LIFE-LINE WORLDWIDE MUSIC PUBLISHING: SONGWRITING 101

Presentation1 (2)Nashville, TN-Jason Hollis the owner of Life-Line Worldwide Music Publishing through BMI has been hard at work on a new batch of songs in a wide-range of genres from Country, Pop, Rock, R&B, and Praise & Worship.  “My new approach is starting to work; I usually demo out my songs on guitar or keyboard and record them on a digital recording device.  Then, head to Red Room Studios to record a basic acoustic track to check the song structure from top to bottom mainly to make adjustments of exactly what I’m hearing in my head.  I usually take a bit of time to listen over and over to the song to make sure that I like the lyrics, hook, the story-line, and is it a “hit” in my mind?”  I also make sure to listen to everything that’s current out there if it’s Indie or Top 40 not to compare but to make sure that my music isn’t dated-sounding.   For instance, when I’m working on an R&B or a Pop song I usually create a rough beat to play to so I get the groove that’s in my head and it makes it a lot easier  to create.  I had a good friend tell me that if you’re not writing everyday in some form or fashion then you’re not a real songwriter.  I took that to heart and now have begun to really push harder and hone my creative process to go farther than I ever have before.
