We are delighted to hold our 2020 Fall Songwriting Retreat once again at Harmony Landing.
Song Travelers focuses on your personal writer’s voice and goals, so there will be something for all levels of writing experience and skill. You do not have to play an instrument to attend, and you do not have to have written a song, just a strong desire.
Our goal is to create an environment for you to find your inspiration, effectively put your ideas to music, refine your songwriting and co-writing skills, overcome what holds back your self-expression and leave with the ability to write better songs. Amazing things happen when we show up for ourselves.
Harmony Landing is a retreat on the bluffs of the Harpeth River, 20 minutes west of downtown Nashville, TN in the town of Pegram. Located on 65 wooded acres, the peaceful environment provides the perfect backdrop for forging new friendships and creating new songs with songwriters you will likely continue to work with far beyond your time with us.

Perform in Nashville, Tennessee!
We’ve just added a “Song Travelers on the Road” activity for Sunday night, October 12th, for the songwriting retreat attendees.
We’ll run down to The Commodore Grille at Vandy from 6-7pm and showcase our newly minted songs at one of Nashville’s longest-running songwriter’s venues.
Debi Champion has hosted this round for 30 years and has graciously given us an hour to show off our new tunes.
You can mark playing Nashville off your bucket list!
Platinum Songwriter & Producer Wyatt Easterling has enjoyed a star-studded career working with a who's who list of top tier Nashville Country and Pop music artists over the years including Michael Johnson, Neal McCoy, and John Michael Montgomery, Keith Urban, Paul Thorn and more. He is currently focusing on his own touring and recording as well as new artist production and development. He founded Song Travelers Songwriting Retreat in 2016.
Nashville-based Mary Bragg's new album Violets as Camouflage has been heralded in Rolling Stone and NPR Music, which named it one of the 10 best albums of March 2019; "Her clear, warm alto, reminiscent of Patsy Cline, was made for confidences, and these gorgeously crafted and executed songs touch the listener on a deep level, where insight occurs."
For Mary Bragg, the process of fully coming into her own began with her last record, 2017’s critically acclaimed ‘Lucky Strike.’ Hailed as a “sublime distilling of Southern grit” and one of the year’s best by NPR, the album dipped its toes into a kind of radical honesty that Bragg had only previously hinted at, and it connected with audiences in profound and deeply personal ways. The record prompted Vice Noisey to dub her an “Americana Queen,” and World Cafe praised her “refined, sumptuously, melancholy take on Southern storytelling.” The title track earned Bragg first place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest in 2017, and the record’s second track, “Comet,” has racked up over three million streams on Spotify.
Jill Knight's soulful sound is unmistakable. A native of Savannah GA, her music delivers a southern texture blending Americana, Blues, and weaving in a little R & B that will take the listener on an unforgettable journey. Voted Best Songwriter on the Central Coast of California, 2018 New Times Music Awards. Nominated for the LA music awards “best female vocalist”, finalist at the Telluride Troubadour competition, a finalist at the National Academy of Songwriters "songwriter of the year" competition, finalist in Billboard magazines, "best-unsigned band" contest, a regional bestseller in Album Network magazine for her cd Future Perfect, best DIY albums in Performing Songwriter Magazine, Honorable mention NSAI songwriting competition, finalist in the Acoustic Live songwriter competition. Jill has toured and shared stages with... India Arie, Shawn Colvin, David Wilcox, John Prine, The Tubes, The Doobie Brothers, Roger McGuinn, Laura Nyro, Chris Isaak, Delbert Mclinton, Michael Hedges, Phoebe Snow, Richard Thompson, Little Feat, David Lindley, Los Lobos, Peter Rowan, and many others.
"Few songwriters seem to have the self-assurance that this singer possesses...Knight approaches her music with an unadorned intensity, her songs pack an emotional punch rich in the details of everyday experiences... this is first-rate, high-quality music" Dirty Linen.
"Wyatt took my song Lost Child and stripped it to the core by asking me critical questions. It was within 20 minutes he sculpted my lines and pointed out where the real message was hidden."
"One of the best experiences I’ve had since picking up the guitar was at the Song Travelers Retreat!! Learning to write a better song and making new friends that have the same interest as me has been life-changing. I never thought an old rodeo bronc rider like me would learn to write songs as I have from this retreat. After 20 years of rodeo riding (and I’m still shoeing horses at 71), I now get to sing some of my own songs at gigs on the weekends instead of all covers and having a blast doing it! Thanks, Song Travelers Retreat for an awesome experience!"
"As a songwriter, I had never collaborated with other artists until I attended a songwriting retreat where Wyatt was an instructor. I was nervous, didn’t know a soul, and was not very confident in my writing or guitar playing skills. I walked into the retreat and the first thing I found myself doing was making guacamole with Wyatt! Eventually, I asked Wyatt to produce my first album and now I have a number of songs at country radio and a brand new cd just recorded coming out soon. If you ever thought you might like to write a song then don’t miss this opportunity. Looking forward to the next event this fall in Maine!"
