Sometimes I just sit and listen to people fighting in the street with the window open - breathing in the cigarette smoke from the people on my stoop - the passing of cars on a rainy street like the lapping of waves on a rocky shoreline and I record the goings-on of the night outside my little hole in the wall 🌃 🕳 🚕 🚬 🎸🎶💻🤔💩 - @seanmichaelmaze * * * #writingmode #songwritingmode #songwriting #songwritingprocess #record #write #recording #writing #recordingstudio #studio #studios #studioporn #studiolife #studiovibes #studioscape #audio #songwriter #audioengineer #producer #guitar #synthesizer #guitarlove #synthlove #producerlife #lovenyc #nycstudio #cozystudio #cozyworkspace #stratocaster #logicprox
There’s people who seem to be able to turn the desert your walking through into a flourishing garden. They always seem to know what to say. I wrote this song called Your Love is Like Rain about these magnificent souls. #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
I’ve ranted on about how much I love to write lyrics for long enough now 🤦🏻‍♀️ So here’s a brief snippet of something I was working on the other day. #fuckitidontcareanymore 😂 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #vocals #begginersongwriter #comments #critique #songwriting #songwritingprocess #fuckit #idontcare #lovewhatyoulove #loveyou #bekind #😂😂😂

Words from a song I’m writing at the moment, and have been working on for some time... Sure, it’s a little on the sweet side, but December must be the month to write the sweet ones... 🎄😉🤘 It will be an upbeat song, with an aabb rhyme scheme for the verses, and even reference Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 (if anyone is interested in the detailed process😉😊).
Do you love those songs that dig in deep and stay with you forever? I love those songs. I remember the first time I heard With or without You. It was a bus trip with rain running down the window. It was dark outside and I was feeling a little lonely. The songs just cut right through me. These are the songs I wasn’t to write. #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
I love songs that dig in deep and expose the rawness of a wounded heart and the unbeatable high of rising out of the cold dark to feel the sunlight warming the tips of your wings. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
♾Working on it ♾ Remind me as you walk How you hate the way I intercept the things you talk about It’s all sweet nothing Each moment we made out to be so raw and full of life was just another faded spark And all for nothing ✨ How tedious to look upon blueprints we left behind Alongside your bitterness and resentful peace of mind 🧠 While I held each breath hostage You never stopped to think twice One shot for another, now I don’t care who was right I mean it this time, don’t move any closer We can choose what we take and leave the rest all behind ✌️ • • • • #spaz #writes #asong #originalmusic #notthereyet #mellowjams #acousticguitar #lyrics #music #musiciansofinstagram #acousticoriginal #songwritingprocess #acousticzen #bedroomjams #acousticvibes #singersongwriter #acousticartist #acousticmusician #sadsongs #topvocalist #wowmusicians

I love these types of songs. They dig right in to unearth what really matters. I’m not that into sweets, I love a good pop song but any song where the artist serves up their heart is where it’s at. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess

How I procrastinate...! I’ve entered the final phase of the writing process for two albums. That’s where panic hides...! Oh man, same shit after all these years! So, cake anyone?!? Rolls? Pie?

Maybe you work somewhere where they all wear suits, everyone that is but you. Because you’re like us. You don’t want to fit in. You don’t want to drink the cool aid. You don’t want to follow the herd. You have your own ideas and they don’t involve being like everyone else. Being on the fringe isn’t easy, but we like it out here. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
Remind me as you walk How you hate the way I intercept the things you talk about It’s all sweet nothing Each moment we made out to be so raw and full of life was just another faded spark And all for nothing ✨ Gahhh I spent too long trying to figure this out and construct perfect piano vibes and when it comes down to it, I rely heavily on playing guitar to write new vocal progressions. Though my strum patterns are predictable and repetitive, for whatever reason having to spend more mental and physical energy on an instrument forces me to exist more intentionally. I can’t write songs when I’m not truly in the moment. Sometimes the things we are more comfortable with reinforce distraction yet you can always, ALWAYS push yourself to be more uncomfortable in order to level up. Alsooooo the screw up face at the end is way more real and common than not 😂😉🤘🏼• • • • #writemusiceveryday #acousticvibes #originalmusic #acousticoriginal #babystages #songwritingprocess #originalsong #musiciansofinstagram #acousticguitar #mellowjams #acousticartist #lyrics #softvoice #vocals
Struggling a little with trying to write this song at the moment. If it don’t get it right it’ll end up sounding like a cheap corny love song and there’s already enough of those in the world. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
⠀ 🎵Kai Karle Story ⠀ 🎧Die Geschichte von Kai ist deswegen so interessant, weil sie den Weg eines Musikers und den Weg eines Tonstudios, aber vor allem den Weg eines Künstlers bei uns im SoundFactory Tonstudio zeigt. ⠀ 🎧Er kam zu uns vor ein paar Jahren, um seine zu Hause aufgenommenen Songs zu mixen und mastern. ⠀ 🎧Vor drei Jahren hat Siggi das Studio durch gnadenlos perfekte Verkabelung perfektioniert und damit auch das nächste Level gehoben. ⠀ 🎧Die neuen Wandler kamen hinzu, einige Preamps und Mikrofone. Infolge dessen ist der SoundFactory-Sound ziemlich nahe zu dem Traumsound gekommen, den Siggi sich vorstellt. ⠀ 🎤Das hat Kai (und viele andere Musiker übrigens auch) sofort gemerkt! Viele Tracks wurden neu aufgenommen. Und es war klar: es wird ein Album!🤘 ⠀ 🎸Bass, Gitarre und 🥁Drums wurden für die neuen Songs aufgenommen. Und natürlich Gesang🎤und Saxophon🎷. ⠀ 🤘Bis Ende des Jahres wird das Album fertig sein und wir können es nicht abwarten, wann der Kai es der Welt präsentieren wird, denn es klingt höllisch gut!🤘 ⠀ ____________________________________ BOOK YOUR NEXT STUDIO SESSION NOW: 06227-63755 or: info@sound -factory-music.de ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #tonstudio #musiker #instamusic #saxophone #recordingstudio #recording #producers #studiolife #mixingconsole #mikrofon #albumproduktion #produzent #gitarrist #guitarlife #focusrite #audiogear #fenderguitars #sänger #masteringengineer #singersongwriter #songwriter #songwritingsession #songwritingprocess

