Eric Sorenson, Finding his Directions Home

Singer-songwriter and occasional co-host of Song Talk Radio, Eric Sorenson, returned to the show to showcase tunes from his upcoming EP, Directions Home, and a crowd-pleaser from his live shows.  Eric was joined by his bandmates Liz Jaremyn and Andrew Ages.

Stuff we talked about:

  • International Songwriting Competition (deadline extended to November 5)
  • IMSTA Festa Event  – October 17, 2015 at Ryerson University (say hi to Phil and Neel while you’re there!)
  • How to create a concept album
  • Is it a bridge or a pre-chorus? (Who cares? It sounds good!)
  • When your song may not need a chorus
  • When to consider a key change / modulation in your song

Be sure to support Eric’s indiegogo campaign to help him cover production expenses for his new album.

 

 

Jeff with the team

He sang us good songs, he’s the piano man – Jeff Alan Greenway

Jeff Alan Greenway, backed by Cheryl Beatty on guitar and vocals, rocked our little studio with some powerful piano chops and heartfelt sounds. With a background in piano, jazz improvisation, cover and original bands, Jeff draws on his relationships to inspire his song writing. Whether it’s a call for closeness (Open These Doors), an on-again, off-again affair (No More Hellos), or a bitter missive to a friendship that always ends up in conflict (Eye for an Eye), Jeff’s songs grab you by the heart and won’t let go. Have a listen!
