The 300 Songs Project

In 2013, I started a journey to record 300 songs

During my PEACE time one morning, I got a clear nudge from the Divine: 300 songs (crazypants, I know, but it’s how “The Secret Watch” came to be). If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s to listen to the promptings and open the door when Divine opportunity knocks.

I’ve had some great friends join me in “the studio” for some of these tunes. Hopefully, there’ll be more to come as we journey through these tracks.

Here’s how you can help…

Get on my mailing list (and get a free song download, too!), check out a virtual show, and/or subscribe to my youtube channel. I post some of the rehearsal and concert sessions on the blog, so you can see what we’re working on. Then SHARE these songs with your friends! Becoming part of the community and showing your support is the best way to keep this project going!

101 songs in the can (so far)…
