Dear Lilith Fair,
When I worked at the 2005 Songwriter’s Summit For Oneness (which was an event that partnered Songwriting Mentors from Los Angeles and Colulmbus, Ohio with aspiring high school songwriters) I had the pleasure of working alongside Dave Merenda (Songwriter for Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You”). At the time I was actually a high school teacher and had just started thinking about sharing more of my music with the world. It was so great to talk to Dave about his experiences in the music industry. Sometimes you meet someone who has more experience than you who wants to share their knowledge, answer questions you have, and just be a sounding board. As well as talking about the music industry and music that inspires us, we sat at a piano and sang “I Will Remember You” together. Here is a recording (from an actual casette tape) of us singing the song!
