About us

100 Days of Songwriting is a motivational and inspirational community that brings together songwriters, composers, lyricists and producers so that we can get into the habit of writing, sharing, and growing our craft. 

All are welcome. It doesn’t matter your race, sexual orientation, belief system, age, or experience level, you have a place here.

Our founder

It all started with a question: what is the one thing I can do to make the biggest impact on my music? What if I turn that one thing into a daily habit?  After my first 100 days (Spring of 2017), I went from cover musician despairing that I would never write and perform an original, to a songwriter with two new songs that I love and a whole bunch in the hopper. Twice a year I join my community in the 100 day challenge, focusing on one new way to stretch and grow as a songwriter.

Rigel Thurston is a full-time musician gigging weekly in Austin, Texas. He teaches piano, voice, home studio production, songwriting and runs the 100 Days of songwriting community.

Rigel started this community in the spring of 2017 with a small group of friends meeting in his converted garage studio. After the first 100 days he witnessed his own transformation from cover-artist to songwriter. As the community grew and success stories kept churning out, he decided to make it official by creating a private platform with a mission to inspire and encourage songwriters of all experience levels, shapes, and sizes. 

Today it is a thriving community with open mics, workshops, prompts, song-critiques, and activities that give structure to songwriters' lives. Rigel continues to grow his songwriting alongside the members. You can learn more about his musical journey by checking out his website: rigelthurston.com
