Make Space for Creativity

Don't let another week go by without  living your most inspired life. I spend hours each week researching practical tools to help you make creativity a priority.

Feel Inspired Every Week

Never run out of fresh indie and folk  tracks to listen to with the weekly-updated Secret Chord Playlist and all of my new releases.

Exclusive Invites

Every month you get an exclusive invite to live interviews & concerts with top tier artists sharing their wisdom and art with you.


3 Ways Secret Chord Will Inspire You

1. Gain the tools to create when you are busy.

Countless artists say the number one roadblack to creativity is work and family obligations. Every week I research creative philosophy, psychology and practical tips to transform a busy week into an inspired week.


2. Transform exhaustion into inspiration with curated art & music.

Art and music are food for the creative mind. If you aren't being connected to quality art, you won't feel motivated to create. I connect you to new artists that will inspire you to spend time on the things you care about.


3. Overcome perfectionism with weekly creative prompts.

Many artists spend more time feeling inadequate or daunted about their goals than they do actually working on them. Creative prompts are short exercises that bring your playful side back into your art and help you bypass perfectionism, comparison and anxiety.


Here's What Subscribers are Saying...

 I never give out my email because I'm tired of receiving crap, but I look forward to receiving Secret Chord.  Jake Farr is a talented writer and musician, I enjoy reading his feature articles and being introduced to other artists.  Even if he printed these on used greasy discarded hamburger wrappers and sent them via USPS... I would excitedly wait by my mailbox....

 I really enjoy reading Secret Chord every week. My feed is full of influencers and ads that continuously want something from me. I can easily fall into the trap of thinking I need to buy something or change myself to be better. In contrast, Jake's articles invite me to access my creative side and to be contemplative during my hectic day. I feel renewed, refreshed and encouraged by the articles and artist introductions. I am thankful for this publication that actually values the readers' creativity.

"Jake's songs have a way of engulfing you the way a great book or film does. His use of imagery and detail conjure up nostalgic images of sweetness mixed with tension in a subtle yet powerful way."
