Got to spend the day writing a song with a group of talented writers for an organization called “Oneness”. It was kinda weird as I felt like the odd-boy-out. Everyone there had amazing credentials or were signed on major labels. Then there’s little ol’ me feeling like I got sent to boot camp. It felt good to be welcomed into the fold of 50 songwriters that have written numerous songs that you’ve likely heard. It felt even better to come highly recommended to the group.
I was paired up with a couple of hit lyrisists. Which when it comes down to it, was a bit strange. I was the musical force in the room and sort of mediated between two people very passionate about words, who also looked for input from me as to what to say. The song we wrote is called “in Disguise”. The subject matter has to do with breaking down barriers between people. And the end of the day, all the writers groups were put on stage to perform the music they had just written. Let me tell you, it was pretty amazing to hear what some of those groups came up with. Every song was really good, but there were a couple that flat out killed. The concept behind “Oneness” is for musicians to use the power of music to write something positive to help heal the world. I will certainly attend again next year.
When I get the demo of “In Disguise” done, I’ll post a two minute clip here.
