Ran Birkins, Songwriter
I have over 200 songs in my songwriter catalog, including a 19 song Christian Christmas musical, "Two Thousand Years Ago" and a 6 song children's Christmas musical, "You've Got A Friend In Bethlehem." I am self-published and own the copyrights to all my material. I am currently seeking a publishing contract that would include my entire catalog plus my future work.
I write what I call "message music" or "story songs" and many of my songs are Christian, but even my non-Christian songs reflect my values and beliefs (examples are songs with patriotic, pro-life, anti-drunk driving, pro-marriage or pro-family themes). I'm also an "incurable romantic" and many of my songs are of the "love song" variety.
Other than to promote and publicize my songs, I have no desire to perform in public or even be on stage. I would much rather hear tremendously talented singers and musicians perform my songs.
You may visit the Hope Church website and read about my adult Christmas musical Two Thousand Years Ago and watch videos of two songs from the December 2010 production. You can also read about my children's Christmas musical You've Got A Friend In Bethlehem and watch videos of the entire December 2012 production.
Here are a few of my songs.....
