Real Artists Ship
Got a half-finished book in your drawer? What? You have a three book ideas but haven’t written a page? You may need a combination writing coach, cheerleader, accountability partner, editor, and publishing guide. Remember what Steve Jobs said, when he was about to ship the first, flawed Macintosh? “Real artists ship.” If you need help telling a story, whether a cost-free chat, a consulting session, a coach, or a co-writer, send me a private message. I live for this stuff. Oh, and here are a few testimonials from current and recent clients:
“Brian is a brilliant writing coach. He is inspiring, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. I actually enjoy the ways Brian holds me accountable. He cares about the completion of my creative project, and is willing to dish out tough love when I need it; but he also cares about me as a person, and encourages me to find work/life/creativity balance. As a result, my writing comes from a joyful place, instead of one filled with heavy obligation. I’m looking forward to writing another testimonial for Brian some day—in the acknowledgements page of the book I am writing.” – Katie Mae S., US
“I had a strong calling to explore an important recent chapter in my life through writing and I called on Brian to help guide me through the process. Through a series of coaching sessions and participation in his weekly writers group, I was able to give voice to experiences and emotions I was holding deep within. Brian is an empathetic and skilled coach and I recommend him to anyone wanting to heal through the art of creative expression.” – Chojin K., The Netherlands
“Brian is helping me start up my blog. It is so amazing to have him holding my hand in this new adventure. I couldn’t wish for anyone better in coaching and guiding me through this process!” Caroline O., Thailand/ The Netherlands

“Six Days at Ronnie Scott’s:
Billy Cobham on Jazz Fusion and the
Act of Creation” On Sale Now
You can now order your copy of “Six Days at Ronnie Scott’s: Billy Cobham on Jazz Fusion and the Act of Creation,” an oral history of the life and music of the world’s most prolific and innovative jazz drummer Billy Cobham. I spent a week at the iconic London jazz club Ronnie Scott’s for an unprecedented backstage look at Bill’s six-day residency with Guy Barker’s Big Band. Six days of shows and six decades of music history with the man who revolutionized modern drumming, from his work on Miles Davis’ “Bitches Brew” to the breakthrough Mahavishnu Orchestra and a who’s who of artistic partners.
The book was formally launched June 27 onstage at Ronnie Scott’s iconic London jazz club before that evening’s sold-out show. That’s Bill with lyricist and book interviewee Gregg Kofi Brown getting a copy autographed after the event. Bill and the band reprised the concert documented in the book. Enjoy the read.
