Back to the studio to listen to CD's from new artists interested in doing specific songs. I've got heavy singer/songwriter relationships going right now, although I remain uncertain why the universe is offering these opportunities up to me in such a concentrated dose!

Iris, (my super cool, and relatively unpaid, assistant), got A&R packages out to a bunch of labels late last week. Are the reps. watching CNN? or listening to Ultramagg, Sarah Sharp, Moses Guest, and Secret Agent 8? Maybe both at the same time would be the the best way to do it!

Finally, Jeff Skiba's music is being born as I write. Kevin Ryan is doing a killer job at what he calls, 'song building', and Jeff's songcraft skills are arcing along a steep learning curve quite nicely.
