Are you kidding me?? Where have you been all my life Hootsuite? LOL! I’m testing it out…so far I’m loving it! Connect your social media sites and post one status to all of them! This makes it so much easier for the busy life we all have! As a songwriter, social media marketer or just for pleasure I’m sure you will enjoy trying it out if you haven’t already!


Happy New Year’s Everyone!

Keep singing!

Every once in while as a songwriter try something different, out of the norm, and have fun with it! The moment songwriting becomes too repetitious, shake it up a little and enjoy yourself!!

Here is a theme song I wrote, and had fun with!!


This time of year is extremely busy for most, but take the moments that you do have and savour them ! Hug your loved ones, and remember what is important in this life!

Merry Early Christmas!


Empire Avenue

So I was blessed to meet many people from Empire Avenue #eav a while back.  I met the creator/designer affectionally called Dups.  This was an interview I gave about it!

Here is my interview:

Empire Avenue is a social media website with an aspect of gamification.   I have enjoyed this website tremendously using it mostly to connect with others, and share things that I enjoy such as my music of course!

Check it out!

Take care!!

Learning when and where to make money writing music can at the best of times be a challenge. I have learned that thinking outside the box for songwriting can open up new possibilities. As my songwriting quest continues, I have endlessly searched the internet for ways to do this. One of the many ways I discovered in the last few weeks are a large range of out-sourcing websites. The list of websites are quite endless and range from people who are searching to hire others to write music for things like video games, jingles, personal songs for a loved one, etc. I decided to give some of these websites a try, and was blissfully happy when I got hired! Through these out-sourcing websites I was hired to write instrumental music for several video games. It’s a wonderful way to get to do what you loved to do, and get paid for it!

Be creative about songwriting, and google ways to make money doing it!

Check out a song I did recently for one of the video games. We added a slideshow presentation to make your listening experience more enjoyable, so keep in mind that the pictures are not a part of the game…the game is in development stage.

Here are a list of some legitimate money making out-sourcing websites, you can make money at a variety of tasks including writing music!







Write every day, sing always!

Slap guitar

So I’ve been trying out my hand at slap guitar these last few months.  I wanted to bring something different to the table as a musician that was unique.  As a woman guitar player, it is rare enough to find a woman who can shred a guitar like crazy…but I am working on it!  As a songwriter I have grown a bit tired of the same four chord songs I often hear on the radio, so I hope to create something unique!  Try your hand at something unusual, break out of the box of regular chords and melodies in your songwriting, create something that is true to yourself, yet makes you the only person that does what you do!

Let me know what you guys think!

Hello dear peeps!

One of the great things about living in an age where technology is booming, is the wonder of social media. As a musician/songwriter, I have jumped into this world full force, and have learned so much!  I have pretty much have gotten sucked into this vortex, and my hubby has had to pull me out several times!   I truly enjoy getting to know people, their hopes and dreams either in person or online. I often meet people who have no idea where to begin concerning songwriting. I have found social media to be one of those rabbit holes you can never find the end to!

Let’s begin with some basics. So, perhaps you have a song that’s already written. Maybe you have even recorded it. If you haven’t, check online for some sound editing program software, that you can get for yourself to begin. You can find a lot of them online free. If you are beyond that, you’ll need some great software, like protools, or cubase. There are plenty to choose from. Next, also try to get a webcam, or video camera if you don’t already own one. You want to be able to create videos that are clear in sound and in video. Once you have recorded and videotaped a song…upload it to as many social media sites as you can. Youtube, facebook, twitter, are the big ones…there are many others. Myspace  seems to be on it’s way out!! You can always try!😉

You want to make sure that the name you use for whatever social media site is the same on each site, and that you link all your sites together. Create a “brand” for yourself, easily recognizable. Do something that is unique in your songs or videos, which will draw others in! If you want suscribers, followers or friends, you need to network as well yourself! Keep your profile picture the same, so people can easily recognize you.  Start a fan page on facebook!  As a musician, I like to use reverbnation to upload my music on my fan page…Also..I can’t emphasize enough to start a blog!

I have recently found a great social networking site called Empire Avenue.   You can add me there if you like!  https://www.empireavenue.com/kimlavigne It allows you to link pretty much all of your sites, and has chat rooms to network with others. It is also somewhat of a game, but I have completely enjoyed my experience with this site, I know you will too!

I have just scratched the surface today with all of this, but we will get into more later!

If you have any questions about the sites I have mentioned, or comments, let me know, I’d love to help you!

Love & Peace
