Songwriting is proud to announce the publication of the Summer 2018 edition with Scotland’s synth-pop gods Chvrches on the cover. The digital magazine, aimed at songwriters and at fans of song-led music, provides another selection of interview features with big name artists and rising stars, songwriting tips and techniques, along with the latest news and reviews of new music and gear.
As well as getting to know Chvrches, we chat with American singer-songwriter Janis Ian, meet Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Hollies fame, and speak to Fran Healy of Scottish rock band Travis. And in our new feature, Unsung, we shine a light on the material created by Bristol’s legendary backroom songwriter Roger Cook.
Other features include How I Wrote JCB by Nizlopi‘s Luke Concannon and How I Wrote Run To You for Whitney Houston by Jud Friedman & Allan Rich, plus Jamie Lawson shows us his #SongwritingSurvivalKit, Emily Phillips shares her Diary Of A Songwriter and we explore the scene, songwriters, albums and equipment that helped create the sound of grunge. We also introduce new act Fizzy Blood and some of our past interviewees reveal The Album That Changed Everything.
In our Technique section, Ali Tamposi shares her Tips From The Topliner, we learn How To (Almost) Never Play A Bad Gig Again with Emma Hooper, and James Linderman tells us Five Things About Songwriting Coaching.
