Song Cuts

It is hard to explain, but a songwriter is born a songwriter. I grew up with my mother playing piano, a grandfather who sang as much as he could and brothers who were also musically inclined. I had 10 years of piano lessons and 5 years of violin lessons. I was supposed to go to college to major in music and become a concert pianist. That didn't happen!

‚ÄčI have found my people and my life's work as a songwriter after teaching college for 28 years. Songwriting is a passion, a movement of my soul that can't be described. Other songwriters know what I mean. The stories I try to weave as a songwriter are part truth, part fiction, part fact, part heart, part soul, and part from above. Sometimes the song writes itself, other times the song just wants to be a 20 pound baby waiting to be born!


I truly love my job as a songwriter. But I am more than a songwriter: I'm a Songpreneur! If you want to know what a Songpreneur is and what they do, just contact me.
