In this series, I ask other songwriters about their quest for inspiration and how they tackle the day-to-day tasks of writing quality, engaging songs. Behind every good song is a hard-worker. I want to know how songwriters work and how they fill their well so it never goes dry.
DEAD GAZE is the brain child of R. Cole Furlow whose dreamy, textured pop songs pull from his life in Mississippi. He writes pop songs (like Flaming Lips & Nilsson write pop songs) layered with interesting arrangements and surrealist lyrics that seem so natural and visceral. It’s a different perspective compared to some of the more commercial writers we’ve heard from here. These song are born from within and you can tell you are listening to an extension of himself. His interview is very inspiring…
We tracked drums yesterday with Bobby Huff and while John is editing today, I am catching up on my networks.
Hope y’all are all doing okay. I kinda miss my blog… what’s going on in the world?
