Music was never intended to be
something that we passively listen to.
Music is a universal language that everyone on the planet – you, me, and… yes, everyone – on some level understands.
But most people do not have a consistent, vibrant, intimate relationship to music as a vital element in our daily experience of life.
For the most part, music is something that “musicians” do, while the rest of us passively enjoy – or dislike – the recorded musical sounds that we consume.
This is tragic, for humans from the beginning of time have played, sang, and danced together, singing the songs and telling the stories of our people, places, and gods.
Without this primal, ancient relationship, our lives have become pale representations of what human aliveness can be.
SongJourneys exist for the purpose of reviving the music that lives, breathes, dances and sings in your being.
We do this through the dynamic process of writing songs.
But not just any songs.
We collaborate on songs that speak to the truth of who you are.
Songs that tell stories of your life, your love, your desire, your ambition.
Songs that cast your challenges in the light of your ultimate victory over them.
Songs that call forth the imminent greatness that yearns to burst forth from within you.
The journey we embark upon as we set out to create a song together is a journey of self-realization.
It is a journey of identifying, claiming, yearning for, and acting to fulfill the most important desires that drive you.
It is a journey of harnessing your joy, making a practice of celebration, and activating the essence of you that wants to SING.
The journey begins with a seed. A SongSeed, to be exact – a musical idea that holds the potential of a mighty ballad or epic anthem.
Of course, SongSeeds also sprout and grow to be wistful lullabies, driving rockers, funky dancehall jigs, or a host of other forms.
But it all starts with the SongSeed Session – a 30-minute jam session during which we mine the rich fabric of your life and form a seed.
The SongSeed Session all by itself is a musical shot of adrenaline; a lyrical, melodical nutritional supplement for your soul.
It’s a high intensity interval workout for your heart-open muscle – without the sweat and bruises and achy hamstrings.
And when it’s over, you have the precious beginnings of an opportunity to grow your life through the power of song.
What you do with it beyond our time together is up to you; you can chalk it up to an interesting experience . . .
Or you can choose to embark upon a journey wherein we plant, nourish, water, and grow your seed.
Either way, your SongSeed is yours to sing forever, as is the refreshment of our time together.
The SongSeed Session is my gift to those who seek it; an offering given freely and humbly.
The gratitude I experience in the privilege of doing this work serves as my compensation.
