Hi everyone!

My name is Olivia Gruber and I am originally from Vienna/Austria. I am currently attending the Idyllwild Arts Academy in California where I study songwriting. I wrote my first song four years ago at the age of twelve. Since then,I havenĀ“t stopped (Even though sometimes I think went through a songwriting phase and will never write again when having a long period of writers block).
This summer, I worked on writing an album and recorded it just before going back to school. I just made a music video yesterday for the first song! The link is below. Let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you so much for listening!
Olivia

Hi Olivia. I don’t see the link in your post. Would love to hear what you have! Or, you may want to post it in the “Video Venue” of the forums.

Welcome, Olivia Gruber, to the campus of Songwriter101.

There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? http://www.garyeandrews.com

OK Martin, I got that except for the word “Wadl.” What is that?

Welcome Olivia,

I quite agree with Tony (JAPOV), your rhythmic guitar playing got me tapping my foot. Nice one!

Cheers,
Bernd
