Think globally, rock locally
I forward this from The Texas Musicians Museum without comment...if you're going to act, act quickly. --Ryan Michael Galloway
We were contacted by Stephen Williams of a HUGE issue of misrepresentation by the Texas Music Office to literally put museums like us OUT OF BUSINESS! Please read the letter Stephen forwarded to me and help us oppose this unfair bill that again takes care of Austin, but does nothing but hurt all of the other cities in Texas's heritage and music…Continue

You know I don't blog much, if at all. My reasoning, nothing is worth talking about, that has changed.
My hope is to convince everyone from the great efforts of some in the CCSA, we have secured a permanent spot. A place for the open mics under starry skies, plays and concerts that you as members of the CCSA may be a part of, this is an exciting time for the events that will be available to its members.
If you are interested in production come join our…Continue

We had a good time tonight at the Song Circle, many excellent songs. I got some excellent input on a new song that I just wrote called "Adding up Yesterdays. Thanks everyone for your feedback. If you haven't come to a circle and you are a songwriter, you miss something. Don't miss out next time, try it once, you'll be sold! My thanks to Ryan Michael Galloway for his teaching. I learned some things tonight..
I use Lonestar any time I'm buying new so I got that covered, except I can't buy everything new because cymbals are expensive!!
Does anyone know of anywhere to cheap cymbals other that Craigslist?!

Some members have expressed interest in having an election. There will be a meeting to discuss it soon I'm sure. If anyone else supports this please post a blog here.
The Collin County Songwriters are fading into oblivion.
It is time to do something to generate some interest,
and maybe stimulate some songwriting.
Is anyone interested in becoming our new leader?
Let’s have an election soon. Anyone?
Just thought I'd introduce myself a little and what I'm going for. My name is Steve, I'm 21 and currently looking for a group. I've been writing a lot of my own material lately, so my goal is to start a band based on that type of music rather than join an already existing band (unless of course, the styles are similar). I'm more acoustic-based, but I'd like to back that up with a drummer, bassist, electric guitarist, and possibly a keyboard player. I'd love to get some killer harmonies into…Continue

There are so many "closet" folk musicians around and you can find them everywhere, and every community should have one. Last year two ladies, Judi Altstatt and Jeanne Fisher created the Allen Folk Music Society in Allen, Texas. This year, they're branching out to help establish a place for all these quiet folk musicians in the Allen Community and beyond to meet, share coffee, and hear/or play Folk, Old Timey, Celtic, Irish, Bluegrass, and pop music, as well as a place for storytelling, and…Continue

I wish to discuss something that seems lost in our reasons for writing, performing, recording songs. The art form itself, the seed that grows inside each cranium in this membership. Why are we songwriters? Is it that we have dillusions of grandeur, complete with our marriage to a super model and cars that have their own zip codes? Most experienced songwriters will say that although money is the yardstick to success it is a poor substitute for true satisfaction... For the…Continue
