A songwriter is a person who writes the words and music for a song. If a person writes only words, then he is called a songwriter, but if only music - a composer. Lately, writing a song can be distributed among several people. Songwriters can work for music publishers or write songs themselves. Professional songwriters may be present at the recording of the song in the studio next to the performer.
