Lyrics Lounge: Session XVIII

March 11, 2011

From time to time it’s a good idea to research the songwriters who write your favorite tunes. These days a quick Google search can help you find information on the creators who worked behind the scenes to develop most of your iPod’s content. Consequently, our theme for last week’s session was “Know Thy Lyrics: Songwriting and Publishing Workshop.”  It turns out that songwriting can be quite a lucrative field, and signed songwriter Stori James came by Lyrics Lounge to explain how she has created a profitable business out of writing song lyrics. A member of the Sony/ATV Music Publishing family, Stori talked to ETC youth about music publishing and the importance of building strong relationships in the music business. She also performed some of her new material for our group and explained a bit about her writing process to the audience. This week the open mic was dynamic! There were a few battlers in the crowd, a handful of soulful singers, and much much more. Missed it? 😦
