Lyricist

I write lyrics in many different genres, from pop to theatre musicals, through to rock and progressive-metal. Apart from songs for the music industry, I also write lyrics for television commercials and film soundtracks.

The following albums feature my song lyrics:

‘Shake It’ is a fun and vibrant album by an exceptionally talented young artist, Anna Patai. This was my second major collaboration with composer and music-producer Norbert Szucs who, together with Anna, truly nailed the music on this amazing album. Check out the videos of "Shake It" and "Colors" below, as well as several clips of Anna's TV appearances. And listen to the other tracks on DEEZER.

‘Son of a Gun’ is an ‘80s style classic retro-rock album featuring the brilliant guitar work of Mr Zsolt, the incredible voice of Rudy Cardenas (American Idol finalist), and original hard-nosed rock music by versatile composer and music-producer Norbert Szucs. It features 5 classic rock covers and 7 original tracks. Check out the videos of the title track, “Son of a Gun”, and “Lemme Be Your Man”, below. And listen to the other tracks on DEEZER.

 

I'm always searching for new collaborations; so if you've got any new song ideas, CONTACT ME for lyrics! ;-)

About Me

Peter Linka

Whatever I’m working on, I’m always striving to add that ‘little plus’, which makes that particular project just that little bit better.

This is true whether I’m hosting a fighting sports event, checking the text of a voice-over, preparing for a new film role, writing a song lyric, hosting a television program, or welcoming the guests of an international company at a gala dinner.

I was raised by Hungarian parents in Australia where I graduated from university with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronic Engineering. However, my passion was always for the performing arts and entertainment. In 1988, I received a scholarship to study at the Academy of Drama and Film in Budapest. So I left Australia to pursue my passions in Europe. This has lead to vast collaborations with wondrous people from all over the globe, resulting in the diverse and colourful professional life that I am blessed with today.

A friend once described me as a 'renaissance man'. True, I do many things. As to what I do when, that’s always changing. One thing is always certain: whatever I'm doing, I’m always doing it with passion. In everything I do, my ambition is to always leave a mark that makes people feel, "We got more than we expected, and it’d be great to work with this guy again."

Feel free to explore my Business and Creative activities. I trust you'll find something of interest.
