Bruce, Neel, and Phil overcome many obstacles to present a song each, and then glorify each other with mountainous heaps of unqualified praise.
Neel presents a song inspired by a songwriting webinar held by songwriting coach Alex Forbes, Bruce plays his classic hit “Survivor” live in the studio, and Phil talks about writing on bass and what it means when you’re writing to a 1-3-5 chord pattern for his first song with the Parkdale Hookers.
Brian was outstanding as he demonstrated his song writing and vocal virtuosity. He throat sang, he yodelled, and he entertained with songs about pigeons on windowsills and the man in the moon. A hint of Jimmy Rogers, Tom Lehrer, and Rahsaan Roland Kirk! Check them out!
The God No!s bandmembers Peter, Sandy, Alon, Subhayu, and Rachel talk about their collaborative approach to songwriting, where each member brings a song to the band and together they refine and finish it off, in a “no-free” zone. See, democracy works after all.
Ana Morales returns to Song Talk with some new songs. We talk about how she got that amazing acoustic guitar sound in her recordings, honesty in songwriting and keeping lyrics general enough for multiple interpretations.
