right from there that's great it's kind of one of them that's where the song comes from is just getting your thoughts out there I think that's important yeah so yeah so that's you have all these songs coming out you also do the Los Angeles songwriters collective tell us more about that yeah I have been a part of growing that for many years now it's been so awesome to just see it blossom from like baby days to just it's really needed I feel in Los Angeles and something I'm super proud of to be a part of just having community for songwriters and people move here and it's like how do I get
