From the author:
In all my years of being a songwriter, I have spent countless hours drawing other folks into the circle, getting them to open up and look at their own journeys, teaching them the value of letting others in, of allowing feedback and constructive criticism to help them grow.... without the interaction of outsiders, we would never experience chaos. And chaos promotes change and growth. It is essential to the community... We all have tribes - family, close friends, associates, people who think like we do. But a tribe cannot be exclusive. It has to attract and deal with outsiders on a regular basis. And it's those very same outsiders that change us... This book was my drawing together of the tribe, the tribe of songwriters. I wanted to include them in the conversations I've had in my head for years. I wanted to find out what made them desire to be songwriters. And I am so grateful that they answered the call. It's important for us to hear what others are doing, how they deal with the very same issues we all face...

Fearing, Mae Moore, David Essig and many more, in a unique book that is truly the first of its kind. Jane Eamon resides in Kelowna, British Columbia, and divides her free time between book-signing events and live concerts. Visit her at Manor House: www.manor-house.biz
