This past weekend, I led the second Online Songwriting Retreat, and I was reminded again that we are ultimately creative beings. I didn’t know if it would be possible to achieve the same intimate connection with other writers over the internet as we do at in-person songwriting workshops, but these groups developed trust together and shared their deepest stories. We laughed and cried together. Most importantly, we wrote together.

We still have a few spots open for next weekend, August 24-26, and I just announced October 12-14. Sign up for either one at

This Wednesday, it will be our pleasure to have Ordinary Elephant as our special guest at The Kraken. Scroll down to listen to a great song. Show starts at 7pm.
