Modern Explorer - Episode 2 - Gordy Quist

Posted: October 14th, 2014. 0 Comments.

In this second episode of the podcast, I talk with Gordy Quist, an Austin, Texas-based songwriter and a member of The Band of Heathens. Over the years, Gordy and I have traded ideas for tricking ourselves into being more productive as songwriters, and in this episode, we compare notes on recent efforts and play a couple of brand new songs: "Out on Each Other" and "More Like September." We also talk about our next Songfarmer workshop, coming up on December 5, 6 & 7.

Then we retire to the Backyard Biergarten for Sierra Nevada Pale Ales and a couple more tunes, this time two songs we wrote together, called "Medicine Man" and "Cracking the Code."

Songfarmer: A Songwriting Workshop in Austin, TX

Posted: March 5th, 2014. 0 Comments.

On the weekend of December 5-7, Gordy Quist and Owen Temple will host Songfarmer, a songwriting retreat on Lake Travis in the beautiful hill country around Austin, Texas.

Songfarmer

The creative retreat will be limited to 10-12 folks who are interested in exploring the craft/process/art of songwriting in a collaborative group setting. Through small group discussion, some one-on-one mentorship, and some co-writing sessions, Gordy and Owen will focus on training the mind to always be songfarming/treasure hunting, and hope to build a community of new friends that will stay in touch and continue collaborating.

The hope is that this relaxing, yet intensive weekend at a beautiful lakeside, hill country getaway, will renew your inspiration and commitment to the cultivation of better songs.

Pull Over

Posted: October 9th, 2014. 0 Comments.

When I'm driving down the highway, there are so many places I would love to see, but they're on the wrong side of the road. Sorry- can't crossover. That’s a car rule.

Good news that The Saxon Pub, Dan's Silver Leaf, and The Blue Door are all on the right side of the road this weekend. No crossing over required!
