Hi everyone!

Well, in the US, and all around the world, the Holiday season is upon us. Everywhere we go, we're reminded of that. From the Christmas trees being sold on street corners, to all the lights everywhere. The smells, sights and sounds of the season.

As a songwriter, this is the perfect time to capture the mood and write a Christmas, Hanukkah, (or whatever you celebrate) song. Yeah, it will take time to tune it up, re-write it, and get it ready for demo, and may not be heard this year, but believe it or not, alot of artists look for Christmas songs in the summer! They pick the songs for their upcoming cd's well in advance, so they have time to polish them, record them, put the cd's out, etc.

But, just like how intense it feels when you are going through a breakup with your loved one, and write that tear-jerker, you can use the feelings you acquire during the Holidays to write a great song for the season. By the time you get the song ready, it'll be perfect timing to pitch it to artists looking for their next Holiday cd's cuts.

So, take a deep breath, listen carefully, and open your eyes wide, cause it's all around you. Inspiration! The magic of Christmas is also full of the magic of inspiration. How do you think all the other Christmas songs got written? In the Mojave desert in the heat of summer? Well, maybe some did, from delirious heat-stroked songwriters, out of their minds! I can see it now, there they lay, out of water, laying prone in the sand, sun pounding down on them, and with cracked, parched lips, they sing "Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells...."

Happy Holidays!
Send me your Holiday songs so I can enjoy them!!!

Many blessings from our home to yours.

Matt Dorman

send them to sundown songs and they'll forward them to me
