Make 2021 the year you record a song!

I remember the first time I heard John Lennon’s Imagine.

Imagine there's no heaven

It's easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people living life in peace,

You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope some day you'll join us

And the world will be as one...

The song, its lyrics and music, the time in history when it came into the world, united us.

Rolling Stone described its lyrics as "22 lines of graceful, plain-spoken faith in the power of a world, united in purpose, to repair and change itself." That was 1971. Fast forward to now.

2020 has been a turbulent time. I believe that art and music can play an important role in reconnecting us.

I long to look through the “lens” of the painter’s eye to help me interpret the transitions we have experienced. I want to “hear” through the lyrics and music of the songwriter ways to process the emotion of this changing time.
