul of Kay Bell”


James Shipstone, RCA Records. BMG Records.

 A song has the indefinable and irresistible power to instantly transport you to another place and

time. But before that song can reach its audience, a rare and special partnership must be

launched between the words and the music. In this groundbreaking publication—intended to

inspire just such artistic collaborations—award winning lyricist Kay Bell shares a poignant collection

of her original lyrics, the beating heart for up to 180 potential songs, to openly elicit creative

collaborations with composers around the world.


Kay Bell is an award-winning lyricist who has received global recognition for both her lyrics and

co-written songs. Drawn to human understanding, she hopes her words will support the quest

for connection and global peace. Her passion for storytelling (in prose and lyrical form) is the

catalyst that propels Kay’s words out in search of realising their potential.
