We also want to foster a sense of collaboration and teamwork amongst participants,” says founder Sarah Johnson, a local singer-songwriter and painter.
“We want others to see how collaborative and welcoming the Dallas music scene is. There is no sense of competition. We all want each other to succeed and help each other have opportunities to grow as musicians,” says Johnson.
