from Bespoke Songs
Bespoke Songs is the touchingly unique gift idea
written and crafted by critically acclaimed
singer-songwriter Lotte Mullan whose music has
featured in films by Ridley Scott, the LOVEFILM
ad and BBC Radio 2. The perfect way to make a
heartfelt gesture – this is a completely bespoke
song written entirely from your stories and
treasured moments shared with your loved one.
Your song will be professionally recorded by
London’s finest session players who play with
Lana Del Rey, Paul McCartney and the BBC
Symphony Orchestra. Whether you wish for the
full works at Abbey Road or a simple acoustic
recording, your heartfelt message to your loved
one will make a truly ‘once in a lifetime’
keepsake that will be treasured forever.
Your bespoke song will be mixed and mastered
then pressed to vinyl or 'vinyl look CD' (and
mp3) and then beautifully packaged with the
lyrics and your loved one’s name on the disc.
The story behind
Lotte created Bespoke Songs as a sideline to her
recording career, after friends and family raved
about a song she wrote for her boyfriend on
Valentine's Day. She was on the road, touring,
and hadn’t sent a card and wanted to make it up
him so she wrote and recorded Valentine Song and
posted it up online for him to hear.
Not only did he love it but thousands of others
did too and they shared it online with their
loved ones. Not long after it was picked up by
film director Ridley Scott who featured it in
his short film ‘Kismet Diner’ which won first
prize in the Manhattan Short Film festival.
The song became a Youtube hit and Lotte began
receiving many requests to write bespoke song

Once you have decided to indulge someone special
in this thoughtful gift the process is simple;
provide as much information on your loved one as
you can and Lotte will write the most beautiful
song incorporating everything you have shared
with her (this can be via email, Skype or even
meeting up with Lotte in person if you wish).
Once the song is in progress at Lotte’s London
studio, she will send you a ‘work tape’ (demo
version via email) to check you are happy before
recording the final piece.
Your song will then be recorded, either at
Lotte’s Shoreditch studio, or the world famous
Abbey Road (the production can be as grand as
you like - string section, full on big band -
there has even been call for the London
Philharmonic!). However you choose to do it,
this thoughtful gift is the best way to say
everything to someone who means everything to
you and they can keep it forever.
For first dances/ wedding songs Lotte can be in
touch with both Bride and Groom to hear your
romantic tales and treasured moments shared.
What gift do you buy the person you love most in
the world but for whom you have already bought
every present under the sun? A bespoke song is a
truly thoughtful way of telling someone all the
reasons you cherish them, remembering the early
breathless moments and painting a beautiful
picture of the experiences you've shared
together over the years.
For the Proposal
Never ordinarily the easiest of questions to
prepare for, never mind if she or he says ‘no’
how do you make it different? How do you make it
really really memorable? How do you stand out
from everyone else? Bespoke Songs is the answer.
No stumbling over your words – Lotte will make
sure it sounds absolutely perfect ensuring
everything you want to say will be said, and
after all the effort you’ve been through – how
can they say “no”!
The First Dance
When you choose a first dance you try to be
original, steer away form the obvious but select
something where the words ring true to you both.
Take that one step further and have a song
created for you by an acclaimed artist – it’ll
also provide a touching favour for your guests
to leave with. Why not invite Lotte to sing the
song at your wedding, or have a lesson with
Lotte so you can confidently perform it for your
The Wedding Gift
Stumped for an original present for your
Husband/ Bride to be on the morning of the big
day? Nothing shows you know them better than

playing forever to remind them of your special
The New Baby
A bespoke lullaby is a touching gift to

gift for parents and keepsake for years to come.
This gift can be tailored for many other events,

birth of your baby – it’s a once in a lifetime

Bespoke Songs are available on Vinyl or a ‘Vinyl
look’ CD (with mp3 download) and will be
delivered to you for your special occasion.
Lotte’s story has also been optioned for a film
by Elton John's Rocket Pictures. Her outspoken
blog based on her experiences in the music
industry garnered her many fans, and her wry
observations that talent is not always enough
caught the attention of the producers.
Fully bespoke packages are available on request.

piece band recording: from £1500/ Bespoke Songs
Abbey Road package: from £3000.
