I attended a meeting at the San Diego Foundation that brought together the five Creative Catalyst Fellows for 2016. It was great to meet this diverse, interesting, adorable cadre of artists.

Amy Gerstler and I have come up with a few different song writing ‘techniques.’
The writing of a song might happen like this: We decide “a song could go here…” and one of us brings the other an idea, then that person takes it and runs a first draft (lyric first if it’s Amy, music first if it’s me), and then we start a sort of back and forth process. I love that process. Each collaboration with a writer is different. This is my first collaboration with Amy and I can’t say I’ve ever had an easier one.
