I recently had the chance to attend the Pacific Northwest Songwriters Summit put on by The Recording Academy (the Grammy organization) at the EMP in Seattle. The speakers (like Sir Mix-A-Lot in the photo above) were excellent and there were informative workshops about both the creative and business sides of the music industry. It was also great to meet and socialize with fellow songwriters.
In addition to the previously mentioned social media sites, I now have a page on the new, music-centered Myspace and a bio on MTV.com! They’re both brand new, but I’m slowly adding content to all of my social media pages (and this website), so if you’re a member of Facebook, Myspace, Twitter or YouTube, please be sure to check out my pages — and please “LIKE” or link to them!
Welcome to the new website… It is a work in progress, so check back often! In the meantime, please enjoy the latest video. It is an a cappella arrangement of three of Lauris Reiniks’ songs: Es Skrienu, Banjo Laura and Pasakā. Enjoy!
