Turning emotions into songs with poetry with Loryn Taggart

This week we welcomed Loryn Taggart back to the show, after her first appearance almost five years ago! The fast-rising jazz artist just released her album Irene, but showcased two of her other songs, The Guest and The Wedding Song.

We talked about:

  • the recent passing of Little Richard, Dave Greenfield (keyboardist for the Stranglers), and Florian Schneider (co-founder of Kraftwerk)
  • an interesting video about scams that target musicians
  • how Loryn always starts with the music, not the lyrics
  • the music scene in Montreal
  • transitioning from emotions to writing poetic lyrics that can be interpreted differently
  • how Loryn takes inspiration from other musicians and artists
  • the balance between clever and cheesy
