"We are living in a very challenging, socially isolating time. One of the most important activities for creative thinking is the sharing of resources and mentorship. Together we can conquer any obstacle or nemesis. Our goal is to enhance and respectfully sustain the craft of songwriting.

To do this we need more than musical talent. We need to join with the great minds of organizers and technical builders to help fill in. Those of us who lean to the left with our creative dream brain need a little balance from our right brain brothers and sisters. What i am saying is that everyone has a place in this endeavor.  PLEASE join us and help us grow!" - VINX

If you have not as an individual songwriter or a group met with Vinx on your song DO IT! There is one thing I have learned through experience: if you care about your craft and want to nurture it to the best of your ability and have the opportunity to have someone who is a MASTER, like Vinx, look at your work, you save yourself time, aggravation and probably money in the long run.” - Heather Kim Rodriguez (Hedda Kim) - Las Vegas USA
