Singer-songwriter is a term that refers to performers who write, compose and sing their own material including lyrics and melodies, often providing the sole accompaniment to an entire composition or song. A number of other well-known musicians may write some of their own songs, but are usually referred to as singers instead. Edit this Artist photo: Bob Dylan

    I sing in a shower how I rubbed my balls. Am I singer-songwriter?

    Perhaps if if you want to rename it, we should rename singer-songwriter as.... lyricists.

    I agree with vasdhjk, this category is ridiculous. Where's the line between 'singer' and 'singer-songwriter'? What if a singer-songwriter sings a someone else's song, does he instantly become a singer? If anything this should be a tag for a song, not for an artist. It is also the most useless category because it says nothing about the type of music, except that there is a singer (for which we have male/female vocalist categories).
