We’ve released records independently and on major labels, written and performed with Ingrid Michaelson, A Great Big World, Joshua Radin, and more.
Our music has been heard in commercials for Cheerios, BT Infinity, Google, Facebook, and shows like Shameless, Charmed, Weeds, and more.
What our members are saying...
“Thinking Outside the Blocks has been a wonderful companion in my songwriting journey. It’s been a place I can go to be among impassioned artists, a safe place I can share my work, connect with others, learn from others and grow. A place I can get unblocked and draw inspiration to write, and get unstuck from my own mental and emotional blocks. I most certainly have become a better writer and a better vessel for music by being a part of this society. So grateful to Bess & Allie for making this group possible.”
"Thinking Outside the Blocks has been a godsend. Not only do I learn a lot from their weekly classes, I get pushed out of my comfort zone once a month and end up with a finished song of which I'm usually always proud."
"I can’t say enough great things about this group! Not only has Thinking Outside the Blocks made me step out of my own little box, this supportive community has become a haven for my songwriting addiction. I have been amazed at the wealth of resources they give, and I truly feel enriched in my songwriting goals. Don’t miss out, you can meet your future friends and co-writers this way too!"
