Have you ever wondered where the inspiration to write a song comes from? Have you ever thought to yourself “I can do that!” but weren't sure how or where to start? If you’ve ever tried songwriting you know how difficult it can be to make sure that everything fits together like a puzzle. Jen will share how and where her inspiration comes from and what has made her music career so successful when others fail.
How to write a song. It's important to write lyrics that are true to you, but that also connect with the listener. Music is universal because we all have similar experiences, but not all of us know how to express those feelings. That's why songwriters are so important. They trigger emotions through words and melodies. Ever wanted to write a song? Well, I'll give you some tips that I use when I write. Even, if you wanted to write a poem to someone, but did'nt know how. I'll share my expertise and

Lisa King has completed her debut album The Language of Birds. She calls her group The Hot Place. “A patrolman apprehended the boxer Jack Johnson for speeding through his little town. He fined him $100 on the spot. Jack said, “Here’s a $100 for now and another $100 for later, because when I come back through, I’ll be driving just as fast.” The cop said, “Boy, if you keep acting like that, you’re gonna’ go straight to the Hot Place.” I thought, now that is rock and roll, and that’s what I’m going to name my band.” – Lisa King
Lisa wrote all of the songs on The Language of Birds. Although inseparable from her Mosrite bass guitar, she also played a roster of instruments, some raised from a steamer trunk of vintage guitars and analog synthesizers; others sprang from her wild antique menagerie like the 1920s Marxophone and the calliope-sounding Portatiev.
Lisa may have begun The Language of Birds by herself, but she hopes it feels more like a band called The Hot Place. She co-produced the album with The Swimming Pool Q’s’ Jeff Calder, who also played guitar and contributed his multi-instrumental diversity within the album. The Q’s Robert Schmid played drums. Southern Tracks’ Steven Morrison mixed most of the songs and performed on piano, 12-string and vibes. Mike Lynn, formerly of Betty’s Not A Vitamin, was a contributing guitarist, as well. Lisa King has a degree in Fine Arts from Georgia State University, specializing in cutting-edge printmaking disciplines like non-toxic etching and lithography. She’s been a member of the Atlanta bands Unminded and Threshold, and she’s played keyboards with The Swimming Pool Q’s and Glenn Phillips of the Hampton Grease Band.
Deardra Shuler interviews singer Rachel Brown, an Ethiopian/Bermudian with southern roots, whose voice reveals a sultriness and sweetness that has captivated listeners. A musician who plays the guitar and ukulele, Rachel embodies with her African/Caribbean band, the genres of pop, Caribbean, Hawaiian, country, hip-hop and world sounds into a captivating groove.
At 19, with no formal musical training, Brown found her voice organically. “My songwriting process consists of grabbing my guitar and learning how to play it while I write songs,” says Brown. “I just play until it sounds right.”
Brown was the 2010 recipient of the prestigious ASCAP Foundation Robert Allen Award for songwriting as well as a 2011 recipient of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Abe Olman Award for Excellence in Songwriting. She also received a very coveted showcase slot at the National Association for Campus Activities’ national convention, leading to a 40 date college tour.
The Harvard graduate has been featured by the New York Post and PerezHilton.com and has opened for the likes of Mary J. Blige and Robin Thicke at Bermuda’s National Stadium, and John Legend and Quincy Jones at the Bermuda Music Festival.
Brown’s music also caught the ear of Wyclef Jean who brought her up on stage to perform an impromptu duet of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” at a fundraiser held at New York’s legendary Cipriani 42 Street. Recently Jean joined Brown onstage at her residency at NYC’s famed supper club, The Darby.
Be sure to catch Brown’s debut EP “Building Castles” which is available now.
