I'm a proud member of Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), SongTown, SongU, Songwriting Pro, Global Songwriters Connection (GSC) & Barbara Cloyd's Play For Publsher Workshop songwriting communities. I live in Nashville and spend my time co-writing, playing Writer Nights and networking. Here is a list of communities & services I LOUDLY endorse. Multiple hit writers Marty Dodson and Clay Mills at Songtown and Brent Baxter of Songwriting Pro are incredible teachers/mentors, and the demos at Larry Beaird's - Beaird Music Group studios blow me away every time. I also have received some great demo work from Pete Sallis, and the many unforgettable memories when I used to play the Sunday Writer's night at the legendary Bluebird Cafe. Sheree Spoltore at GSC is an amazing mentor and true champion for me and all the songwriters at GSC.
I'm blessed to have been selected in October, 2017 for SongTown's Staff Writer Club working directly with Nashville Songplugger Ronna Reeves; chosen for SongTown's September, October 2017 & January 2019 Most Wanted List; featured multiple times as a Songwriter recognized in NSAI E.A.R.S. November, 2014, January 2015, January 2016, May 2016, July 2016 & December 2016, March 2017, April 2017, 2018, & 2019 multiple issues for writing songs "Recommended for Consideration to the Quarterly NSAI Nashville Publisher Luncheon"; April 2017 & January 2019 songs selected for NSAI's 2Q 2017 & 1Q 2019 Publisher Luncheon Compilation CD given to 50+ Music Row publishers; January 2015, October 2016, January 2017, September 2017 recognized as an NSAI "Writer On The Rise" and "One To Watch"; a song placement on NSAI's 1Q 2017, 2Q 2017 & 1Q 2018 Top 40 Song Page; & 4 songs nominated by SongU as "Best of Song U".
I've also had a song selected in the "Top 10 Songs" for Songwriting Pro/Brent Baxter's Play 4 Publisher December 6, 2016 web event, and selected 2 times as one of 16 writers for Barbara Cloyd's Play For Publsher Workshop March 2-4, 2017 & February 28-March 1, 2019 in Nashville to play my songs for 6 top Music Row publishers. More detailed steps of affirmation can be found on my Songwriting Journey page.
I'm continually working to improve my craft of songwriting to write better songs, and each of these in their own way help me along my path. I've got some demos to share, but I won't post them publicly, as I'm actively trying to get my songs published and recorded.
I'll see you in Nashville!
