How Did You Find The Kitchen?
on: September 09, 2018, 03:46:20
In celebration of the 5th anniversary of the "Songwriters in the Kitchen" forum maybe people would like to reflect on how they came across this nice little corner of the internet?  :)  :)  Maybe you have an interesting story to tell?   :)

So, my question is:

1. How did you find the kitchen?  Or, when did you first come across this forum?

2. How, when or why did you join?
Songwriter, Keyboards, Arranger, Producer & Engineer for November Sound

November Sound is based on the Mother, Father & Son musical trio of Melissa, Bill & Will. I'm the father so anything I post will have my wife singing and/or my son playing percussion.

A great question @Bill from November Sound

I've just checked and I joined on June 16th, 2017, so it's over a year now.

I think I was generally browsing and I came across the forum almost by chance. I did a bit of non-member lurking for a few days as I was quite nervous about joining an established forum. I'm glad I did as it's been a revelation to be introduced to the breadth of music and people who come on here. 

In my original post I said ... "I'm hoping I can put in as much as I get out of this forum.  It tends to be my style."

I think I've achieved that despite never entering one of the famous Kitchen competitions challenges yet. Members on here have been very supportive of my work and I hope I have been for them.  I have learnt so much and been exposed to music I might never have listened to, so it really has opened my ears. The Kitchen is a sounding-board, music library and songwriting club all rolled into one ;-) 

Thanks everybody and it's nice having a place where people understand our peculiar obsession with home-grown music.

I was browsing the songwriting section of another forum.....looking for homegrown music.....and I stumbled upon an excellent tune from @tuff bransch  .  In his post he mentioned The Kitchen. I am very glad that he did.

Back in the days of myspace I enjoyed finding music in different styles from different countries. That was big fun. Unfortunately Myspace was sold to youknowwho... so then I started looking for soundcloud. Tat was brilliant - specially as an early bird, so much nice folks there to meet and truely odd music to discover.
Soundcloud used to have a strong tool for community building called "Groups" but unfortunately they couldn't scale that particular function - it was swamped with trolls, pirates and other bad intentions, - so to the dismay of many, Soundcloud axed 'groups'.
Then I started looking - and found the kitchen forum.

For those interested in the history of music sharing platforms: here an article from 2013

and 2016
