   I recently spoke with singer/songwriter, John Fuzek for an episode of his fabulous music podcast for Motif Magazine

   We talked about songwriting & inspiration, songwriters in the round, RI Songwriters Association (RISA) and more. Lots of laughs. It was a fun interview. John also included 3 recordings of songs I wrote for the RISA Songwriters in the Round series!!  

  I think you will enjoy it! Have a listen here!   Best Always, Joanne
