This is a book about the art of songwriting. More specifically, the art of words composed to be sung.
Proposing this concise definition of songwriting, the author opens up a unique and fascinating perspective on the song as catalyst for transformation. He connects the dots between language and music, making visible the discreet basics great songwriters employ to compose songs that stimulate the imagination, capture the heart and create change. The book is a manifesto for a brave, new and radical approach to writing songs. It is aimed at everyone interested in the power of the word and music to make a difference.

Art is needed more than ever in times of crisis. Art allows us to examine what it is it be human. It helps us make sense of what we are going through. It allows us to voice our fears, joys, dissent and gratitude. And song, allows us to voice it in the most compelling way possible. The author illustrates by way of carefully selected extracts from masterfully composed songs, how songwriters are able to access the hidden determinants of human behaviour with words and melody. Songwriting is much more than music. It’s the most powerful way of expressing the human spirit. It has the power to accelerate transformation and bring both the songwriter and listener, into closer harmony with the pulsing and pitching of the universe.

This book will have you thinking new thoughts about songwriting and have you listening to songs with new ears. its timing could not be better.
