The Songwriters Association of Mid-North Indiana (SAMI) is celebrating several things in the month of September. On September 18th from 6:00PM until 9:00PM, SAMI will be a part of the Tippecanoe Arts Federation, Gallery Walk. SAMI’s part in this event will be very special for two reasons, the first being an open house/grand opening celebration of our new recording studio located within the TAF facility at 638 North Street, Lafayette, IN 47901. This facility called, Rec Room Recording, was made possible through a grant from NCHS and was designed and constructed by local contractors in conjunction with a very dedicated group of SAMI members. The public can stop by and tour the facility, learn about the recording process and meet the SAMI folks that made it all happen. You can visit the website at: www.recroomrecording.com
That same evening, there will be music featuring SAMI members in conjunction with several of the 2020 Shirley Martin Scholarship Winners. The scholarship winners will kick things off at 6:00PM featuring Lauren Grace, Alicia Weise, Margot Hawthorne and Alec Swank. The featured SAMI artists for that night include: Justice Fuller, Frank Muffin-Acoustic, Scott Greeson, Vickie Maris and Lee Anna Atwell. There is plenty of room for social distancing and masks are required while in the TAF Building.
Check out the very cool lessons about PRO’s (professional rights organizations) and what they mean to songwriters as well as other great songwriting tips. Stay tuned on the social media channels for www.recroomrecording.com to see the videos.

We have been meeting and sharing songs for a few months now, and I have to
tell you, it is wonderful seeing our SAMI members again. It is really
easy to join via Zoom but we have now added the in-person option. All are welcome in whichever way you are most comfortable.
Please give this a try, we'd love to see you again, and best of all, we can share some songs!
