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:

    Not all songs have choruses, but you can easily identify the ones that do because a chorus contains the most memorable music and lyrics in the song. It is repeated after each verse and usually contains the hook. A chorus can be removed from the rest of the song and still sound complete in itself both musically and lyrically. A chorus is referred to as the ‘B’ section of verse-chorus songs.
