Singer/Songwriter Kim Yarson Hosts Workshop at Library
From 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 14 Yarson talks about her songwriting journey.
On Saturday, July 14 at 10:30 a.m., the Westfield Memorial Library presents a program on songwriting followed by a concert at 12:30 p.m.
Kim Yarson, a singer and songwriter, presents “How to Become an Independent Artist” followed by a concert with Songwriters in the Round.
Yarson began her songwriting journey with one trip to Nashville in 1994 and with lots of hard work and many hit songwriting workshops later both in Nashville and all over NJ/NYC, she has honed her craft.
She released her first independent CD called 'Satisfied' in January of 2009. Her follow-up sophomore CD 'Thankful' released in August of 2011, was very well-received by a packed audience at the Hamilton Manor. Yarson is a Jersey Acoustic Music Award two times nominated 2010/11 for Top Female Songwriter and Album of the Year (Thankful).
Her fans paid for her first music video 'Without A Trace' on kickstarter.com and she is working towards a second now. She has been published many times in Nashville, owns her own record label, has two bands she tours with locally and has had songs cuts by independent artists with a recent song penned for an indie film called “Acceptance.”
Her lyrics come straight from the heart as she weaves truth, faith and love throughout her songs. Yarson has only scratched the surface of her plan to spread her music and her love of the craft of songwriting.
