Q: "Is this some kind of religious thing?"
A: SingSpirit (positive words and music) is simply our record/publishing
company and our means to promote our own music. "Sing" and "Spirit"
weren't chosen totally at random when this name was created over a
decade ago. We try to be positive and uplifting with our music and with
how we live our lives. Our circle of friends include people from all
walks of life and all religions. We're interested in what we have in
common rather than spending time worrying about how we might be
Q: "Can I send you a demo CD of my songs (or my singing)?"
A: We can not accept unsolicited material. At this time, the projects
booked exceed our manpower, but we will be seeking both artists and
material in the future. Submissions will require approval in advance and
instructions on getting your package delivered safely.
Q: "What's your address?"
A: Our Nashville address will be offered to you if and when we authorize material to be sent.
Q: "I keep going to SingSpirit.COM out of habit. How do people remember to go to SingSpirit.NET!?"
A: SingSpirit.COM was taken right before we made our move. Our
acquaintance Robin Crow wrote a book called "Jump and the NET Will
Appear". That's what's helped us remember. We've also since purchased
the .com domain and redirected traffic, so you're covered.
Q: "Which royalty organization are you affiliated with?"
A: While ASCAP and SESAC are certainly fine organizations, we have
chosen BMI -- both as publishers and writers. We have a great
relationship with the Nashville office.
Q: "Do you do concerts and fundraisers?"
A: Absolutely. Sean and Laurie perform their original music and some old
favorites at all kinds of venues. See our "Performing Live" page. Sean
also enjoys doing speaking engagements.
Q: "I write songs (or music or lyrics/poems). Do you have advice on how I become a professional songwriter?"
A: Lots of it at this point, but too much to type here. If you live in
Nashville, take Barbara Cloyd's (BarbaraCloyd.com) "Ready for the Row"
seminar. Wherever you live, join NSAI (Nashville Songwriters
Association, International- www.NashvilleSongwriters.com). You may also
take our seminar simply called "Songwriting 101". It's offered all
over the country from time to time and it's often sponsored by Kawai
Q: "Where does space end?"
A: "Uuuuummmm..... " (blank stare)
