I experienced one of the best shows of my life this week called “Songs for Laura.” I went to the Cactus Café, which, for those of you have never been there, is a quintessential Austin staple. It’s like an underrated Austin City Limits.
The Songs for Laura project was created by Forest Sun, the son of Laura. Forest is a singer/songwriter from the Mill Valley area, and he asked many of his fellow songwriting friends from around the country to contribute their art to this project. Over forty amazing artists are showcased…
Each live performance has a different group of artists. This particular set I saw floored me, and I became a fan of several new artists (see below).
This was truly an example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.
They shared the staged, harmonized, laughed, joked, and jammed.
So, my question is:
How does “Songs for Laura” show up in your life?
What do you do from a service or passion standpoint to create art with others?
This is a great opportunity to think out of the box – who are you better with as a team?
Here are some unexpected examples…
