Songwriting has always been a desire of mine. Specifically, writing songs that can be used to bring glory to God through worship, reflection and meditation. There is something so beautiful about bringing intimate moments with God to life through music and then sharing that message publicly for others to engage and participate in. Once the creative process is complete and a song has been composed, what are the steps to take this creation and prepare it for public use and distribution? This process may look very different for those who are already established in the music industry versus artists and songwriters who are in the beginning phases of their career. Through this project, I hope to establish practical steps for artists who are just getting started in preparing their material for public consumption.
