A NEW SONGWRITING PODCAST: by Nashville Steve Rempis


For those who have been saddened by the end of The Songwriting Podcast, we are pleased to announce that our very own Nashville Steve Rempis (who previously did our “Moving to Nashville” segments) has now launched his own songwriting podcast:

Episode 17 is our final episode of The Songwriting Podcast. We’re sure that this news will probably come as a shock and a disappointment to many of our faithful listeners, so Jason will give you his reasons as you listen to this episode.

Jason also has Craig, Grant and Nashville Steve Rempis with him to help give you a warm and loving send-off with the possible hope and prospect of a potential sister, spin-off podcast that’s very similar to this one… (But believe it or not, Listeners, that’s kind of up to you… Pay attention to everything written in red below.)

I. The announcement, explanation and the cloudy future of The Songwriting Podcast

II. “Moving to Nashville” segment by Nashville Steve Rempis

III. Mesake’s Tunes: Introducing Mesake’s first song, “Fine Lines” Continue reading
