    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Study the vocals, chord changes, melodies, and layers, all of it. You will never catch an A&R rep’s attention because you sound completely different. It will be because you sound familiar, only slightly different. For example, the band Five for Fighting’s vocals sounds like a different shade of Dave Matthews’. They sold 500,000 albums. Pete Yorn’s voice sounds like a different shade of Eddie Vedder’s. Coldplay is a different shade of Radiohead. Get over the idea of ‘selling out.’ If you want them to sell, make sure your oranges are orange because as we said, no one buys blue ones.
