Editor's Musings:

Hello for another month! It is now actually, OFFICIALLY Fall here - my favorite season of them all. Unfortunately, it's becoming shorter and shorter every year ... so my hope is that this year, we actually get to *enjoy* some Fall before Winter comes on (Ugh. snow. Bleh). I hope you're enjoying the weather where you are too! I know we have subscribers from all over the world. I just like to give you some insight into what's going on in my particular neck of the woods. ;)

Thank you to those of you who checked out my new CD! I really appreciate that. It's been getting some nice airplay on Women of Substance Radio lately, I'm happy to say. In fact, three of my covers are going to appear on the last ("Standards") show of "We've Got It Covered" (I believe that's in November - and I even do a little voice over imaging for the show!). Have a look at the site and the schedule and you'll hear a TON of great female singer/songwriters and performers. I've been hugely impressed with the show every time I've tuned in. :)

And that's about it for now. There's just one raffle winner this month (seriously guys - it's more of a QUEUE than a raffle. Just write to me and let me know what you're interested in, give me a city and state or country (if you're outside of North America) and it's all good. Detailed instructions below...)

DO YOU WANT TO WIN A RAFFLE PRIZE? You don't get if you don't ask!
If you'd like to be considered for a raffle prize yourself, have a look at the various prizes offered at the top of The Muse's News webpage, decide which prizes you'd most like, and email me with your top two choices along with your mailing address so that I can get the prizes to you. Yes, it's really that simple. :) (And yes, the mailing address is kinda important. I promise it won't be used for any other reason than to send you your raffle prize - and to mention your approximate location in the notice of raffle winners you see above here.)

I wish you every success and hope your dreams come true. :) (Dream big!)

All the best,

Great music is only a click away!
Here is a selection of the great artists and bands highlighted
in the Artist Spotlight section of The Muse's Muse.


Jamie Green - Genre: SINGER/SONGWRITER

With the lyrical honesty of Alanis Morissette, the soulful vocals and intricate harmonies of Jonatha Brooke and Paula Cole, and a production style that is at once contemporary and classic, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, Jamie Green, forges her own brand of alternative pop that leaves your heart moved and your body moving. She is two-for-two, winning L.A. Music Awards for her debut and sophomore albums, and is currently working on her third which, production-wise, is heavily influenced by Dido and Seal.

Songwriting Book Review by John Thomas

Healthy Creative Lifestyles for Artists
by Ben Cooper

If you’ve been in the creative “game” for any amount of time, you have probably felt the need for encouragement and questioned how long that you can keep this up. I know that I have.

When this happens, it’s nice to find some encouragement, but, maybe, it is better to prepare yourself and your life for those inevitable lows before they hit you.

This seems to be the purpose for which Ben Cooper’s Udemy course, “Healthy Creative Lifestyles for Artists,” is intended.

Let’s be upfront: If you’ve read books like The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron (which is referenced in this course, by the way) you may find some overlap with material that you have read before. However, one of the things that I particularly liked about this course is that, unlike Cameron, who is a writer of books, Cooper is a fellow songwriter who works with people like Gordon Kennedy (one of the three co-writers of the Eric Clapton Grammy-winning hit, “Change the World”) in Nashville. This means his stories and his recommendations are coming from that songwriter perspective, making it easier and more straightforward in applying them in my life and work.

What does he cover? I’m glad you asked. Cooper covers issues such as

 Why you write
 Keeping success (and failure) in perspective
 How to work with others in co-writing situations
 Giving and taking feedback
 Healthy mindsets for artists
 Association and your personal circle of fellow artists
 The physical space in which you write, and
 Writing rituals or getting yourself ready to write

Cooper gives you about two hours’ worth of lecture time, primarily via video, and he keeps it to the point (while avoiding being a drill sergeant). I found several nuggets worth my time to consider and implement in my process of molding my lifestyle to support my creativity.

So, grab a cup of coffee, sit down with your tablet or laptop, and give it a watch.

Welcome to The Global Songwriting Contest, an annual international competition for musicians of all ages.

With an entry fee of only $25.00 per song, it is also the most affordable of its kind. GSC is open to amateur and professional songwriters of all ages around the globe. Realizing that the music business is very difficult to break into, our prizes are cash awards. The First prize is $10,000.00.

Our song contest will be ongoing; as soon as one ends we start another. Because entries are limited per contest, we expect to have several rounds of competitions per year, therefore awarding thousands of dollars to winners. Entries will be judged on originality, composition, melody, and lyrics (when applicable). Your songs may be entered in 12 of our categories.

A maximum of 20 songwriters will gather again on the beautiful Aran island of Inisheer, County Galway, for a week of 'Community Through Co-Writing' - with writers signed up thus far from Canada, Denmark, Germany, Portugal and Sweden. Particpants will co-write with a new partner daily, exploring varied approached to the writing process meant to expand their craft - with a focus on 'tools, not rules'.

Over 1000 songwriters from more than 20 countries have participated in Listening Rooms since 2002, from established pros seeking new inspiration to those just starting out - with numerous participants going on to tour, record and release songs in several countries as a direct result of the relationships established in these special weeks.

The Ireland week is priced at 875 Euros ($975. at current exchange rates), inclusive of workshops, housing, meals, two concerts and local transport to and from the island via Galway. Additional savings are possible through the Retreat Referral Program, where writers who successfully encourage new participants to attend receive an additional 75€. off the event price, and monthly, interest free payments are also available in order to help make participation a reality.

