Packing for my move, I found some old music notes from 4 or 5 years ago. These tabs turned into “Codepence” . . . . . . . . . . _______________________________________ #singersongwriter #songwriting #oldnotes #guitartabs #songwritingprocess #singersongwritersofinstagram #codependence #somecoolshit
Day 16 of 100 days of songwriting. Today I gave another crack at some lyrics for this super intimate song about "breathing in my ear," but nothing came. I'm still not sure exactly what I'm trying to say. It's almost like I'm talking to God, or my inner child—not sure if there is a difference. Instead I listened to Tom Waits, "Hold On" for inspiration and used those chords in a different key to riff a melody idea. There is something deep in there I just don't know how to say it in a way that isn't preachy. #100daysofsongwriting #songwritingprocess #showyourwork
“It’s about a guy who’s a knight in shining armor, except he lives in a world where knights don’t exist anymore.” - The Equalizer (2014) • The quote that inspired a song. “Armor” co-written/produced/feat @shwnmusic ...out soon.
Have you heard our latest single Attica? We thought we would share a little behind the scenes story about the songwriting process for this one! . . . The song originally started out as Attacca, an Italian musical term that indicates that music must flow with continuity between the movements of a symphony. As the chorus was being fleshed out, Attacca became Attica because it was easier to sing. During the research of the newly evolved title, we stumbled upon the Attica Prison Uprising and the song took on a new meaning for us. This song embodies that idea that even though the riot has passed, the prisoner’s legacy continues to live on. And we are proud to represent something as powerful as that in our music! . . . So check out the song if you haven’t already, and let us know what you think! #linkinbio . . . . . . . #musicofabraham #abrahammusic #abraham #attica #atticaprison #atticany #ny #atticaprisonriot #songwriting #songwriter #songwritingprocess #localmusic #boston #attacca #livemusic #newrelease #newmusic #behindthescenes #themakingof #ram #shepherd #prison #music #rock #rockmusic #attica #alternativepop #beats
#ThursdayVerseday @justintimberlake 'The 20/20 Experience' album came out at a very poignant time of my life and it is probably one of the biggest contributors as to why I am embarking on this musical #journey * I remember late one night, a little tiddled, waiting for a train at Clapham Junction train station, listening to 'TKO'. I got completely lost in the song and it felt like he knew exactly what I was going through and I guess it made me feel like I wasn't alone. This moment was nearly six years ago and it still sits with me every time I am #songwriting . * That is what music is all about, telling a story in a unique way, that people can actually relate to! Hopefully when my EP is finally finished, it will have the same effect on people and help them through difficult times like this song and quite frankly, @justintimberlake did for me! :) #musictherapy * #ThursdayVerseday #thursdayquotes #thursday #thursdaymotivation #thursdaythoughts #thursdayvibes #lyrics #songlyrics #lyricquotes #sonylyric #lyricstolife #inspiration #inspirational #meaningful #wordswithmeaning #deepmeaning #songwriting #songwritinginspiration #songwritingprocess #singersongwriter #singersongwriterofinstagram #singersongwriterlife
What's that Doobie Bros (I think) song with the riff everyone knows? Think of that and the rhythm of Late In The Evening by Paul Simon and you've got what's in my head about how I hear this new song sounding. A bit Hot Chip too perhaps! A foot tapper. A shoe shuffler. One to make you move. Spent some quality time working on the form of this song and so should be ready to bring it to a gig near you in the near future, I very much hope. Put on your red shoes. . . . . #singersongwriter #singersongwriters #singersongwritersofinstagram #irishsingersongwriter #essexsingersongwriter #essexsingerguitarist #irishsingerguitarist #newlyrics #newsongs #newsong2019 #newsongs2019 #paulsimon #acousticpop #melodicpop #melodicsong #diymusicartist #independentmusicartist #harlow #harlowessex #artisticprocess #songwriting #songwritingprocess #rewrite #songwords #lovemusic 🎶 #lovetheprocess #rhythm #originalsong
"Late Night Melancholy" - felt cute, might obsessively work on building melodic ideas based on this groundwork and develop a cohesive song structure over the course of the next 3 weeks later, dunno. I felt kind of @jlage -ey, if I'm allowed to turn his name into an adjective. #modernjazz #jazzguitar #solojazzguitar #songwritingprocess #beginninganewidea #latenightguitar #checkbackinaweek
I came up with this cool little riff like six months ago when I was messing around on my friend’s guitar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Didn’t think it would turn into the main idea for our next single. :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #guitarriffs #jazzchords #moveablechords #songwritingsession #songwritingprocess ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #christianguitarist #christianmusicartist #acousticvibes #summerchords
Phew it’s been a minute but by golly I’m gonna finish this challenge! No lyrics today, just some desert-ridin guitar strums 🌵🌵🌵 Day 27 of 30 Day Songwriting Challenge. 31 straight minutes of writing from a picture prompt & words.
I rarely write on paper. I write a lot in my head & especially in the shower. When I remember to I'll record myself. When I try to write on paper I loose the rythem & the words. So here's a look at my process. There is a new @slimduffyshow #blackstallion episode in the works & I was thinking about #jtsmash when this came to me... Enjoy Suckahs!!! #mikeurchinactor #mikeurchin #uncleurchin #slimduffyshow #blackstallionrocks #blackstallionband #music #songwriting #songwritingprocess
Sometimes I just want to lose myself in someone's eyes... [#musicmakestheworldgoround #loveyourself #gethelpgetbetter #songwritingprocess ]

This is my favorite lyric-writing spot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This was also taken on a rare day where it’s not six bajillion degrees outside (yay Phoenix weather). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Where’s a place that you guys like to go to be inspired? 🙂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #papagopark #songwritinginspiration #songwritingprocess #lyricwriting #christiansongwriting #christiansonglyrics #songwritingsession #originalsongs
Morning coffee ☕️ and music theory 🎵 lesson planning. My students @CSUCI get a unique experience from me because I’m also an entrepreneur. I’m building an online music training membership (like the #CrossFit for music for results!) and my students here benefit from that extra training. Today’s classes ask: what makes a good melody? What’s one musical technique you can use when you have writer’s block? How can you move subtly and elegantly through multiple keys? (We’re going to study a master, Chopin). What did you learn in your music classes today? 🤓😁 #musictheorist #musictheory #musictheoryclass #musicmajor #musicianlife #musicianlifestyle #cirlceof5ths #musictheorystaffpaper #lifeofamusician #musicteacherlife #musiciansofinstagram #pianists #ilovemyjob ❤️ #csuci #musictheoryshop #malia #musiccomposition #songwritingprocess #musicproducers #honeyourskills #musicquestionsanswered
