Kurt Larson, Folksinger, Paul discussed on What Difference Does It Make


Like piecemeal took my He started in two thousand fifteen in started like once in a while. Get the guys together and record something or send it back and forth. How did this album come together. Well we've been using the same method to make songs now since probably the mid to late os which is when paul feels like it and has an inspiration or has any spare time. He'll record tracks at his studio. He'll get them up to sort of a pre-production state and then he'll send it to me and either he does or doesn't already have ideas for lyrics melody to the extent that he doesn't i provide that and then i come in and sing the song when we get to a sort of critical mass and they to put out an album. They meaning paul and our manager than we go through the effort of doing it for a while. we tried only releasing singles. Because i'm way more into the sort of modern internet content than than they are. And i tried to convince the name of the game now is is no longer selling albums to make money. That's dead the name now is to maintain attention to benefit us. The most we need to maintain a sense that we're an ongoing concern. That is still doing stuff regularly. So that people have an incentive to pay attention and that that would behoove us a lot more than putting out an album every three to five years in between which no one would think about us at all so we released a couple of singles on that for five months schedule. But then you know the lure of putting an alabama man me too much and now putting on another happened to find with information society singer. Kurt larson we're gonna take a break and be merry go. She is a grammy nominated. Folksinger and songwriter. And she just read a book which is part memoir and part how to write a song. It's called saved by a song. The art and healing power of songwriting pleasurable. Read because we kind of learned about her life through her songs a love her most popular songs and even some songs that inspired her and she tied it into her life. She kind of walked us through the songwriting process.

She made a left turn and became a songwriter paved by a song. The art and healing power of songwriting is available at your local bookstores. Yes we loved the indie bookstores. but we also love.
