I am the co-founder of Hookist. a music co-creation platform for celebrated artists/bands and their fans that revolves around a collaborative songwriting experience. It is a series of month-long songwriting EVENTS where fans of artists and songwriting, submit lyrics and engage with the artist, and together as a community write a song. It is also an opportunity for the artist(s) to engage with their fans in a ground-breaking way that is actually RELEVANT to their art and meaningful to their fans.
