In Their Words

Season 6, Episode 2 of 6

Darden Smith had never had a real conversation with a U.S. military service member until he met Lt. Col. Fred Cale. He quickly realized that they had much in common - both were music lovers. Through this meeting, Smith realized that the divide between soldier and civilian was not what he thought it was. He saw the potential for music and songwriting to help soldiers transition back into civilian life. Songwriting With Soldiers offers intensely immersive retreats to military veterans and active duty soldiers where they write songs about their experiences with the help of professional songwriters. Equal parts cathartic release and creative endeavor, SongwritingWith: Soldiers offers a chance at healing to the people who need it most.
