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

Guitar and singing! I play a little computer too; Pro Tools.

What comes easier for you - words or music?

Well, I've got a degree in creative writing from the UW, so my songs are heavily lyric-oriented. That said; I'm not a 3-chord strummer: I through-compose my songs. I'd say there's a balance there, and it depends on the song.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

Currently, both. I love to collaborate, and am doing it more and more.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

I would love to work with other songwriters, either steadily or as-needed. I see no need to limit myself in either direction.

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

I'm a dedicated songwriter here in U-Dist! My work is a mix of Springsteen, Ben Folds, and Neil Young. I put a lot of time into the craft, and intend to pursue songwriting as a career. Looking for someone to help with production/orchestra­tion.

What Alden W. is saying about this Meetup Group

Really great group of people. It's nice to meet some people who treat songwriting professionally. I agree with John; it'd be good to get a little down and dirty with some constructive criticism.
