Hi there. I'm excited to join a new song-writing forum smile
I live in a small Ontario Canada town near Ottawa and do home recordings of many different genres.
Not trying to get rich - just having fun and glad to have another place to share my music and hear what others have produced.
Best Wishes
Paul

Welcome aboard the board. Many songwriters here, some lyrics only, some music only, some do both. We are family and like most families, we sometimes have disagreements but mostly over other things beside music, like politics.

Howdy everyone. Just wanted to say I'm looking forward to using this network again. I had great success meeting and networking with folks all over the map several years ago when I was a busy songwriter. I've been out for a while but I'm back to stay and pick up where I left off. I posted the following on the songwriter section. Thanks. Rich Murray

" I know a handful of jpf members, but I've been away from the writing side of the business for a few years. Just a few "life happens" things that trumped quality writing time, studio time, promotional efforts, etc. Anyway, I'm happy to say I'm in a good place now as far as writing and promotion goes. I've never posted anything online, but I have a couple co-writers that posted here and there. I just got on sound cloud tonight. I posted the 1st song I ever wrote. Details are on the page : https://soundcloud.com/user-667419260/school-days I'm going to make an Americana style album later this year, but as always I'm seeking to get things cut by other artists. A little info about me here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rich-murray-326b1035/ Mostly want to focus on new country and Americana stuff right now. Respectfully, Rich Murray I prefer e-mail for co-write discussion, mm2cap@iquest.net "

Hello all,
Joined today amid the strange world we find ourselves in with a pandemic changing all of our lives. I still have to work at the hospital in engineering maintenance, only scaled back to half our usual shifts, with the Coved 19 looming over everything we do. Strange times, but a chance to do some things we always complain we never have time for. A time for personal reflection, what's important, what's not, what if we only had a few weeks or months to complete our life, what would we do? Makes you think! No downer here, just being real. What we need is more music to express what we feel, champion our abilities, honing our gifts, practicing our craft, yet not ignoring the needs around us.
I'm working on a dozen songs or so from 40 years of life, rerecording them with Cubase this time. Looking forward to sharing them in the future. My songs come from my Christian faith unashamedly, if any of you are interested.

Kevin

Hello all plain folks out there,
like many members I am sure I have a nurtured an almost life long dream of becoming a real songwriter, that is at least reaching a semi-professional level where more and more of my life will circle around my songwriting.

I became a member a long time ago, but for some reason I didn't become active on the site and this is actually my first post so you could say that I am a new member :-)

I am looking forward to network, learn from and share with all the nice talented people in these forums from now on.

In my late teens I played in a synthpop band, which was close to getting to getting signed with a US major label and the same (still close but no cigar ;-) with a rave/trance duo in the early 90s. In the late 00's at last the project I was part of, Reproject, got signed and released a few tracks and remixes. After that I have produced and remixed on my own under the alias Dewdrops on Mars.

Ever since the early 80s when a music teacher got me into songwriting I have known that it is my true calling and that if I will leave any significant footstep in human history it will probably be as a songwriter. I know I have really good songs within me, waiting to get out there, but I have written very few songs the last years and want to jumpstart my songwriting. I still love to remix and produce tracks, but I want to write full fledged songs and collaborate with talented people to make my dreams and others dreams fly... To write in different genres and different types of songs...

Hope to get to know a lot of people in here.

Although these are trying times, I am a Swede and therefore naturally apt for social distancing and self-isolation ;-) and hope to use the extra time at home to take my songwriting and producing to the next level while interacting virtually with people from different corners of the world.

All the best,
Gustav Persson
Sweden

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

I see I'm not the only prodigal returning!!! smile

Y'all, I can't believe it's been TEN YEARS since I logged in. Okay... I can. A LOT happened and began a whirlwind in my life in 2010.
So much has changed!

My name (Bree has always been a nickname, Bridgette is my given name. I've gone back to that and my maiden name ~ O'Hare)
My marital status (hence the last name change).
My location.
My occupation.
My attitude...well, just a little. I'm still a snarky firecracker. wink

I can't wait to see who's still here encouraging and offering awesome advice!

Looking forward to reconnecting and maybe even writing a lyric or two. smile
