Songwriting 101 - Special Delivery

Not a songwriting course at all really; more like some amazing examples of what really makes a song work… what makes music, music… there’s lots of actual songwriting classes out there - this is looking at the intangibles… the emotion, expression, “the feels” if you want, the delivery… this will be a continuing series focusing on different aspects of what makes that song a great song… this one - Special Delivery, deals with the performance of (usually) the vocalist and their ability to make...


Two Heads Are Better

The second HEAD album was released on April 28th, 2018… “Dear Father” is the continuation of Alberta’s story; it delves deeper into her childhood and shows how that upbringing resulted in her messed up adult life… HEAD’s songwriting has evolved even more with this new album… strong performances from Lyric here… “I keep your picture dear father… oh you’re right inside my head… every tear you bled… I wish you were dead”... not for the faint of heart, but definitely one of 2018’s best...


Where I've Been Part 2

The second part of this series deals with mismatches. Among all the concerts I’ve seen there’ve been quite a few. You wonder what the promoters were thinking when they have Focus opening up for Joe Cocker… or Kansas opening for Bad Company… some great concerts here, but it’s like expecting two completely different audiences… and then confusing both of them... Support the show.
