Friday June 1st

Songwriters Panel Concert at the Brentwood Bay Village Empourium

This year moderator Leslie Gentile was joined by Bill Johnson and Daniel Cook. 

It was a terrific evening, with lots of shared information about the process each songwriter uses for ideas, inspiration and more. And of course, some great music!

A huge thank you to our three songwriters, Daniel Cook, Bill Johnston and Leslie Gentile.
