I’m a songwriter, author and entrepreneur.
I created The Song Foundry and wrote most of the content on the site.
And I like to think here at The Song Foundry we do things a bit differently.
We’re not about breaking into the music industry. We’re not about the latest production software. And we’re not about how you should totally take me seriously because, like, this one time I played ukulele for Lady Gaga.*
We’re about how great songs work. We’re about how great songs are made. We’re about how great songwriters aren’t just musicians, but artists too.
And we’re about how anyone, anywhere can become a great songwriter if they’re prepared to stick at it.
I know we’re not for everyone. If being famous is more important to you than writing great material, we probably can’t help you. But if you’re here to master your art form, think outside the box and unlock every last drop of your creative potential, you’ve come to the right place.
Welcome. I’m glad you found us.
