Talking About Songwriting with Elysabeth Alfano – Podcast

I had the great fortune recently to chat with Elysabeth Alfano of The Dinner Party, about music, songwriting and the new book, “Take It To The Bridge: Unlocking The Great Songs Inside You,” that I co-wrote with Mark Caro. We talk about what first got me interested in guitar and songwriting and dig into the songwriting process. Elysabeth is a great, enthusiastic interviewer and I sang a couple of songs live. Give it a listen!
