THE DEFINITIVE WORD ON CLASSIC BRITISH SONGWRITING – AS TOLD BY THE SONGWRITERS THEMSELVES
Twenty-seven of the UK’s finest musicians revealed the secrets behind their art in a rare collection of exclusive, in-depth conversations. Daniel Rachel recounts his conversations with them about their individual approaches to writing, the inspirations behind their most successful songs, and the techniques and methods they have independently developed. This masterclass will offer a unique glimpse into the heart of the creative process from some of greatest names in British popular music.
Copies of Isle of Noises will be available to buy and have signed at the end of the session.
Noel Gallagher: Without doubt the finest book I’ve ever read about songwriters and the songs they write.
Annie Lennox: It makes for a fascinating read…Especially if you’re trying to get a sense of what it takes to write songs…
Joan Armatrading: I think you will enjoy this book. It’s a good read and I was really interested to see what other songwriters had to say about their way of going about the creative process.
John Lydon website This is one of the few interviews that pays full respect to John’s musical and lyrical skills and is highly recommended.
