Not every song written lives on past the initial creation. In fact, it is said that 90% of what you create is not used. So what happens to the other 10% of your songs?
I Heart Songwriting Club gives songwriters the space to write something quickly so you can write the necessary 90%, but also the feedback and guidance to polish and refine the 10% to take out to the world.
Let’s take a look at the evolution of a song in I Heart Songwriting Club.
After you’ve written your song for the week, simply make a rough recording of the song on a voice memo app and submit it to your group for feedback by your peers. The best part about the feedback is that it offers simple guidance around what works and what doesn’t, which is helpful to know if this is a 90% or a 10% song and offers relief around any self-doubts you might have around your song, which is a massive confidence booster for any songwriter!
Club Member, Leanne Tennant (Artist name: LT), an alternative, blues, folk, indie artist from Cairns, Australia, has very generously offered to show the evolution of her song “Bring It All Back” written in The Club from it’s first draft to release.
