Music moves people; after all, we Americans spend billions each year purchasing CDs and attending concerts. Knowing how hard it is to break into the industry, local music enthusiast Patrick Westfall has found a way to give musicians just starting out a chance to make it big. He calls it Ojai Free Song Studio. The organization’s mission is to promote local songwriters, musicians, and other artists by providing free recording services, free venues for showcasing music and art, and also free songwriter promotional services.
