WHAT IS THE POWER BEHIND

KORY’S CUSTOM MADE SONGS ?

IT’S THE SUBTLE WAY THEYTARGET THE OPEN

RECEPTIVENESS OF THE HEART. The heart is a place where love grows, where love is nurtured. The heart is the place from where love is sent to other hearts. The heart is prone to love. The heart will always welcome a message of love, be it one of honour, of acknowledgement or recognition. It’s all about the same thing …LOVE.

Gift giving is a time for hearts to shine, for both giver & receiver. It’s a time for attention and mutual admiration. My Custom Made Songs are sent from heart to heart, and therefore they have to be handled very carefully and skillfully. A Custom Made Song not made with care, understanding & love, will not convey the message you want get across.

WHAT SEPARATES MY SONGS FROM THOSE OF OTHER ARTISTS ?

The aimof most song writers is to compose a song that will fit a “hit song formula” , as defined by

corporately owned commercial radio stations. As a result, these writers make carbon copy songs of what they hear on the radio. They even sing them the same way. There is nothing unique about that approach. Cookie cutter formulas that result in cookie cutter products are useful… MacDonald’s, Wendy’s, &

Taco Bell franchises, are living proof that this approach works well. However, the whole purpose of a

Custom Made Gift is completely defeated by a cookie cutter song!

Red Check Mark I acknowledge the fact that you are a unique individual & therefore you deserve premium service & my undivided attention to your needs
Red Check Mark I listen to your concerns. Your song is centered around what you have to say
Red Check Mark I come to you with over 30 years of experience in the music business. With that background you can trust that you will be completely thrilled with your song
Red Check Mark My experience in the music industry has allowed me to meet people from all over the world. Because of this I am open-minded & sensitive to the elements of so many different cultures, backgrounds and environments
Red Check Mark I am familiar with every style/type of music you can name,therefore you are able to have your song written in any flavour or style that you wish!

What Are They Saying About Kory?

Record Reviewers

‘Smooth jazz licks are coupled with blues intentions on Kory Livingstone’ s “You Were in My Eyes.” You gotta love that plucked upright bass that just grooves as Kory’ s sugar-coated vocals soar above all the harmonies one could muster forth from fingers and sipping on your drink as you relax to some of the best jazz you may have ever heard. I love his throwbacks to the classics like Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Duke Elington, and others via the great piano play. Excellent ‘ .www.smother.ne

Corporations

” Dear Kory,It was pleasure to meet you on Saturday, and I wanted to thank you for a wonderful show. It was first class all the way. Your extensive training really becomes evident in your musical interpretation ” …..J.G TRW

Radio

” Kory Livingstone…the beginning of something very special ! …the next sensational male singer”….George Jenescu

Concert Promoters

“Kory Livingstone.. to accompany yourself on piano while singing songs from the great eras of Jazz, and to do this with elegance requires enormous talent. Kory Livingstone, just like Nat KIng Cole and Ray Charles before him, succeeds in this most demanding area of Jazz. His rich voice and lyrical piano playing are perfectly suited to the sophisticated repertoire that he performs in his shows ” …Barrie Jazz & Blues Festival

Managers

“I have admired your persistent quiet determination & attention to details. It is more than talent, it is mature determination ” .N.H. ( Toronto )

MY CUSTOM SONGS ARE

EMOTION BY DESIGN!

Song writing just doesn’thappen! My songs are born as a result of my personal

innovation, inspiration and a quiet determination. My Custom

Made Songs are a precise and delicate integration of music,

voice , words and sound, all of which ultimately creates an

emotional experience that you will never forget. When you

present your special person with a Custom Made Song by Kory

Livingstone, you will be noticed!

Just imagine you are the young bride about

to have your first waltz of the evening with your father.

It’ s not just any old waltz.Your father has officially

given you away as you start your own family. It’ s been

a long road to this point, full of ups & downs, thrills

chills and you remember every one of them. The baseball

games, the dancing lessons , how he taught you how to catch

a ball , your first bicycle ..the thoughts pour in like

a river. The thing you most want to say to your father at

this time is, ” Dad , I love you ” ! Tell him in a song

. Yes these three simple words are magnified a 1000 times

when you put them in a song .

Picture of a star for testimonials information The song you wrote was a huge success!!!!!

My dad loved it and mom cried. As a matter of

fact a lot of family members and guests shed

a tear at our father/daughter dance because

they knew how special our relationship is. Who

ever is next on my list of family and friends

to get married I will tell them about you for

a wedding song!!! Or a special occasion song!!!

Again, thank you. L.F. (Boston)

I Pride Myself

On Old Fashioned “First Class”

Service !

Let me tell you a story abouta shopping experience I recently had at an outlet

of a large nationally known sporting goods company

( I won’t mention their name ). I needed

a pair of good jogging shoes. They carried everything

in this store. If it would help you run, jump,

or fly, they had it. Everything

was there that is except a sales person

to help me find what I needed.

