Darden Smith for SW:S

Inspiration |  "I'll Carry You"


SW:S pairs veterans and active duty military and their families with the “Olympic athletes of songwriting” to write songs, helping the entire family voice the stories, fears and pain that inevitably result from life at war.

We are honored to welcome acclaimed singer-songwriter and SW:S co-founder Darden Smith, and the entire SW:S community to Hookist.

We could not be more proud to write a song with you.
