Community continued: Cowrites
I like to cowrite songs. It gets me out of my head— and often genre—and there's always something new to learn. I had an especially rewarding cowrite this year with songwriter friends Alex Walsh, Jacqui Naylor and Art Khu when our Buddhist district leader Lauranne Cox requested we write a song for a world peace gathering at the San Francisco Cultural Center. We started a year ago, and while the songwriting of "Community is Unity" was efficient, getting us all together in the same room at the same time, for the same purpose, on three different occasions took some doing. After a successful live debut of the tune last week, we now have a plan to record the result. Yes, the next two months are a lot about studio work!
