    Hi all, just read this article from ASCAP.com.  Good recommendations from fellow songwriter, Anne-Kathrin Dern, for anyone that occasionally struggles to just 'get going' on writing that next song.  Hope this helps you.  Cheers.  AJ

    I'm interested in getting together with people OUTSIDE and socially distanced to sing and play music together on some kind of regular basis. I'm open to this looking many different ways, such as people workshopping and collaborating to play original songs, playing covers, playing a particular style of music for fun like swing or salsa, etc. I'm an amateur singer-songwriter who (barely) plays guitar and alto sax. I'd like to create an environment where all instruments and all skill levels are welcome. If you may be interested, or if you know of people playing music currently outside that I might join, I hope you'll reach out at j.gottlieb@yahoo.com

    Paradise Bill in Montgomery Co. has been rocking stages since 2014. We are in need of a vocalist to record and eventually sing new works. Paradise Bill has a sax and flute player and we have new material to record. After the pandemic recedes we will be preforming again. We have enough good new material for two albums. Most of it has never been performed due to lock down. WANTED female vocalist but, would consider a male. You can hear some new material at paradisebill.com

    If so, check out this 7-minute video based on a Christmas song I wrote last year, and recently turned into a children’s book… and if you like it, please consider picking up a copy or two…or 10 :-)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alv2LtMkS5g&t=5s

    OK, that concludes the shameless self-promotion part of this post.  Now to the offer:  If you’ve ever considered writing a children’s book, particularly if you’ve written any kid-friendly or kid-themed songs, I’d encourage you to do so.  The process was really interesting and quite a lot of fun.  I found an amazing illustrator on Fiverr who based the characters in the story on family photos I sent her.  As a result, what started out as simply a marketing effort to try to find an audience for some of my music turned into much more a labor of love.  I also learned a lot about the process… finding an affordable illustrator… managing the project along the way… indie publishing through Amazon KDP (like Tunecore or Distrokid, but for books)… formatting your submission for publication, etc.  I also learned a good bit about creating promotional videos or “book trailers.”  I used a fantastic, fairly cheap, and very intuitive video editor called Filmora 9, which I’ve been super happy with.  Anyhow, if you’re thinking about trying something similar (kids’  book or some basic video editing), and would like to talk to someone who’s done it, shoot me a note at thisislifesong@gmail.com.  The book's available on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0578792621?pf_rd_r=VT4JSGAZTCKEEJ3MD6AX&pf_rd_p=edaba0ee-c2fe-4124-9f5d-b31d6b1bfbee and there's merch & more at www.littlepinkkittychristmas.com.  And most of all, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    One of the ways that I direct my creative energies is to write songs that address the fight to end human trafficking and homelessness. It is my desire to organize musical concerts to raise funds to support local non profit groups such as Just Ask Prevention and NOVA HTI as well as Operation Underground Railroad and The Exodus Road.

    I am also interested in repairing old musical instruments (guitars, ukuleles, etc.), to give to victims so that they may have a musical outlet for healing. I like to co-write and would welcome other SAW members in organizing a concert to benefit these groups.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 1, 2019) - There are real iron men and women out there and Mark Henes is one of them. He is touring to promote his upcoming studio album release Crystallized Reflections. His newest single “Strip Me Down” will be released in the late summer of 2019. He has shows in the United States coming up; get tickets here: www.markhenes.com

    He will donate 10% of his earnings from this tour to the Iron Disorders Institute (www.irondisorders.org). This is a national non-profit organization dedicated to informing the public about iron disorders like hereditary hemochromatosis or iron overload.

    Giving blood can allow the body to move iron from organs that may not only save a life, but reduce the risk of other illnesses. Iron overload is a metabolic disorder that causes the body to store too much iron in the organs; specifically heart, liver and joints.This can cause diabetes, arthritis, heart failure, and other illnesses to occur prematurely.

    Please get in touch with Marilyn at contact@celebrationrecords.llc for interviews or promo materials and photos.
