Fantastic and Inspirational Resource

As an aspiring songwriter, I love the format of this podcast. That first step of hammering away at an instrument and writing down a bunch of gibberish is the part that can make me feel silly, and lose confidence. However, every guest on this show starts out just like that and they keep going with that torturous process. They pick out what they like, toss the parts they don’t, after some time you can start to hear a piece of art coming together, and then they have a song!

All of the songs made in this podcast are good, and it’s incredible how different two songs with the same prompt can turn out. I’ve listened to this whole series in a day. It is inspirational and reassuring. Bravo to the producers and to the guest artists, I hope there are more episodes to come!

Cool show

I'm a music composer myself and just figured this would be an interesting show to check out. It definitely is and is really cool to hear these songwriter's processes for coming up with a song. Definitely enjoyed it and would love to hear more.
