Mark Cutler

Mark Cutler is a Rhode Island resident, New England music legend, and founder of The Same Thing Project, one of the first organizations in the United States dedicated to community songwriting. The Project believes everyone is a songwriter, and that music is at the root of some of life’s best emotions, especially when experienced together. The Same Thing Project's workshops include people from all walks of life - musicians, non-musicians, artists, retired folks, people with disabilities, and blue and white collar workers.  The same joy, laughter, and tears are experienced by all, with each contribution from each songwriter, however small, having the same importance...as former strangers create community and co-write an original song . Read More.
