“I really enjoyed the development process of working with RAD. My song got the attention it needed and working within a community of songwriters was educational and fun. I always looked forward to my studio time with producer Phil Carroll and we incorporated a lot of input from our industry guests into the song. As a result, we expanded and gave full expression to my song, Balloon. And it was selected as a regional finalist in the 2014 NewSong Contest, so I know we did something right.”
