founder, blue crush music
When I was 17, I organized and hosted two concerts in my home town of Sioux Falls, South Dakota that attracted over a thousand people. I recruited and signed the bands, created the posters and radio ads, rented the concert halls and managed to not lose any money.
Fast forward a few decades, and I organized and managed a Willie Nelson concert in Silver Springs, Florida with only 5 weeks to promote and make successful (Willie cancelled a show at Sea World and we jumped on the chance to bring him to Silver Springs). The concert was profitable despite the short timeline.
Passionate about music and songwriting, I began to organize and host songwriting retreats at my adventure & yoga resort that I was developing in the wilderness of British Columbia. I have since hosted 27 retreats and workshops, working with many of the best songwriting mentors in the world.
My songwriting process varies considerably, but I am known for evocative lyrics and compelling melodies. My song output is more about quality than quantity. I have written songs that fall into many genres, including pop, indie rock, alternative, country, rap, hip hop, adult contemporary and classical cross-over.
My collaboration with Bo Henrik began in 2017. We now have 28 songs that cross genres: pop, Adult AC and alternative R & B. We are working with producers and audio engineers in Canada, USA and Sweden.
