Dar WilliamsHow to Write a Song That Matters by Dar Williams

There are many other songwriting guides that hint to the reader that writing a "hit song" may be on the horizon if only the reader correctly follows the guide or program. In this book, however, Williams shows readers how to tap into their OWN creative process, using their psyches, their unique life experiences, and their muses to write the songs that they are meant to write. By focusing on the process of creating a song that matters, as opposed to producing a well-constructed "widget from a song factory," songwriters will be able to establish their own voice and use it to make meaningful music.

Dar Williams is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and musician. She is also the author of What I Found in a Thousand Towns.
