Songwriting is an important form of communication. The act of writing and performing songs connects us to a tradition that takes us back to the earliest days of our collective experience. Even in a time of 24/7 access, constant visual stimulation and minimal attention span people yearn for the experience of getting together and hearing other people's stories and sharing their own. The popularity of open mics and the sheer amount of people playing and performing original music has transformed the way music is shared and heard. Recording technology has evolved to the point where everyone can record and distribute their songs and stories. I launched this website to allow me to communicate information about myself but also to celebrate all of us who are sharing through our songs and stories, Pieces Of Our Souls.
