Songwriters! Have You Heard About Hook(ist)?

Looking for someone you can bounce ideas off?  Need some new input and ideas into your creations?  Then you might want to check in with Hook(ist), which just launched last week.  From the press release:

Hook(ist), the first ever social songwriting platform that gives fans, music lovers and aspiring artists the unprecedented opportunity to write an original song with music’s most respected artists.  The incomparable bass-baritone, 12x Juno nominee and WPG native, Brad Roberts of Crash Test Dummies, is helming our first collaboration and is essentially curating lyrics submitted by the Hook(ist) community to write what is turning out to be a very smart, provocative and quite lovely song!

This could create some very interesting connects.  Go here for more.
