My May Day surprise

Just found out that a song I wrote for a major Canadian group has been solely attributed to another writer for the last nine years. Totally not her fault. Just big music business lookin’ out for the little guy. Gotta love it. Now. How to get my money….hmmm.

The Road to Stanfest

I don’t know how I neglected to post this, but better late than never, I guess. I’m overdue in reporting on my week as an instructor at The Road to Stanfest Songwriting Camp. Wow. What a year. The other instructors were sharp and funny and kind and smart, smart, smart. Doris Mason, Kim Dunn, Thom […]

ROCA House

Thank you all who came out to ROCA in Thursday night. We were knocked out by the numbers and the incredible response. Robert Campbell and Cailin Marie Green are heroes.

The end of the affair. Sort of.

Writer’s in the Round – poets, songwriters – all meeting to cross-pollinate. It was my pleasure to be a facilitator – teaching is too strong a word. The great difference between this experience and previous songwriting […]

Lynn Miles – Downpour

Lynn Miles – Downpour. I’ve been listening to this CD for a few weeks. It’s addicting.  Every song is good – several are great. They make me want to put my guitar down and never again touch it. The only downside is that I wake with those songs in my head, not my own. This […]
