Wynn Gogol

The Artful Songwriter previousnext Ekstasis Editions

A journey through some of history’s most timeless popular songs, from proven hits to obscure gems, The Artful Songwriter delves into the concepts and mysteries that dwell at the heart of good songwriting. Wynn Gogol unpacks both simple skills and overarching ideas using music history to broaden and deepen the exploration. With practical ideas for improving weak areas, concrete definitions, comprehensive exercises, hundreds of musical examples and an in-depth study of the blues, The Artful Songwriter will give the aspiring songwriter all the tools needed to write soulful, well-crafted songs.

As a singer-songwriter I feel it’s very important to have someone at the controls who understands the writing process. Wynn’s experience was essential to help me bring my songs into focus. He understands the mechanics and the poetry of songwriting.
