Mark Cawley and Kye Fleming have been friends and co-writers for over 20 years and on the rare occasion, have done workshops together. We’re excited to say they’ll be coming to Clarendon Presbyterian Church to present a one of a kind workshop for songwriters of all ages and levels!
This will be a full day with a unique look into the creative process, including toolbox tips you’re not going to find in books.
Through their own stories, as well as videos from some of their friends including Grammy and Dove winning writers and producers, they’ll take you on a journey from inspiration to creation to help you become the most powerful songwriter you can be!

"Kye Fleming is a rarity, a bridge between traditional and modern country music and a creative force who helped expand Nashville's reach. Her songs helped redefine and revitalize a genre. A two-time BMI Pop Songwriter of the Year and three-time BMI Country Songwriter of the Year with 38 BMI Awards across multiple genres, 15 of her songs have generated more than 1 million performances each. As a modern-day pioneer, she shattered glass ceilings for women and for all songwriters who refused to be stuffed into a category, and we at BMI couldn't be prouder of her accomplishments." (Del Bryant - BMI President and CEO) More at http://idocoach.com/kyefleming/
