Songwriting Summer 2015 cover & contents

Summer’s coming and we’re back with another 66 pages of great content for songwriters. We’ve got all your favourite segments from last time round and have filled them with a bunch of new and exciting songwriters, bringing you an app that you just won’t want to miss. Alt-rock’s next superstars Wolf Alice tell us about their much anticipated debut, one half of Scotland’s finest guitar duo The Proclaimers tells the story of the band’s success, we catch up with Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri and 70s legends KC & The Sunshine Band are back.

Elsewhere, we ask Del Amitri’s Justin Currie how he wrote Nothing Ever Happens and get legendary British songwriter, composer and producer Tony Hatch to tell the story behind writing Downtown for Petula Clark. We also introduce 18-year-old North Carolina native Dara Sisterhen, backing singer turned solo artist Eska, and UK folkie Ralegh Long.

There are more songwriting Technique features that’ll help you record better vocals, find your lyrics and have fun with nouns and metaphors, plus our resident columnist Lisa Redford gives some tips on face-to-face networking. And, if this wasn’t enough, we’ve got a profile on Dublin Studio Hub, the results of our global songwriting competition with ReverbNation, music reviews galore and a Gear section full of new product news and reviews of the latest kit.

This issue of Songwriting is available at the highly affordable price of just £0.99 ($0.99, €0.89, AUD$1.29 or CAD$1.19) from Pocket Mags (PC/Mac) and app stores including Apple Newsstand, Google Play, Windows Phone and Amazon.

    I just discovered (and subscribed to) your magazine and it is amazing. Get all the funding you can and keep this thing going. In 40+ years of songwriting, this magazine is the best one I’ve ever come across. Great work!
