Take a peek into my songwriting/recording process. This is my version of “how to write a song” Ah. There’s not really a specific process, it just kind of happens. It can happen in so many different ways. I hope this inspires you to write a tune! Would love to hear what you all have written! This was a little scary…but very rewarding. Please let me know if you would like more videos like these. I enjoyed putting this together. read more

?i? q?ayig?n // Good Feelings // Songwriting Workshop



This songwriting workshop was part of the “h?k? ?? ? tuwa? // Where do you come from?” project, developed in partnership between members of Klahoose First Nation, Tla’Amin First Nation, and the Cortes Island Museum & Archives as a way to witness and explore Canada 150 (150 years since Canada’s confederation). The event centered around an Indigenous history experiential activity, The Blanket Exercise, facilitated by Koosen Pielle (Tla’Amin First Nation), Brenda Hanson (Klahoose First Nation), Duane Hanson (Klahoose First Nation), and Zoe Ludski. Participants then worked with Drew Blaney (Tla’Amin First Nation) and the Eagle’s Beak Drummers (Matthew Louie, John Dominick, and Dion Harry) to create this song, ?i? q?ayig?n, a meditation on respecting each other, finding belonging, and responding with joy. read more
