Script writer, puppeteer and occasional singer-songwriter John Pattison joined us, without puppets, to perform and talk about three of his songs. Together we discussed:
- the difference between abstract and narrative songs
- John’s journey from script writer to song writer
- How John wrote a song in the men’s room at Massey Hall after a Paul Simon concert
- How open mics are a great way to get instant feedback on your songs
- Puppets who kill
Stop by the Tranzac Club on their Monday night open mics and you might hear and see John there!
John also performed his songs live the studio:
