Essence of Songwriting

The song is everything. While my A&R and staff songwriter, David Harper and I were shooting a songwriting video segment for our newly launched website, veteran songwriter Jeff Pearson stopped by right in the middle of taping. I was so excited to see my good friend after a couple of years of him leaving Nashville to move to Georgia. I’m so thrilled that Jeff Pearson has moved back to Nashville and is once again on board as one of our regular staff writers.

We pulled Jeff into our video to share with you his thoughts on the importance of songwriting in the music industry.  With over fifteen years of hosting the writer’s night at the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee, Jeff Pearson has been highly involved in the songwriting arena.  Jeff has taught countless classes on the craft of songwriting and has helped so many songwriters learn about the do’s and the don’ts that make a hit song. He has been a writer for Phil Collins’ publishing company in Los Angeles, California, as well as being published by several large Nashville companies. We’d like to invite you to view this uncut, unrehearsed video segment.

From Past to Present — God Bless America!

Cathy Lemmon, president of the Artist Development Network in Nashville, TN congratulates songwriter Gustavo Perales for writing this beautiful and powerful song, “FROM PAST TO PRESENT”. The song is in honor of all our men and women from around the country who sacrifice their lives on a daily basis, to protect and defend our great United States of America.

Keep America Alive

Our country depends on YOUR vote. We need to protect and uphold our Constitution, our liberty, rights, freedoms, to Keep GOD as the center of our lives, to keep our country strong and independent, and uphold our values! My good friend Cari Lynn York wrote this powerful new song with co-writers Jennifer Leslie Ferguson and Karen Rae Mitchell called KEEP AMERICA ALIVE. Cari Lynn recorded it last week. I hope you enjoy it! And let’s each do our part to keep America alive!
