Kristin Starling, Executive Director of SW:S, said, “As we celebrate our landmark 10th anniversary, we are highlighting our mission, our sustainability, and our veterans’ songs and stories. We are grateful and guided by everyone who is a part of our work.”

Since 2012, SW:S has held more than 60 weekend retreats and nearly 250 custom collaborative songwriting sessions for thousands of veterans, service members, and their families around the country, and produced more than 750 songs to date. Songs are recorded professionally and registered with ASCAP with the participants as co-writers.

Board member Gary Leopold added, “Our goal is to bring attention to the challenges that veterans face, especially when you realize that only 1% of the U.S. population serves in the military on behalf of the entire country. All of us at SW:S—from the board and the staff to our generous volunteers—have ambitious goals for our 10th year and beyond. We invite supporters to join us and keep this work growing.”

About SongwritingWith:Soldiers
SongwritingWith:Soldiers is an evidence-based program using collaborative songwriting as a catalyst for positive change. SW:S provides a safe space and truly neutral ground—it is non-military, non-therapy, non-religious and non-political. Through their songs and retreat activities, participants rediscover their strengths and creativity to reconnect with family, friends, and networks with ongoing support. The songs are recorded and shared through streaming, concerts, and social media in order to bridge military and civilian communities, ultimately building awareness of the challenges faced by our returning service members. All songs can be streamed for free. An album of music written in the program, Rifles and Rosary Beads, released by artist Mary Gauthier, was nominated for a 2019 GRAMMY Award.
