Sue Smith spoke in our third general session on “How To Get Your Foot In The Door.”
Sue spoke both philosophically and practically about how to approach a “career” as a songwriter.
Encouraging us to be humble, she also suggested that writers always have a collection of tunes on hand (CD) to pass to folks they might encounter. She also made a strong push to record very clear demos and to not worry about paying for expensive studio stuff just to demo tunes.
Sue told her story and then asked both Twila and Jennie to share their stories on how they got their foot in the door.
