This week on the podcast, I hang with Americana duo Lance and Lea live in the studio for a great discussion on powerful songwriting techniques.
Our discussion centers around ways to set yourself up to win and write great songs that have an impact. Here’s a taste of what’s talked about on this episode:
•Following your intuition
•Getting out of your own way
•Letting go of control-avoiding putting your ideas in a box
•Managing the erratic schedule of songwriting and recording sessions
•Strategies for bringing out your creativity
•Not judging what comes out in the writing process
•The importance of a stress free space
•The process of finishing-bringing the songwriting process to completion, and how to know when you are done
And of course, we dive into The War Of Art, which turns out is the most recommended book on writing and creative productivity on this show.
In addition to The War Of Art, Lance and Lea also mention The Artist’s Way as a fantastic resource for creative productivity, and strong creative output.
Lance and Lea also play a few songs. Listen Now!
