About Z. Mulls
Z. Mulls is an eclectic, versatile lyricist living in the Philadelphia area. He is the recipient of the 2007 Grand Prize in the International Songwriting Competition for his collaboration with Kazakhstan composer Eduard Glumov, "I'm Not Your Friend." Z. collaborates with musicians across the globe, creating songs that approach life from all angles. He is at home in genres from cabaret to country to indie rock to any song form where there is a story to be told. His Philadelphia home gives him access to the local chapter of NARAS, and the Philadelphia Songwriters Project where he is writing songs with local performing artists. He often goes to venues like like the World Cafe Live and the Tin Angel. He has a song in performance at this year's Maryland Renaissance Festival. In addition to the prize in the ISC, he and Glumov also took a First Prize in the Rock/Alt division of the Great American Song Contest. The GASC judge remarked that not only was it "a superb example of world-class songwriting," but the "lyrical images are fresh, effective and often stunning." The collaborators met on the Muses' Muse website, a resource and networking site for songwriters. Z.'s impressive breadth of work is on display on his website. Over twenty-five songs are featured, including a few Z. wrote the music for himself. And there are more than seventy-five uncomposed lyrics showing his remarkable range and chamelonlike ability to shift tone and voice to meet the needs of many different artists. Inquries about publishing or other use of the songs and lyrics on this site should be directed to Z. personally. Z. Mulls is affiliated with BMI, as both a writer and publisher.
