Songwriting: The Process of Collaborating


Category: Music
Duration: 00:06:34
Description:
Rudden+Bridge | Songwriters

Collaborating on their very first song, 'Calling [March, 2012]

Producer/Songwriter, Stephen 'Beanz' Rudden and Singer/Songwriter, Loz Bridge found each other on LinkedIn after Beanz posted a 'call to action' to gifted and talented musicians to join him in a collaborative music venture. Loz drove up from Bristol to meet and work with Beanz in his Hertfordshire-based home studio in the hopes of creating something amazing. This isn't about one person and their songwriting gift, it's about a collective of musicians and/or singers working together to create something magical.

My Thoughts: Songwriting

If you're waiting for inspiration, you may never write a song. Songwriting can be stressful and hard work ~ you need to put in the work if you're going to write great songs. Change of pace + change of place = change of perspective. Stepping outside of your comfort zone to partner with an innovative and talented musician is a way to stretch your creative muscle. It takes you away from the predictable norm and places you in a mindset for inspiration.

I believe the best songs are written in collaboration. Every writer has a their own strengths, whether it's melody, harmony, lyrics, or arrangement. It can be difficult to agree on ideas but that very tension results in stronger songs. Collaboration also fosters a team mentality in your songwriting. This isn't about one person and their songwriting gift, it's about a collective of musicians and/or singers working together to create something magical.














Stay tuned to watch the process of songwriting from beginning to end...enjoy the journey!
