Welcome to my web page
Hey there - I'm Bob McKillop, and I'm a songwriter living in Portland, Maine.
MY HOPE is that you are a music publisher, and that you listen to one of my songs and decide to write me a contract.
Or that you are an artist and decide to cover one of my songs.
Or that you are another songwriter and decide that you want to co-write with me.
BUT MY DREAM is that you will listen to my songs and be moved in some way by what I have created.
I write well structured, hook driven narrative songs about the places we live in, the people we love, and the secrets we struggle with in becoming who we really are.
Some songs are funny; others are poignant, a few are dark – but they usually have some type of redemptive or humorous twist.
I have a lot to learn and much to discover about songwriting; and I have come so far since writing my first song at age five.
I hope that you will become part of the journey.
All the best to you!
