lyrics

Melanie with the Song Talk Radio team

Melanie Peterson, aka Mary Poppins with a broken heart

Melanie treats the team to two live performances, talks about duality and contradictions in her songs, and asks the ultimate Facebook quiz question, “Is your guy good on paper?”

We also talked about:

  • Pat Pattison’s songwriting seminar on youTube
  • writing from a title
  • crowdfunding for your album on indiegogo

Anything can happen when it’s the All Hosts Show!

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.

Listen to the show

Phil, Peter and Neel

Neel & Peter: Erotic Terror and the Power of Collaboration

Neel and Peter talk about their collaborative approach of jamming out songs, Neel on piano/keys and Peter with either pre-written or spontaneous lyrics.  Neel’s funky and evocative keyboard parts and thoughtful arrangements combined with Peter’s compelling, intense lyrics and unique singing style has resulted in some eclectic music.
