Be A Better Songwriter

Marc Cohn

Day 3 – 4

In my current 10 Blog experience, I came across this wonderful article by Andrew Peterson at the Rabbit Room site.

He wrote on the impact that singer/songwriter Marc Cohn had on his life.

And rightly so. He’s such an under appreciated songwriter. Read Andrew’s article if you’ve never really been a Cohn fan. So many great songs!

Be a Better Songwriter

Listening to guys like Cohn will inspire you as a writer. I’m challenged by his lyrical craftsmanship; and the way he puts it all to such soulful music. As a praise and worship writer I want to write creatively and thoughtfully.

It’s very easy, in the praise and worship genre, to fall back on weary clich├ęs and overdone melodies.

I’ve written several songs, and have done a series on songwriting here at the blog, but I’ve still got much to grow in!
