Ep. 14 – BRYAN ODEEN: Songwriting for the Soul


Though there is no fanfare during this episode, one year ago today exactly, we launched The Songwriting Podcast on September 1, 2011. Our podcast is one year old today.

For Episode 14, Jason interviews music therapist Bryan Odeen, who is one half of the duo Little Bluestem, with Liz Montgomery. Jason and Bryan discuss music therapy as an occupation, and they talk about the cathartic uses for songwriting, both for others and for one’s self. They also discuss spiritual songwriting. In this episode you’ll hear some tips for writing effectively yet tastefully expressive songs. Don’t miss it!

The Songwriting Podcast is a bi-weekly music podcast where three hosts revel in the technical and creative aspects of the craft of songwriting, with the help of guest songwriters or some other music industry professionals.
