In addition to the work we do as The Four26, we also run a recording studio where we write and record custom songs. Unlike other personalized songs which only reflect a few sentiments that you provide in an impersonal survey, Four26 Custom Songs are co-created with you for a truly one-of-a-kind piece that reflects your story in every line. You get to be part of the process!
Your story matters, and it's important to use that we honor it completely with our full attention and careful craftsmanship. In fact, our clients report that their custom songwriting process is as rewarding to the gift giver as the custom song is for the gift receiver!
Let us help you celebrate, connect, and inspire with a custom song made just for you!
I wanted to do something special and unique to surprise my bride at our wedding. The song you wrote for our first dance brought my love to life in a way that I never could have imagined! I can still see the tears in her eyes and the love in her smile every time we listen to our song. It's the best song ever!
This song is perfect...I'm in a puddle of tears! My parents will absolutely love it!

Your expectations for creativity and quality are exceptionally high when preparing for a special occasion. Ours are too. We give every piece we write hours upon hours of personalized attention and careful craftsmanship. We promise to deliver the following:
+Creative and personal lyrics
+Compelling and dynamic music
+Professional mixing and mastering
+Real time connection with us either on Zoom or in person

Our personal touch starts before we even begin working together. It's important to us that we fully understand your needs and expectations. To make sure we're the right fit, we start every custom song with a complimentary consultation. During that time together, we'll also walk you through the process and pricing options and answer any questions you have.
You guys are wizards! You managed to translate our heartfelt appreciation and mix it with just the right amount of levity to create a song that feels really fun, upbeat, and authentic.
You hit it out of the ballpark!!
OMG - I don't have words to describe how wonderful this song is!! I can't stop humming the chorus! You hit all the right marks - the melody, the lyrics, the sentiments we shared - absolutely SPOT ON! You are both so talented. Thank you!!!
Written for The Westchester Land Trust's 30th Anniversary and performed live at their 30th Anniversary Gala held at the Rockefeller Family Playhouse.
Created to play over a video montage for a Bar Mitzvah. Loaded with inside stories, "Powered Up" captures the energy and personality of the Bar Mitzvah boy.
A special project co-created with a groom, a poet, who wrote these lyrics specifically for the first dance with his bride at their wedding reception. Peter + Becki took his words and brought them to life with the perfect melody, arrangement, production, and recording.
This was a request for a funny and upbeat song in a rockabilly/50's rock style for a 50th wedding anniversary. Using their questionnaire and based on conversations with the couple's family, Peter + Becki made every lyric ring out with inside stories and anecdotes that the family loved.
Born out of necessity in quarantine, these popular gifts have taken on a life of their own as a scaled back version of our professionally recorded, full-length custom songs.
Custom SongNotes are fun, unplugged, acoustic tunes (usually around one minute in length) written just for you and delivered as a video.
