Professional Feedback and Collaboration to Help You Leave a Musical Legacy

Welcome to Our Community!

I'm Drew Lawrence, an artist, producer, speaker, and multi-platinum selling songwriter signed to Warner Chappell Music. You might know me best for my work with Christina Perri, especially co-writing her international hit "Jar of Hearts." I've had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with amazing artists like Julia Michaels, Madison Beer, Lea Michele, The Backstreet Boys, Shane Filan (Westlife), Lindsey Stirling, and many more.

After nearly a decade of writing with and developing top talent in the industry, I decided to launch my own artist career. My band, "The Dales," has played in over 50 cities across the US, been featured on NPR’s World Cafe, and achieved nationwide radio play, even charting on the Billboard Americana charts.

Throughout my career, I've always loved discovering and developing artists. I firmly believe that everyone has a unique voice and the ability to turn their life stories into songs. Many of my artist development clients come to me with little to no experience, and within a year, they find themselves releasing albums of original songs.

I'm passionate about helping others unlock their creative potential and wanted a way to make this process more accessible, that's when the Songwriters Forum Community was born! 

Let's make some music together!

JEFF'S STORY: DISCOVERING CREATIVITY THROUGH MUSIC

Really excellent.  I am not a musician at all, but wanted to tap into a bit more of my creative side and learn a bit more about music.  Drew’s interactive style is great.  Truly I enjoyed every class.  I learned sooo much, especially in terms of chords and progressions.  I also really enjoyed breaking down some popular songs we all know.  I feel enriched.

There is no pressure to perform, but it is available to you should you want to.  He did take us through some voice drills for example.  He encouraged us all to write and perform a song of our creation.  Although I did not seem to have time for that part, I am interested in doing that in the future.  If you have any interest in this, what a great way to start.

NICK'S STORY:  FROM ASPIRING MUSICIAN TO RECORDING ARTIST!

Nick came to me at 39 years old. He had just gone through a terrible divorce and an overall challenging time in his life.

He had a dream of becoming a country artist; however, he had never written a song and had very little singing experience. In our first session, we wrote a song about the countryside where he grew up and his distaste for city life called ‚ÄúThe Stix.‚ÄĚ It would be the first of nearly 50 songs we would write together over the next four years!

During this time, Nick dedicated himself to becoming a better singer. He asked me what it would take to be able to sing at a professional level as a live performer. I answered him honestly: I thought it was possible, but he was going to have to work at it every day and be patient over the course of a couple of years.

Nick poured himself into his music, practiced constantly, and worked weekly with me. We tapped into Nick’s legacy, writing songs for different members of his family, including a beautiful tribute to his daughter who serves in the army. We wrote a profound piece for one of his dear friends who is suffering from a terminal disease. And on a lighter side, we wrote a few divorce anthems! These songs captured the fun Nick was having after healing from the pain and realizing the exciting potential of life ahead of him as a single guy. 

The result is that Nick has now released an album on Spotify of professionally produced songs. He tours around the US, Canada, and Mexico as a professional recording artist. He has even built a venue on his property in Washington State, where he books national acts. He shares the stage with them, essentially creating his own Vegas-like residency.

The most profound part of Nick’s journey is the transformation he’s experienced. He’s found a tremendous sense of purpose and joy in expressing himself as an artist. Five years after the darkest time in his life, he is now having the time of his life!

We recently just returned from Nashville, where he recorded his second album with Grammy award winner Brandon Bell. We hired the top session players in Nashville, and I believe this is his strongest work yet!

After five years of hard work, Nick is now at a top professional level and ready to be shopped to record labels.
