SAC Songwriting & Blogging Challenge 2013

KatLeonard-blue-PhotoRodPizarroI signed up for another SAC (Songwriters Association of Canada) blogging challenge!  This time we are taking Pat Pattison’s 6-week online songwriting course through Berklee College of Music.  Our first blog should answer these questions:
1) Where are you in your songwriting journey?  Who me?  I am Kat Leonard and I consider myself a bit of a hack songwriter because my songwriting process in the past has been to open up that great channel to the universe and let the song enter me from beyond while I eat a bag of  chips.  I’ve been songwriting for a little over 5 years.  I sometimes write songs that will be entwined with monologue or standup material into a fuller show with a theme or storyline.  My greatest hit to date is Jockstrap, where I proclaim my unwavering desire to be Johnny Depp’s Jockstrap.  That song came easily.   2) What do you hope to gain from this challenge? In addition to growing alongside an inspiring and nurturing community of artists within SAC and Berklee, I hope to gain valuable songwriting theory and tools so that I develop a solid foundation of skills with which to create effective music.  So here we go!  Stay tuned for scintillating details of the progress!
