Michael Smith, Songwriter – Sept & Oct E-News & Concerts


MICHAEL SMITH SCHEDULE

 

Play a chord and sing what your heart says…
All you have to have is the desire and you’ll get there.
And don’t worry about it…Good songs have been written by sixteen year olds. It’s not rocket science. You need to try a bunch of times…Don’t be so anxious about it and about other people’s approval. In essence, when you write something from your heart it has some kind of beauty.”
(
Thoughts on Songwriting, Michael Smith)

  1. Hi,
    I saw Michael in Tampa on Wednesday night in a private home. It was a really neat experience.
    If he ever wants to play in Georgia,(Atlanta) I would be most happy to host an event. Not sure how it works, but willing to try it.He told me to contact you…
    Thanks,
    Donna Creel
