About Us

The Indie Collaborative was co-founded by Grant Maloy Smith and Eileen Sherman in 2015, to be the vehicle by which independent musicians and industry professionals could find each other, and form lasting bonds of friendship. Using our website and social media platforms, our members can find collaborators to write or perform with, anywhere in the world. In addition, we have events a few times each year where we meet in person. We put on several kinds of events. There are showcases, where 20+ of our members can perform for each other in five minute blocks - anything they want! Then there are curated shows that we fully produce, again with our members, but which are intended for the public to attend. Then there are chapter meetings and social events from time to time where we can simply meet and exchange ideas and friendship. Countless collaborations have occurred as a result of the IC: a lyricist finds the composer he’s looking for, or a vocalist finds the songwriter or accompanist she needs. It’s a long list of successful collaborations.

At the end of our showcases and production shows, we normally end with our theme song. Written by IC co-founder Grant Maloy Smith, "We'll Stay Together" represents the camaraderie that musicians all around the world feel for each other. We're all on the same path, and we help each other through the twists and turns. Here are the lyrics, and the video that we made in 2020 with more than 75 of our members from all around the world!
