There is a song you have not written yet that people need to hear.

Inspiration can come from the most random places.

About a year ago Kristi and I were shopping for a truck. We were talking with the salesman while they were processing our paperwork. When he found out I was a songwriter, he promptly wrote these words on the back of his business card and handed it to me.

"There is a song you have not written yet that people need to hear."

I look at this everyday as a reminder that there is a song in me that people need to hear. I'm not sure what prompted this man to write these words for me, but I'm glad he did.

So never forget that even though songwriting is a business, it all starts with you writing a song. Write it, sing it and play it. In that order.

Have a beautiful day,


My favorite Songwriter Joel Shewmake

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
