I mentioned meeting several songwriters last friday. How many of you Single of the Day readers remember?
I like to go to networking workshops like that. I tend to run into people I need to know, want to know, or already know and don’t speak to often enough. Aren’t we all like that? The only bummer to friday was the followup smack down I got yesterday. Alas, I’m feeling a bit better this morning and I’ll be heading to another networking mixer in a few minutes.
So I’m going to chat a little about a lovely songwriter I met friday. She comes from Holland and now resides in Los Angeles. I think I was sitting at the most boisterous table friday morning. Along came Femke. I don’t know if she was drawn to the table by the noise or the extra shade we created to stay out of the sun.
She’s very reserved. Quiet and observing. I find that that type of personality can be very powerful at ‘moving’ lyrics and songwriting. At least that’s my perspective. What you’re hearing is something from her demo. Despite being a demo, it’s very moving and you can hear the quality in her voice. There’s something there, waiting to be properly released or to explode.
I know that we’ve already spoken in terms of getting together to do some writing so it will be interesting to see what comes of that. In the meantime. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey.
