Good episode? Give it some love!
On April 25, Gene Schmidt taught during the Karitos Experience. It was a workshop for songwriters and musicians on how to use social media to get their music out to the public.

Gene Schmidt singer, songwriter, and musician has been writing as well as performing Christian music for over three decades. His genre-diverse original music has been heard on an international level as well as sung in different languages. His acoustic ability complements the numerous melodies which he has composed. His songwriting demands a cultivated palate to fully appreciate the burst of diverse flavors at play in his music.  Although his style is acoustic=based, the arrangements go much deeper, culling from the ballad, folk, slapstick country, rock, and contemporary.
Gene has composed hundreds of songs to include worship, various causes from homelessness, missions, right-to-life, human trafficking, political campaigns, and songs for the persecuted church. (schmidtsongs.com).  Gene has traveled extensively sharing his music and ministry in Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, and a country most dear to his heart, Romania.
Along with being the head of the music department for Karitos, Gene is the founder of Christian Songwriters and Musician’s International, csminetwork.com, where he networks, mentors, and facilitates the connections of songwriters with artists, producers, and musicians. His passion is to mentor and equip the next generation of songwriters and musicians on their artistic journey. CSMI exists to equip the songwriter and musician with tools for their music ministry as well as network them with people in their craft.  From producers to venues, CSMI is a community and mentorship that will take you the artist and the projects you promote, higher.

For over 35 years Gene and his wife Anne Schmidt, singer, songwriter, and worship leader, have traveled sharing music ministry and working for Hand of Help, an outreach to Romania’s orphans. (handofhelp.com). Together they have been married for 35 years and have three grown sons and reside in southeastern Wisconsin.
