Songwriting Works™ - "Life's a Song CD & More - Be Part of It!" : the vision

Thanks to all who supported our successful Kickstarter Campaign.
"Life's a Song" is in the final phases of production!
LIFE's a SONG is a CD recording that will celebrate creativity across generations.

12 original songs of love and laughter, adventure and home, loss and triumph were composed in 8 Olympic Peninsula communities with 7 professional musicians and 200 Washingtonians, most age 60+ between 2007-2012. Locations included care facilities, community hangouts, and SW's HQ. Read about the forthcoming CD.
