Shifting Formats

I think the time has come to shift formats on this blog. For the last year or so I have tried to focus on mainly songwriting education, but I feel limited with that strict format and I think this blog could offer a lot more.


I have a lot of interests such as cooking, history, travel, photography, and music (of course) as well as many other things. I would like a more structured place to share those things. I'm not a social media enthusiast and I thought that those people who might like to keep up with what I am doing would be willing to check in with this blog from time to time.


I'll keep sending my newsletters to promote shows, projects and other endeavors, and I'll still post those things on social media, so if that's what you are looking for you should make sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram or sign up for the email newsletter.


All this to say, I like my friends and fans and I think this will be a good way for you all to keep up with what's happening in the world of Martin Gilmore.
