The IMPORTANCE of Songwriting

Bryan's goal is plain and simple: write great songs. Songs with emotion and lyrics that are evocative and meaningful. Songs that will stand the test of time. Songs that might just become classics.

Bryan has hosted 27 summer songwriting retreats at his amazing river's edge resort (  Mentors from the Berklee College of Music, hit songwriters from LA and Nashville, Grammy-winning songwriters and artists have all provided Bryan with world-class knowledge.  Think of it as a science lab for songwriting. Bryan studies and applies the songwriting techniques of the master songwriters like Lennon & McCartney, Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen.

If you are an up-and-coming artist, artist manager or tremendous vocalist, we would love to hear from you. Email Bryan and send him samples of your vocal performances.  Each summer, we select and sponsor one exceptional vocalist or up-and-coming artist for each of our retreats.
