You don't have to be a musician/songwriter to enjoy this experience: it's for everyone. The goal is to write something meaningful to you, that tells a piece of your own story and that you'll be able to take a recording of it home. First, you will be invited to meet up at our home studio in historic East Nashville to learn a little about each other. I will enjoy getting to know about your life and helping to find your inspiration/reason to write our song that day. We will then begin our writing and recording process. I want you to feel completely comfortable and to be open about your important life experiences, so we can hone in on your desired subject matter. I would love to know your favorite styles of music and artists so we can draw from inspiration that resonates with you, personally. In the end, you’ll leave this experience with a recorded demo of the song we wrote together.
Hi!! I traveled the world playing violin, guitar, mandolin and singing background vocals behind Multi-Grammy winning superstars like Ringo Starr, Taylor Swift, Shakira, Keith Urban, Dave Stewart etc. Between those tours, I performed nightly for tens of thousands of fans in sold-out stadiums and arenas around the globe. When I'm not busy with my music, I love impressionist painting, rugged endurance hiking, and kayaking in my native Pacific Northwest.
Feel free to bring your own beverage if you'd prefer.
You'll go home with a demo of our song, recorded on the spot, with instruments and vocals tracked by me after we finish…
We can meet at our home studio and get right into it, or at our local hang, The Post East coffee shop (just a block away from my home studio) to get acquainted before we kick off.
If you don't feel inspired that day, don't worry about it. You can just let me bring the creative flow and point out your favorite parts.
