For the next few weeks, we’re going to be taking some time away from producing new episodes of The Modern Recordist, to create space for some other projects and behind the scenes stuff we’re trying to tackle through the summer.
During the down time, we’re going to be re-running segments of some of the most popular episodes of the podcast. So this is your chance to catch an episode that you may have missed before, or perhaps pick up something new from an episode you’ve already heard.
This week, is a re-run of a segment from EP: 041 with songwriter, producer, author, and educator Cliff Goldmacher.
In this episode, Cliff shares tons of stuff he’s learned about songwriting and music making throughout his 25+ years in the business, working with folks like Keb Mo, Ke$ha, Lisa Loeb, Chris Barron of The S;in Doctors, and Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead.
In this episode you will hear Cliff talk about learning the songwriting process by writing a lot, the importance of connecting with people and building authentic relationships, keeping focused on the emotional seed of a song to create meaning, and Cliff’s philosophy on “good” and “bad” songs.
