“I've been richly impacted by the times I've received direct feedback from Christa when I've set up songwriting critiques with her. It has been clear to me that she approaches my songs with fresh eyes, respect for my work, a sincere listening ear, and yet carrying with her the unique blend of experiences and musical insights that have truly helped to shape and make my songs better.” - Tawnya Smith, Wisconsin
“Christa’s mentoring gave me a boost to continue writing, set up a house concert, and edit a song for release on streaming services. Her advice has been invaluable to my creative process. Now when I write, I think with a bigger frame work that she has helped to shape.” - Laura Kennedy, Utah
Aspiring songwriter? Artist...and...something else? Trying to figure it out?
I LOVE to talk songwriting, process, and art-life, so if you could use a little help with a particular song or project, or just making progress in general, I’d love to help if I can.
