Benjamin describes his latest project as a continuation of what he’s always done throughout his career: to try and write the best songs that he can with lyrics that are honest and from his heart.
Songwriters are often praised with the backhanded comment that their lyrics are so great it means they are not mere songwriters, but poets.
There are places you can begin when you sit down to write music, but for most songwriters, it all starts with chords and progressions.
What’s the biggest problem for songwriters around the notion of process? It’s just my opinion, but I believe that over-thinking your process can be the biggest one.
We have all been there before. We’ve opened up our DAW’s, ready to write the next big hit only to stare at a blank screen and save nothing.
