In addition to being an all around great guy, Steve is an amazing singer/songwriter. We met at one of the Chicago Songwriter Alliance Showcases, and I have been a huge fan ever since. We talked about his approach to songwriting, what makes a song successful, and some of our favorite albums and influences. His originals included: Siren’s Song, Written in Stone, and then my own original Stand to Fall.
For the 7th Episode of the Podcast I was joined by the very talented Liz Chidester. A recent transplant to Chicago, she is an amazing talent, and I have been very blessed to have gotten in contact with her. Topics for this cast include: capos, developing a songwriting toolbox, and character writing as a songwriter.
I have been fortunate enough to get involved with the Chicago Songwriter Alliance, and as a result have found a lot of support and excitement for my own burgeoning podcast. As a result, I am going to step up the release schedule to bi-weekly. That means TWO podcasts a month, lucky you! For the fourth installment I was joined by the very talented Matt Burke.
