Hi from Sydney - Thorn River Writers
on: April 25, 2017, 03:09:51
Hi everyone, long time listener, first time caller.
I love what i see on these boards with the productive feedback and encouragement. No one has to write a song, no one has to listen, and no one has to like what you write. So when 'strangers' take the time to listen it's huge and keeps you going.
I've been writing for 20+ years and was in bands in the 90s/00s that no one has ever heard of. For the last 5 years or so i've been half of the Thorn River Writers, a friend and I co-write country/folk/pop songs and record demos. Prior to that I did my own singer-songwriter stuff, and dabbled in some spontaneous writing/recording with Mr Eddy.
We are based in Sydney/Australia, look forward to continuing to give and get feedback!

Hey James.......I have been listening to your songs as well as a few from the entire collaborative and it sounds great. You will bring a bit of a new perspective to what is already an amazing group of songwriters.
