415 – Maia Sharp – new album, Reckless Thoughts, and Songwriting With Soldiers (podcast)

Nashville transplant Maia Sharp has written songs for folks like Cher and Tricia Yearwood, and produced the likes of Art Garfunkel.  Her last album, Mercy Rising, was one of our favorite albums.  In our review, we called it the “best thing she’s ever done.”  So, here we are with the followup, her 9th solo album, entitled Reckless Thoughts.

She talks about how much fun it was to co-write her catchy, new single, “Kind,” with Dean Fields and Melinda Leigh Smith. How she adds some of the tasty “extras” to her songs in her home studio.

She also tells us about how she got involved with Songwriting With Soldiers, where she meets with a veteran or family member, and writes a song about their story.
