Writing Great Song Lyrics” is a concise and accessible journey through the techniques and “tricks of the trade” that Allan has developed during a very successful 30-year career as a songwriter in Australia. It also contains a number of Allan Caswell’s lyrics, which are stripped down, to explain creating and using the hook, rhyme schemes, imagery and the thought processes that went into creating them. Price includes postage.
As Allan explains “I had been running songwriting workshops for a number of years without being able to find a workable text book. I wrote Writing Great Song Lyrics to give me access to one … I can teach you things in 5 minutes that took me , or the people who showed me, 20 years of trial and error to learn”
Many of the songwriting techniques Allan uses in the book were developed as part of his work with The Australian Children’s Music Foundation where he works with kids in juvenile detention and special schools as a means of focussing their creativity.
He later found that these techniques worked as an effective, all purpose approach for anyone who wanted to create original, well crafted songs.
18 years of working the venues on the South Coast N.S.W has seen Chalkie White develop into an energetic musician/performer, with a lifetime of experience behind him with his limited edition 3 track single and a Debut Album “New Day” soon to be released. Price includes postage.
Chalkie White is a name you will be hearing a lot more of in times to come. Chalkie's influences are varied from his early years of playing both traditional country and country rock to more recent years of playing rock and top 40.
The winner of the 2001 National Country Music Muster Talent Search at Gympie in QLD, Grand finalist at Toyota Starmaker in 2002 and a list of earlier talent search wins as long as the neck on his well worn guitar, are just some of the accolades to Chalkie's credit, and the wealth of experience to compliment that.. all the right tools needed to be a force in this very competitive industry!
Matt Schlam says: "Chalkie, awesome single mate. I am loving it. I can't pick a favourite, that's a great sign. All 3 tracks send chills up my spine. I love it. "Sweet Emily" makes me cry .... "Do You Feel it Too" is a BIG cross-genre hit, which could get both Country and ARIA attention. "BYO" just makes me want to boot scoot ... it takes a talented Country writer to do that to me... I can't dance .. LOL!. I can't wait to hear what other gems you have. Well done Bro, I'm very proud of you."
