A New Adventure…

So I have a confession…

I have a secret…

Something in my past…

That I’ve not shared with many people…

When I was younger…

I used to play guitar…

and write my own music…

I actually created an album…

of original songs…

that I sold on iTunes…

and I was in a rock band…

and I was on the radio…

and I won talent shows…

and songwriting competitions…

and I had so much fun.

And now I’m going to start…

Professionally recording my songs I’ve written….

To market and sell to publishing companies!

I was recently listening to Lori McKenna’s new album, she has a song called “Stuck in High School” and one of the lyrics goes “That picture in the hallway, 18 and graduating did you ever make those dreams come true, or is a kid still waiting.” I have a kid still waiting with a notebook and album full of songs tucked deep in my memory box where they’ve waited until now.

The songwriting has turned back on just as suddenly as it turned off 7 years ago and I’ve got a new notebook full of songs with a more mature sound, and lyrics that have grown with me into adulthood. In the meantime, I’m revisiting my first album, released in 2012 and looking at the lyrics through a microscope as I gear up to begin professionally recording on November 18th to create a demo to send to publishers in the industry.

My intention is to become a songwriter – not an artist. I’m the story writer not the story teller – a dream I can safely chase from the comfort of NEIA.

I’m so excited about this project! I can’t wait to keep you posted! Thanks for reading friends!

    How exciting! Have you seen the TV songwriting show called Songland? It’s one of my favorites. Maybe a bucket list item for you? Good luck on this renewed venture!

    That is so exciting!!! I’m looking forward to hearing what you write! You may be the story writer, but you will be the story teller to sell your songs!!! I hope you share one with us!

    Somehow I knew that you’d been in a band. Maybe it was mentioned here or on your Mom’s blog. It’s so exciting that you are moving forward with your dream. I wish you lots of luck and can’t wait to hear more about your road ahead.
