Want to hear some moving and creative new songs written to support a great cause? Check out the “article” (conversation) below that I wrote with my friend Ronni Lynn (Here’s a song we wrote/sang together)! It features some of our favorite submissions to the Braver Angels Songwriting Contest. To be considered for future articles and contest prizes, submit your song before July 4th, 2020!
I recently became “Director of Cultural Engagement” for Braver Angels (formerly “Better Angels”)–a political non-profit fighting to depolarize America. In my new role, my biggest initiative has been launching a national songwriting contest, which you can read about or even enter here. Together with legendary songwriters Peter Yarrow, Steve Seskin, and Aaron Barker, as well as a committee of musically inclined Braver Angels, we’re trying to create more ways for artists to get involved and support our work. You can read about my past work for Braver Angels in my “It’s About U.S.” project.
