Do you have a great melody idea, a hilarious story or a catchy song title in your back pocket? Now’s your chance to turn it into a song! Experience a true Nashville co-write with experienced songwriters. You’ll discover what it’s like to be in the writing room and create your own song! Bring as much or as little as you’d like to the table and I’ll guide you through the process of crafting lyrics, melodies and music. I’ll let you in on the secrets to writing great songs and answer questions about the business. I may even have some talented friends stop by whom you might recognize from The Voice or American Idol! No prior experience is necessary. We’ll make a work tape at the end of the session, with a voice memo on the iPhone. If you’re interested in having a professional demo made I can connect you to several producers I know outside of this experience. I also offer discounted rates for groups or if you’d like help writing several songs as part of a package. These can be done in person or over video/voice calls. Everyone has a story to tell. Let’s put yours to music!
I am a professional songwriter based in Nashville. Whether I’m writing country, pop or contemporary Christian music, I am a strong collaborator who is able to dig deep to find the gold in others to create rich music. I’ve written with songwriting greats (including Grammy and Dove Award Winners) like Krissy Nordhoff, Jess Cates, Benji Cowart, Tony Wood, Matt Armstrong, Josh Bronleewe and Chris Eaton. I’ve also worked as a music director for a major motion picture starring Academy Award-Winner Louis Gossett Jr. and Tatyana Ali. You can also find me playing shows around town at iconic venues like The Bluebird Café or The Local.
