    Songwriting is foundational to who I am and what I do. If you are writing songs, I am interested in your work and would be delighted to hear your songs, read the lyrics and talk with you about them!

    While we are on the subject of coffee (the Songwriter’s Lounge tag line is “the coffee is over there”), where I come from, we have a very informal weekly music community coffee meetup, at a coffee shop, just to hang and talk about the music community, the music business, gigs, how to do promotion, etc. Are any of us interested in that kind of thing here in Pittsfield and the Berkshires?

    Sounds like a great idea to have an informal weekly music meet-up. I am in Housatonic and would prefer meeting in South County…

    In Great Barrington there is a thriving informal Wednesday choral group where participants collaborate in the further enhancement of songs many unknown could have written. Why don’t songwriters do that for each other except at an echelon that otherwise might not be so elite? In the trenches it’s the one who got five gigs last year (that could’ve been 20) calling the shots for the one that got two (that could’ve been 10). Joined and settling for a split of 15 they’d do so much better if the songs measure up. I’m with “ss” 1000% on this. Alan, I post by best-arranged work on Vimeo. It’s kinda 60s-70s but we’ve all done worse! Anyway, the lyrics are posted in most of the song notes. https://vimeo.com/strummingbird10
