Siena Friend



I want to invite you to a celebration. A birth of sorts.


Siena Friend was in the first course we ever offered at more than 2 years ago and she’s been an integral part of our community ever since. She worked her ass off in the 6 Month DIY Album Mastermind last year and built an exquisite collection of songs. And guess what? Those songs are being shared with the world.


Of course, you‘ve seen Siena teaching Compose Yourself or Plan Your Most Creative Year, leading one of our online retreats, or coaxing new songs out of us all at the Friday Afternoon Songwriting Club. We at gls are so honored to know Siena and to have been a part of her musical journey thus far.

But her music!

If you haven’t heard her most recent singles, then I suggest you start here.

Or here.


And so, now, the invitation:

golden lotus studio is so very proud to announce Siena’s latest album, Start Again, releasing on Friday, June 18th. Head here for ways to pre-order, purchase, and stream. You can listen to the album in a park or while washing the dishes. But you might actually give yourself the treat of turning your full attention to these beautifully produced songs. You won’t regret it.


Happy listening,
for golden lotus studio
