To celebrate the launch of my new album, Ooh Aah!, and the launch of this lovingly refreshed website, I’m sending #lovenotesofgratitude all February long! Each note will thank a person, and/or a resource that I have found helpful in my artistic life. I’ll post the notes on Facebook and Twitter, so please be sure to find me there!
By the end of February, all of the people/resources will be listed here, in case they might help you too!
With much love and gratitude,

The first of my #lovenotesofgratitude is to YOU and the first resource I’m sharing is YOU.
Yes, YOU! The most important creative resource I could possibly share with you, is YOU!
The seed of all your creative work is in you – your body, your spirit, your voice, your intuition, instinct, soul…it’s all in YOU!
Every resource I have to share helps you to get in touch with your own creativity!
So stay tuned….

Today is for #TheSongWritersIdeaBook by #SheilaDavis.
My friend and teacher, Rob Frayne introduced me to this book.
Davis has written many highly regarded songwriting books – this is the only one I have and I’ve found even the first chapter so helpful for the last 10 years that I’ve hardly looked further!!!!
It’s packed with SUCH concrete helpful information – tons of which you can preview on amazon – for ex., The Top Ten Writing Principles and The Key Decisions – these are two lists of ten items per list. I go through every song, one item at a time, and see how I can clarify/hone according to each item.
Whether I’m studying a song, learning a song, writing, honing, or preparing for a performance I’ve found these lists super clarifying time and time again, song after song, album after album.
I tell all my songwriting students – total beginners to pre-professionals – to take a look. I hope it helps you too!
