"For up-and-coming songwriters, just knowing the basic forms of songwriting is a little like having a wordprocessor and expecting to crank out the great American novel. Odie Blackmon is the guy who can fill in the gaps between the basics and the actual art. He has a personable, easy style that encourages creativity, as well as focusing on the essential tools of the craft that makes the "hits". He listens to writers, and actually understands the direction they're looking to go, and can add to it the "experience factor" that can bring your ideas to life. As a one-on-one mentor Odie knows the business, as well as the craft. He has the ability to tie it all together in a way that writers can really use." Robert "BlindDog"