A little stuck on the bridge of a new song I’m writing but definitely loving it. Could be one of the next ones I release! 🤘😊 . . . #songwritingprocess #martinacousticguitar #feelingstuck #femalesingersongwriter #popalternative #originalmusiconly #workingonnewmusic
‘Beautiful Road’ We wrote this song about the journey. The beautiful paths already walked, and all the road before us. The unexpected, the joy, the hurt - it’s all apart of the growing & learning. And somehow, no matter how difficult the journey seems, there is beauty in it all.
I'm forever in awe of the experience of songwriting. . The unique chance to take the jumbled mess in my brain and make it into something beautiful, poetic even. . There are many times where life gets busy and I forget to take time to write - to express my heart in this beautiful medium. But when I get back to it, I get totally sucked in and usually write a few songs in a number of days. . I like to start with a concept I'm feeling, and then find a chord progression that echoes that feeling for me. From there I play around with words and phrasing until I find what sticks. . What's your process? . . #songwriter #singersongwriter #songwriting #songwritingprocess
Maybe you’re afraid of what we will think is we see the real you, reach out and touch the flame, show us who you are. We will love you for it. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
What a beautiful night @isisfarmhouse with @upcycled_sounds @zander_sharp And @faith.eliott from Ok PAL, and local @wodehouse_and_i - Thank you to all who braved the cold dark walk down the river on a Sunday night to be with there. // // It was a bit of an experimental idea I had to invite a few of my favourite songwriters and friends to take on the challenge of not only sharing some of their songs in their rawest format, but also sharing their thoughts on songwriting and to share with us the original meaning behind some of their words. We songwriters spend an awful lot of time constructing songs with carefully chosen imagery and metaphor to speak about things that are important to us, or that we just find intriguing, but by the end of the process - our original meaning can sometimes be so hidden it's almost like a secret code or a puzzle of some kind. It seems odd but I think it's more satisfying to say something indirectly, leaving it open for people to find their own meanings, and perhaps one day they will join the dots - or maybe not. But sometimes, once in a blue moon, it's nice to let people in on the secret things we have woven into a song. It felt a true privilege and honour to have these three incredible songwriters unpack their craft for us and trust us with raw honesty for a night, and to try a bit of that myself. Only wish we could have had longer with each! . // // // #songwritingprocess #insidesongwriting #honesty #rawhonesty #songs #oxfordmusicscene #intimategig #acousticgig #songsstrippeddown #theartofsongwriting
Maybe you feel like it’s too hard to make a change. It feels like the odds are stacked against you. But have you seen flowers grow in between lose stones?

