What to Expect

It’s a simple idea. A room of songwriters pass an acoustic around the room play their songs.  Talk about their experiences a little.  Producers and engineers are welcome to bring their latest mix.  The goal is to connect with others who share your passion and get feedback that can help you complete what you’ve started.

Lovers of Original Music

Are welcome!  If you’ve got friends who would dig hearing what you’ve been up to, please bring them along.

Poets and Lyricists

If you’ve got lyric that’s dying to find an artist, would love to have you read-down your work.  Who knows, in a moment of inspiration someone could hook you up w/ a melody.

Idea Development

If you have a song concept that you’ve not started or something you’ve run into a wall with, throw it out there, get some feedback, maybe find a co-author.

Engineers and Producers

Bring your mix.  If you let me know ahead of time I could have a stereo track setup for your song.  Send me an invite to your dropbox or email an MP3.  If you want to use WAV or AIFF you’re welcome to bring that on a flash drive.  If you have a laptop/smartphone/ipad/mp3 player we can run you directly into the console via your 1/8 headphone jack.

Write Your Song

Guilt is about the past ... it’s paralyzing. Conviction is about the future ... it beckons us to greater heights. Forget the past ... press on #writeYourSong
