Writing Songs For A Living with Mark Cawley

This week SongTalk welcomed Mark Cawley to our (virtual) studio.

Mark Cawley is a hit songwriter, best selling author, in demand speaker, songwriting coach, and popular blogger. As a songwriter his songs have been on more than 16 million records to date – with a long list of cuts with legendary artists ranging from Tina Turner, Joe Cocker, Chaka Khan, and Diana Ross to Wynonna Judd, Kathy Mattea, Paul Carrack, Billie Piper, Pop Idol winners, and The Spice Girls just to name a few.

In April 2019 Mark’s first book, Song Journey: A Hit Songwriter’s Guide Through the Process, the Perils, and the Payoff of Writing Songs for a Living, entered the Amazon charts at #1 in six separate categories. And now Mark is back with a new book, The Daily Song Journal.

Mark dropped in to SongTalk to chat about his book and so much more…

We talked with Mark about:

  • his history in the music business and what he has learned
  • the difference between writing from structure and writing from the heart
  • the importance of publishing
  • how the music business has changed
