Rob Baird – Songwriting Advice

Carnival recording artist, Rob Baird, shares advice to aspiring songwriters. Rob Baird says growing up in Memphis, a city suffused with music, it was impossible not to pick up the guitar as a kid. And later, pilfering his sister’s record collection, Tom Petty and band’s “don’t bore us get to the chorus” approach to song structure, melded with Baird’s affinity for darker-themed lyrics of Texas writers like Chris Knight and other legends. On his debut Blue-Eyed Angels out August 31st (Carnival Recording Company), the 23 year-old brings those influences to bear, most notably on the title track, a tale about the emptiness of the world’s oldest profession, made lighter with a chorus that jingles.

    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    The hook is often the title of the song and is similar to a slogan for a company. In most cases, a song contains a chorus that is the same or has only very small changes to it’s content each time it’s repeated. Some songs have no chorus, but most do. A song format of AAA would mean three verses with no chorus for instance. Some songs use a bridge as well. A bridge is usually of different length than a verse and usually has different music accompaniment. A bridge usually will ‘sum up’ a song’s message, or flash forward or backwards in time or often give a different perspective or surprise twist to a song.
