Thanks so much for responding! I've actually been writing for a long time. I've played at many open mics and even some paying gigs. I actually played a benefit venue st the St. Lawrence arts center in portland. Do you know that place? Ive always told by friends and family that I should do something with my songs. Deep down, playing music is my dream. But even starting out writing or providing one of my songs for another artist would be amazing. I just don't know a safe venue to do that ya know?

I played the first ever benefit for the St Lawrence about 25 years ago. All the artists I know write their own songs. Getting someone to record your song is like winning the lottery. Do what you love: write, play. Good things will come.
