John Brodeur, “Masterpiece” - I WROTE THIS SONG: Late summer 2000, in about 30 minutes, with Elvis Costello and Jeff Buckley in mind. (This version was recorded in 2010 for Tiger Pop Ten).
Zach Maberry, “A Love Song” - I WROTE THIS SONG: and submitted it for The American Songwriter Coffeehouse Tour contest. I didn’t win, but I was one of the 25 Finalists which I was very pleased about.
Audrey Auld, “I’d Leave Me Too” - I WROTE THIS SONG: after an argument with my partner, who made me feel dreadful about myself. I was sitting on the jetty outside our home in Woy Woy Bay, crying into the ocean when this song came. I didn’t realize the humor in it until I spoke to my sister on the phone later that day and she giggled.
Tall Heights, “To Be Young” - I WROTE THIS SONG: Paul: After finding a picture of my brother and me running on the beach when we were little kids. So young, so happy.
Little Bandit, “The One Thing” - I WROTE THIS SONG: ”about a year after getting out of a relationship. I found myself reminiscing about that time and wrote a bulk of the song, but as I reached the end, I realized that there was so much more to be hopeful about in the future, and rather than dwell on a failure from the past, I must accept my journey for what it is. The bridge of the song (which comes at the end) is sort of a mantra– that no matter how we’re hurt out on our proverbial roads, it is most definitely worth the drive.