No problem! I know how to help myself. I selected

several styles of shoes to try on & then searched

for a sales clerk to get my size. I found three

employees at the cash register chewing the fat.

When I asked for help one young lady gave me a,

“Well I guess if I have to” , look

then picked up the intercom and paged someone.

This fellow strolled out from a back room. From

the look on his face I knew I was disturbing his

quiet time. I gave him my samples & he retreated

to the storeroom. He returned a while later saying,

“Sorry, we don’t have your size”.

Did he say, “I can phone one of our other

stores to see if they have it you r size?” No! Did he say,

“I can order it from our warehouse?” No! He turned and

sauntered off to the back room. I

drove home (with my money still in my wallet) wondering how this store stayed in business. I

searched online for the particular company that

made the brand of shoe that I wanted and drove

over. It was a fair distance away, but I went

anyway. It was a company store that specialized

exclusively in their own brand of athletic shoes.

It was about one tenth the size of the giant retail

chain store that I had just visited. What

happened next I was not prepared for! As

I walked into the store, a sales person greeted

me and showed me what he had in the price range

and style that I was looking for. He measured

my foot! Can you believe it? I haven’t had

my foot measured since I was a kid, when my Dad

would take me to our local shoe store to buy new

shoes every spring.

Listen

to this! The salesman asked me to walk

to the front of the store & back while he

observed my gate. He saw that my right foot leaned

to one side & suggested a different model

shoe that would help correct this. He even laced

up the shoes on my feet. How

is that for service! Needless to say I

bought the shoes. I spent much more here, than

I would have at that giant retailer I visited earlier.

Why ? Because I got a product that satisfied

my personal needs … not to mention their

“First Class” personalized service.

Of course I’ll be recommending “New

Balance” to my friends & family.

Like “New Balance”, I pride myself on old fashioned, first class service!

You can

trust you’ll get MY COMPLETE ATTENTION, focused

on your PERSONAL NEEDS!

Most folks have difficultyexpressing their feelings in meaningful manner. It’s a very

common problem. because they’re not professional poets. I

save you a whole lot of frustration trying to do it yourself. You

are not sure just how or where to start. You get really frustrated

when you start thinking about what you really want to say and the

words just won’t come out right. Don’t worry. You’re

not alone! Like I said earlier, my job is to relieve you of all

the pain & discomfort associated with trying to do it yourself.

I make it very easy for you. You simply provide me with some basic

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE TO PAY IFBILLY JOEL WROTE YOU A CUSTOM

MADE SONG, & CELINE DION SANG IT ?

Youwould have to re mortgage your home to be sure! Needless to say, only a Donald Trump or a Sheik of Arabie could afford it. I have my own in-house, recording

studio. This means I save you money by cutting out the middlemen

involved in renting time at a commercial recording studio. Commercial

studios charge upwards of $3-400.00 per hour just to record the music for a CD. This may or may not

include the musicians, arranger, orchestrator, producer, sound engineer,

not to mention the actual cost of

writing the words & composing the music for your song.

I do all of this work for you, personally.

As you can tell from the many music samples you have heard, my musical

talents & skills are every bit as equal if not better, than

any of big names in the music industry today. But, as in real life,

you always pay a huge premium for

brand names. (That’s why I never get my car

repaired at the dealership). Getting one of my Custom Made Songs

puts you on equal footing as the high rollers, and you know you

are getting the same great product at an unbelievable price!

When I arrange or write for outside professional recording studios

I charge an average $500.00 per hour.

Typically a professionally produced song takes anywhere from 30-40

hours to complete from start to finish and could cost you over

$ 20,000.00, provided there are no unforeseen

circumstances, such as singers or musicians, engineer etc. not

doing a good enough job& therefore ,the whole recording has

to be redone at an additional cost to you.

When you order one of my Custom Made Songs you know the price.

Period.

It’s 3 easy payments of only

$ 327.00! It doesn’ t matter if it takes me 20

hours or 100 hours to produce a song that you will be completely

satisfied with…that’s all you pay. Canadian residents

are subject to gst and provincial tax.

THISOFFER WILL NOT LAST MUCH LONGER
Remember …I create these songs one at a time, because I serve my clients one at a time.I am proud of what I create. If you miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity, you will

regret not having taken advantage of it .

You will lose the chance to express your feelings and emotions for an occasion that will never

present itself again .

This is your chance to capture the most most important time of your life that you can keep

forever . Don’t miss this opportunity . Don’t miss this one chance to let let your love flow .

Don’t let the time come when you have to say “I wish I had done it, when I had the chance

looking me right in the eye”.

A Custom Made Song crafted by Kory Livingstone is the solution to your gift problems

It’s convenient! It saves you time and effort and has an impact that no other gift can ever

hope to achieve.
