Jilda and I have an opportunity to attend a songwriter workshop at the Alabama Folk School. The event comes up in a few weeks and we asked ourselves if we thought a workshop would be helpful. We’ve been writing songs for over 40 years. The thing is, the more we learn, the more we realize I don’t know squat.

I’m listening to Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography right now. I've always loved his music. Bruce takes a deep dive on the various projects he’s done through the years – what was going on in his life, what he was thinking, and why he wrote the songs the way he did. After each segment in which he discusses particular songs, I stopped the book, went to Spotify and listened to his song. Listening to music in this way is giving me a deep appreciation for his songwriting approach.
Jilda and I both hope the upcoming workshop is a good one. There is nothing more rewarding than learning things that can help you do your work better.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
