Since last writing, I was a featured guest performer at America's leading Songwriting Conference 'TAXI', in Los Angeles. It was amazing to meet so many talented up and coming songwriters like myself at the conference, many of whom are struggling with similar industry issues, while also enjoying all the benefits that D.I.Y. technology now offers independent artists like myself. I'm really pleased to say that since attending the conference, and as a result of my performance at the event, I have received commissioned work as a songwriting collaborator, melody composer and session vocalist.
At the moment I'm really enjoying the balance between working on my own original material, and also working with other talented songwriters. Some of my most recent work has included setting poems to music, collaborating with other lyricists, and composing vocal melodies to existing lyrics and/or instrumental tracks. I'm actually in the process of setting up a new review page where clients will be able to write reviews for the work that I have done for them and also showcase the work that we have collaborated on together. I find this all very exciting! ... As most of you already know, I moved back to lovely London in the new year, and I can honestly say that its great to be home in the UK.
Wishing you all health and happiness!
