Hello fellow songwriters, I’m Trey Xavier and this is the How Songs Are Made podcast. You may know me from the Gear Gods YouTube channel or my band In Virtue. And on this show, I’ll be talking to notable musical artists to learn about their songwriting process, how it is that they go from a seed of an idea to a full-blown song arrangement, and all the steps in between.
I’m here to bring the songwriting wisdom of the masters of the craft to you directly, and to get the most usable advice from them to make you the most effective songwriter you can be. There are some other podcasts out there about songwriting, but this is the only one focused on finding out the HOW - the real techniques and creative process that real successful songwriters use to write their best songs.
