Since then, Winter and Nichols have met multiple times to discuss the need for a closer knit community of singer-songwriters on campus. “We want to make music together and with others and go to each others shows,” says Winter, “We need a community for support and inspiration and so that we can get feedback from other artists.” Nichols mentions, “Songwriting is such an introverted thing, it is important to have a community to get out of your own head and get inspired be others.” The Collective has plenty of plans for the semester ahead. Besides the weekly workshops and jam sessions that will be held, the group will head into New York City every week to play an open mic. They also plan to meet Thursday nights before the Open Mic in the Black Squirrel so that artists can work on their pieces together before performing. The duo have a few other activities in the works, like a show in the City and an album including at least one song by each member of the Collective. From what it sounds like, this is the group to be with if you are a singer-songwriter at SLC.
The Singer-Songwriter’s Collective will be holding a showcase at the Teahaus tonight at 8 PM. Come and check out the dynamic duo for yourself!
