Songwriting Workshop with Dan Hill

I had the opportunity to meet Dan Hill at a songwriting workshop in 2010. He was very generous with his knowledge and time. 

Dan Hill has had a long and impressive career. He had a few big hits in the 1970's and 1980's, and switched to writing songs for other people since the late 1990's. He has a lot of perspective on the music business. It was so great to meet him and to be able to work with him.  

Rock singer/songwriter Jon Mullane advised us on working ideas into songs from a more commercial approach (as in, radio play). Jon also gave us great tips on networking and marketing.

Jimmy Rankin Sings Happy Birthday

A very special birthday moment: Jimmy Rankin sang to me at the Department of National Defence Family Day in Halifax. Totally made my day.