Here is the first song on my Christmas EP. I actually wrote it last year but it was rejected by Routenote bc of audio quality, so I redid it this year and it’s much better lol But I strictly use Tunecore now. The track was provided by Primcron 100, who incidentally, is now my new partner who makes my compositions. told him I needed an upbeat track for a Christmas song and he gave me this one. Thought it was perfect. So, I began brainstorming on the lyrics and just writing down things I think I would see if I was walking down the street in a quaint little town in America at Christmastime. And this song is what I came up with. Here is a 53 second blip for you to preview. EP will be released a couple of weeks before Christmas. Enjoy!😘 #musicclip #newmusicsoon #christmasep #christmastimeiscoming #pixymuse #pixymusemusic #indiemusician #newindiemusic ##songwritingprocess #brainstormingsession
“For a songwriter, you don't really go to songwriting school; you learn by listening to tunes. And you try to understand them and take them apart and see what they're made of, and wonder if you can make one, too.” - Tom Waits . . “It’s therapy. It’s fun. It’s creative. I love getting on a big writing binge and staying up a couple days working on song and knowing at the end of those two or three days that I’ve created something that was never in the world before.” - Dolly Parton . . If you are free on Sunday, in the Oxford area, and have a love for songwriting & special cosy gigs in magical places come to the barn of the Isis Farmhouse tonight!! It's going to be a night of celebrating and investigating the art of songwriting with Faith Eliott, Rosie Caldecott, Zander Sharp and myself - we will all be performing solo songs in their rawest form and then talking a little bit about the song writing process and the stories behind what we have written... We are also all attempting to write a new song specially for the occasion... There will be tickets on the door! . . . . . . . . #rosiecaldecott #zandersharp #faitheliott #okpal #upcycledsounds #oxfordmusic #oxfordmusicscene #livemusicoxford #femalesingersongwriter #tomwaitsquote #dollypartonquote #songwritingprocess #mybeautifulmess #livecreatively #inspiremyinstagram #createandcapture #shootandshare #flashesofdelight #aquietstyle #thatauthenticfeeling #postitfortheaesthetic #darlingweekend #theartofslowliving #momentsofmine #littlestoriesofmylife #feelfreefeed #creativefolk #beauthentic #humanedge #singersongwritersofinstagram
You are more than your bank account, more than your Instagram sponsorship deal, more than the number of your followers. You are human, you are flesh, you are blood, you are hope, you are disappointment, you are deflated, you are elated. You are a person. Show us who you are. That’s the person we want to see. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
Is there meaning in your day? It’s hard to hold sometimes but easy to lose. If you’ve been up late for months on end working on your dream and you feel like it’s not going anywhere it’s easy to feel deflated. But, we need you, we need people like you to show us what it takes, what can be done. You’re daring to reach out and touch the flame. We need you. We love you for it. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess

#NotesFromACoach a few useful tips about songwriting! http://www.musicthinktank.com/blog/7-laws-for-smart-songwriting.html #musicindustry #songwriting #songwritingtips
"There is music in the meadows, in the air -- Autumn is here; Skies are gray, but hearts are mellow, Leaves are crimson, brown, and yellow; Pines are soughing, birches stir, The trail is fresh beneath the fir. There is rhythm in the woods, and in the fields, Nature yields: And the harvest voices crying, Blend with Autumn zephyrs sighing; Tone and color, frost and fire, Wings the nocturne Nature plays upon her lyre." - William Stanley Braithwaite . . I think the shortening autumnal days cry out for cosy nights of music... I am so grateful that this middle-of-November week really is bringing a lot of poetry, stories and music with it at the weekend: On Sunday @rosiecaldecottmusic @faith.eliott and @zander_sharp and I will be putting on an evening of music for you at the @isisfarmhouse (a beautiful pub which according to Rosie is "a little slice of Hobbiton nestled on the river in Oxford..." - I love that beautiful description so much, it's true...) The event will be a night of celebrating the craft of songwriting, a night of solo songs in their rawest format, talking about our song writing process and each of us debuting a brand new song that has never never been performed before...I can't wait! Do come and join us in the barn of the Isis farmhouse... And two days before that, on Friday, a cast of performers, storytellers, and musicians will get together at St Aldates Tavern in Oxford for a night of 'myth-making': telling new myths for ancient museum objects that have lost their stories. (And on the Saturday in between I'll go and record some live music on a canal boat with fellow musician friends...) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #thatvelvetfeeling #thesincerestoryteller #everysquareastory #thewritinghabit #heartfullofstories #mythsandlegends #seasonspoetry #stillwithstories #oxfordevents #fairytalesinframe #theweeklyhashtagchallenge #whpcommunity #oxfordwriters #thisjaneaustenlife #gowildlyandslow #gloomandglow #hobbiton #oxfordmusicscene #isisfarmhouse #hashtagauthentic #songwritingprocess #theinstaretreaters #femalesingersongwriter #thatautumnmagic #myodetoautumn #hiddenoxford #allthingshygge #heitermoments #heiterautumn #fromwhereiwrite
You know that feeling where it feels like your not making progress, maybe you’re on a diet and trying to get fit but then you weigh yourself, and your completely surprised! I’m so pumped about this new song. I thought I was stuck in a rut with it, but last night there was a breakthrough. Can’t wait to see how it turns out. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
Maybe there’s a job you really want but the fear of going for it is too much, maybe you need to make some big changes in our life to get on the path to where you’d like to be but it seems too hard. Don’t bury your colours, you’re like no other. Show us who you are, we want to see you. Beautiful, my latest single is for you. It would be amazing if you added it your playlist. ✌️ #grateful #gratitude #life #love #spotify #singersongwriter #artist #songwriter #lyric #spotifyplaylist #song #songs #musicly #beyou #beyourself #hurt #hope #write #guitar #sing #play #music #alternativepoprock #hurt #hope #songlyrics #songwriting #songwriters #songquotes #songwritingprocess
