The answer to my call for listener submissions of song stories has begun. Here’s Monica Serra of 7Stories with her song “Come in Clearly” and some information about the song and how she writes. Musicians! Submit more of these!
As an accompaniment to the Nakedly Examined Music podcast, I’m launching a project to collect song explanations from our musician listeners: Song Self-Exams. This video explains how to do one of these and explains one of my songs relevant to the project of the new podcast. The point is to really listen, to open yourself to a work, not to treat it like a commodity.
