Art of the Song is a one-hour public radio program heard on over 150 stations across North America. The show explores universal truths common to all creative expression. We hope you’ll find useful tools and information here to help you explore your own creative process, whether it be music, writing, visual arts, or just living your life as a work of art. We all have a song to sing…

Creativity is much more than a buzzword or an over-used term that has lost its meaning. Fostering and developing creativity and promoting its importance worldwide has the power to transform our society and save our planet. Through engaging in our creativity we connect with our authentic selves, we discover our unique gifts, and we can ultimately find our life purpose. Buckminster Fuller, ahead of his time as he was, said that if every human being contributed his or her unique gift, the world would be in perfect harmony. We believe that through expressing our creative voices, we discover what these unique gifts are.
By expressing our creativity and thus our spiritual nature, we as individuals connect with the world at large and the greater consciousness of the universe. We at Art of the Song have been helping to lay the groundwork for this amazing transformation that is beginning to occur. For the last six years, we have been reaching out to hundreds of thousands of listeners in cities, small towns and rural communities throughout the country. Through music and discussion about songwriting and the creative process, we have subtly and repeatedly delivered the message that we are all creative and that it is not only possible, but imperative that each and all of us express our creative voices.
Art of the Song is much more than a music and interview radio show. We are engaged in very important work, and we must garner the support (financial and otherwise) of individuals, non-profits, corporations, radio stations, and other organizations who believe in – or would be convinced of – the importance of this creative mission. Let us spread the creative word. Let us lead by creative example. Let us grow this grassroots creative movement to transform the world!
If you have any thoughts about this please let us hear from you!