Further information is available at or by writing directly to retreats founder/leader Brett Perkins:

and Sometimes They Find You

It’s odd sometimes.  You can wander and search, search and wander, with no direction home (sorry Bob) and the very thing you’re looking  suddenly looms into view without any effort on your part.  The latest series of websites and links came to my attention in that way.  To be honest I’m not sure if I went out looking for the idea or if it was looking for me.  Anyway I came across this site a few weeks ago and finally have had a chance to dig into it a little.  It’s The European House Concert Hub.

At last count there were:

  • 476 members
  • 5905 photographs
  • 3777 songs
  • 1366 videos
  • 72 discussions
  • 1106 events
  • 1169 blog posts

and it features Rob Ellen’s Medicine Show, a network of artists and hosts, platforms for spreading and promoting music and and and… Well, maybe it’s better to let Rob tell you directly.

There’s no need to be concerned with the word ‘Europe’ in the title.  The organisation appears world wide and there are a number North American artists using the site to organise trips and tours for themselves.  However, if you’d like to explore opportunities closer to home there is a North American based site.  Hosts can join for free but there is a subscription fee for artists.  If you’d like some general detail of the concept there’s a blog post here that can begin to fill you in.

And of course no recent discovery would be complete without some negative waves.  So, before heading off towards the new nirvana here’s an article on a few things that merit a pause for thought.  As with everything in life it’s never a bad idea to think first and then make your mistakes but if, unlike me, you’d like to avoid making mistakes here’s a short testimonial from Shannon Curtis with a link toward much deeper information.

Finally, just in case anyone from Australia is reading this there’s a site for house concerts there as well.

There it is for this month.  Very short and sweet but plenty of links for you to dig into the concept should it spark you interest.  Personally I find the idea truly inspiring and a great way to connect with the rest of the world and it’s for that reason I’m going to stop yakking and start probing.  Ta ta for now.


Richard Miller is a caterpillar who has begun his chrysalis phase. Originally from Maine, Richard has, via a series of mis-adventures and accidents, worked as an accountant in the English Midlands, a systems programmer on the South Coast of England (where he also pursued an illustrious career in rugby) and a statistical programmer in Belgium. Now he has put all that aside, bought a house, stripped it back to the brick and started to renovate it from top to bottom while simultaneously transforming himself from a results oriented automaton into a winged song writer.

Featured Article - By Brad Dunse

QUICK TIP: Song, Meet my Audience... Audience, Meet my Song

I wonder if any of you fellow songwriters are like me.

I meet someone for the first time, shake their hand, enter into the usual short chit-chat, and walk away asking myself or a friend…

What was that person’s name? Who was that again?

I’m absolutely atrocious at remembering names from an introduction.  The songwriter in me is too far gone wondering things like…

Why did that handshake just feel like a huge soggy piece of linguine?

Hmm. What cologne have we got going here?

What are we talking about that has their nervous keys jingling in their pocket like wind chimes in tornado alley.

Is there any significance of the second and third ring on that one finger?

Just how much does an insurance statistician make anyhow? And what sort of interesting dinner conversations can possibly be extracted from a day’s work in that field.

I mean no disrespect if you are reading this after a good day at the numbers. You probably can’t imagine yourself a freelance writer either, so we’re even, right?

Anyway, by the time the intro is over, I’m left clueless about their name and any other labels or incidentals which have nothing to do with who that person really is inside.

I have to really work at my introductions, stay on point, and not get side-tracked.

And, since this is a songwriting article, you know what I’m about to say, right?

Yeah, we can’t get carried away with our song intros. If we do? We’ll have our listeners doing the same danged thing I do when meeting someone. Doing everything but paying attention and engaging the moment.

And, we have a special guest to help show us about intros this month.

Ladies and gentlemen, Adele!

Okay, she’s not really here sitting next to me at the writing desk, but I put together a short sampling of some songs from her 21 album.

Before we have a quick listen, I will make the point there’s nothing inherently wrong with the last two songs in the little medley, but as songwriters with our own opinions, I might have chosen to shorten them up.

They aren’t show stoppers, obviously; and I’m not the Grammy winner here, but I think the intros to these songs will show the point.

One last note. Commercially, there is a general rule of keeping intros under 14-seconds. The sooner you can get to the song, the better. Whether you are writing commercially or not, it is a good rule to adopt in your writing.

You’ll notice the first one on the medley; Adele jumps in before any music. Anytime you can keep your listener from having his or her mind wandering around the room instead of what you are about to say is a good thing.

Without further ado? Here’s Adele to make our point.

Click here for the short medley, and then make your way back here and we’ll wrap up.

Okay. Did you feel the difference in the last two songs?

Did you expect things to come in sooner?

Did you feel your mind wander a bit… waiting?

Listen to them again and see where you naturally feel where the vocals should come in. You might even feel snipping off the front end of an intro might achieve a better intro.

Again, they aren’t show stoppers, but if you were sitting in a coffeehouse or wine bar with a guitar or piano, you might get some eyes wandering and fingers dinging the wine glass on the table in anticipation.

If you couldn’t play the above link for whatever reason, the songs used by Adele were: Take It All, Rolling in the Deep, Set Fire to the Rain, I Found a Boy, I’ll Be Waiting, and He Won’t Go. Find them up on YouTube and have a listen there.

If you’ve got recordings of your songs, find out when your vocals come in.

If you don’t have a recording, get someone to time you playing live, and find out how long your intros are. Try to keep them under 14-seconds. When you think of it, out of a 3-minute song, that’s a lot of time dedicated to it.

Until next time…

Keep writing from the heart!

How To Leave Your Day Job & Teach Guitar for A Living In The Least Risky Manner Possible - by Tom Hess
