Every so often a really cool project comes my way. When the Wildflower Festival needed someone to write bios for the ten finalists in their singer-songwriter contest, a friend recommended me. I hit it off with the content coordinator, and the rest is history.
I had the distinct pleasure of getting to interview these artists, some by phone and some via email. I even got to meet one of them and hear her in concert! Writing about their lives, their art, and their passion was an honor. Thank you, Angela, Annalise, Cherie, Crystal, Lola, Brad, Frank, George, John, and Richard for taking the time to share your passion for singing and songwriting with me!
