About SongGarten Nurturing, Protecting, Facilitating For Songwriters and Artists, our natures of truth are deeply personal perspectives we share through the songs we write and the music we play with our fellow musicians.

We assume serious responsibilities in choosing what we write about, and don a brave integrity in performing what we have written. This can, at any time, leave many of us with a deep sense of vulnerability. But it is this very vulnerability that is our biggest strength, both as writing and performing artists.

It is with this sense of responsibility to musical integrity that we have created SongGarten: to nurture creativity and protect artists vulnerability by facilitating solutions to problems we all face in todays music industry.

Intuitive Producing, Social Music Marketing, Music Digital Album Sales & Distribution, Fair Financial Administration - these are the four foundations of SongGarten’s conception and implementation.
