ARTIST DEVELOPMENT NETWORK

Essence of Songwriting

The song is everything. While my A&R and staff songwriter, David Harper and I were shooting a songwriting video segment for our newly launched website, veteran songwriter Jeff Pearson stopped by right in the middle of taping. I was so excited to see my good friend after a couple of years of him leaving Nashville to move to Georgia. I’m so thrilled that Jeff Pearson has moved back to Nashville and is once again on board as one of our regular staff writers.

We pulled Jeff into our video to share with you his thoughts on the importance of songwriting in the music industry.  With over fifteen years of hosting the writer’s night at the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee, Jeff Pearson has been highly involved in the songwriting arena.  Jeff has taught countless classes on the craft of songwriting and has helped so many songwriters learn about the do’s and the don’ts that make a hit song. He has been a writer for Phil Collins’ publishing company in Los Angeles, California, as well as being published by several large Nashville companies. We’d like to invite you to view this uncut, unrehearsed video segment.
