Start With Something That's True

A Top 25 Songwriting Blog

A Top 25 Songwriting Blog

Thank you for your support!

I created this site back in 2009 when the internet was but a wee lass. I used blogspot and tossed out a few musings on a blog called lyrist101.

How the world has changed!

The goal of this songwriting blog is to create tools for songwriters.

Any songwriter . . . whether you’re sitting in your bedroom and journaling your most personal thoughts, aspire to bring your message to the world as a singer-songwriter, or want to write a hit for Jason Aldean, Lady Gaga or Maren Morris.

I’m passionate about songwriting because it has the ability to empower people.

And we could all use a little empowerment!

Thank you for using the tools, reading the posts and supporting the web site.

Songs make a difference. I’m glad we’re all a part of something so life changing.
