What instrument(s) do you use to write your music?

Taylor and Martin guitar

What comes easier for you - words or music?

Not sure either is easier. Sometimes is comes all at once, most times, I have to really work at it. With some newer songs, Jim plays around with chord progressions and I find a melody and then add lyrics. I have no formula.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

I'd be flattered beyond belief if someone else wanted to cover my song(s).

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

Most of my songs I've written on my own, however in the last year, my husband Jim, a fine musician and excellent bass player has collaborated with me on chord progressions and arrangements. Most times, what works best for me is to have a quiet space and be alone when I work on songs.

What areas of your music experience are you wanting to improve? e.g. songwriting, marketing, networking, recording, airplay, gigs, etc.

I love all styles of music. Began writing songs & playing guitar about 6 years ago-humbled & amazed by the wonderful musicians, singer/songwriters in this group. Great to be a part of it! Music lifts our souls and makes this world a better place.
