How To Write A #1 Hit with Christopher Ward

Very excited to have the Juno-award winning songwriter, author of an international #1 hit song and the very first MuchMusic VJ join us on SongTalk. Christopher Ward has done all that and more. In our recent interview, Chris talked about his new release Same River Twice, its unique recording process and why he wanted to include his version of his song Black Velvet on the album. And of course we talked about a whole lot more.

Including topics like:

  • the inspiration for Black Velvet (hint: think Graceland)
  • how the songwriting business has changed
  • how a key line can be the portal to the entire song
  • the hard work that goes into songwriting
  • what it felt like to write a number one hit
  • the difference in writing for yourself and writing for others
