Not long after we arrived in Montreal, we became friends with local comic Kate Connor who I mentioned in my previous montreal-centric blog post! Kate has 4 kids and her oldest daughter Mijo wanted to learn a bit more about singing and guitar so I offered to jam with her once a week.
So, Mijo and I have been hanging out since last September, and after I taught her enough guitar for her to jam on her own, I encouraged her to write a song!
Here are some photos of the overall process- everything from buying her first guitar until recording her first song earlier this afternoon!
You can listen to the song here:
PS! If you’re feeling super supportive then you can follow Mijo on Soundcloud, she’s only 11 and I’m really really proud of all the hard work she put in to create this song and teach herself some guitar!
