Description

From “one of the best singer-songwriters in bluegrass,” hear the stories behind the songs in The Songwriter in Me. Donna Ulisse, an award winning songwriter, shares how to turn inspiration into an inspiring work of art.

Learn how to feed your imagination … nurture your creativity (and revive it when it seems dormant) … see the world through a child’s eyes … discover your own unique storytelling style … engage listeners’ imaginations … be honest in your writing … access your deep well of emotions … and do research to make your stories more believable.

Ulisse also explains the mechanics of songwriting, such as rhyme, “syllable sense” and meter, and how she approaches the different parts of a song; discusses the joys (and necessity) of rewriting; and describes her process of “song scrapping,” or finding ideas for songs. She provides helpful tips for collaboration and shares some of her favorite tools of the trade, as well as other outlets to help you in your songwriting journey. Along the way, Ulisse offers numerous examples from her own rich catalog of songs and provides exercises that will help you hone your creative skills.
