What you'll do

You don't have to be a musician/songwriter to enjoy this experience: it's for everyone. The goal is to write something meaningful to you, that tells a piece of your own story and that you'll be able to take a recording of it home.

I'm fully vaccinated with both Pfizer shots.

About our Experience, first, we'll meet in my recording studio in historic East Nashville. We'll get to learn a little about each other. I will enjoy getting to know about your life and helping to find your inspiration/reason to write our song that day. We will then begin our writing and recording process.

I want you to feel completely comfortable and to be open about your important life experiences, so we can hone in on your desired subject matter. I would love to know your favorite styles of music and artists so we can draw from inspiration that resonates with you, personally.

In the end, you’ll leave this experience with a recorded demo of the song we wrote together.

Other things to note: If you don't feel inspired that day, don't worry about it. You can just let me bring the creative flow and point out your favorite parts.

Hi!! I traveled the world playing violin, guitar, mandolin and singing background vocals behind Multi-Grammy winning superstars like Ringo Starr, Taylor Swift, Shakira, Keith Urban, Dave Stewart etc. Between those tours, I performed nightly for tens of thousands of fans in sold-out stadiums and arenas around the globe.

When I'm not busy with my music, I love impressionist painting, rugged endurance hiking, and kayaking in my native Pacific Northwest.

*This one of the best things I've ever done in my life!! I'm not kidding! Don't miss this experience! I've never written a song or poem before, and Caitlin is an absolute delight and professional - I am truly impressed and grateful beyond words. She gently and gracefully helped me turn my words into lyrics, and since I don't sing or play music, she did both and created a song that had tears of gratitude going down my face. I left Nashville with my first song!! We really connected, and she truly cares about her clients, and turning their song dreams into reality. She had a wonderful music room filled with quality equipment. She is generous, intuitive, and so caring to give her best to craft my song. I can't thank her enough. She had toured for many years with top names in industry, and I enjoyed looking at all her memorabilia. Above all, Caitlin made me feel so comfortable such that I could share the deep feelings in my song and made me feel a close part of the entire creation process. I can't thank you enough Caitlin, and I'm looking forward to writing my next song with you online when I'm at home in Canada!

This was a great experience! Caitlin was very informative while explaining her song-creating process. Also, it was super impressive to watch her put the music together, and I was super happy with the final product. Caitlin discussed my story with me, and accurately conveyed it through song while also adding some amazing incite. I cannot wait to show my friends the song!

Meeting with Caitlyn to create a song for myself was an incredible experience that exceeded my expectations. It was a totally unique and powerful way to take an important season in my life and turn it into a melody with words that I can take with me - both in song and in my heart and mind. Caitlyn was tremendously gifted at listening and hearing the words in my story that I needed highlighted for me, and then putting them into the structure of a song. It came together both magically, yet with teamwork that helped me really ponder things more deeply. I also learned a lot about the creative process in songwriting by just watching Caitlyn in action. I'm so glad I took the time for this one of a kind experience, especially in the fitting city of Nashville! Thank you, Caitlyn!

This was such an amazing experience! As a musician myself, I can appreciate the creative process of writing a song. Caitlin was able to put a solid song together in 2 hours! That’s remarkable! I love my song and would do this again!
