As I consider myself a songwriter first and a musician/performing artist second and therefore, my primary focus has always been on maintaining my songwriting output while at the same time, advancing the craft of songwriting in myself as well as teaching it to others.
For me, songwriting is a craft, an art-form, a process, an emotional outlet and (most importantly) a way of life.
I’ve created Corey Stewart Online to help all songwriters at any level, expand on what songwriting knowledge they already have or, to help beginning songwriters start off their songwriting journey in the right direction.
This website is my attempt to document all of the aspects of songwriting, musicianship and the creative process in general that I have either directly experienced myself or, what I’ve discovered on the internet along the way through hand picked articles and other sources of curated information.
It is said that the more that you work on something the better at it you become and with over 35 years of writing songs under my belt, I reckon I’ve learnt a thing or two about songwriting over that time.
Personally, I want this site to constantly remind me of why I started writing songs in the first place.
It is a well known fact that great songs are the backbone of this music industry no matter what time period you talk about. I mean without a great song there would be no music industry to speak of… RIGHT?
THAT is how important the role of the songwriter is in the whole scheme of things.
I feel it’s really important that songwriters have the best information at their fingertips as this will enable them to be the best songwriters that they can be.
As time goes on, you’ll see this website grow and evolve because over time, it’s my goal to have Corey Stewart Online become the most trusted sources of songwriting information on the web.
This site can only develop in the long term with direct input from YOU, so if in the future, there are any questions that you may have about songwriting, musicianship or the creative process in general, just let me know and I will do my very best to answer them for you.
In the meantime, I wish you all the very best on your respective songwriting journeys, no matter where it takes you. Let’s take this first step together… NOW!
Songwriting Articles – For many years I have written articles, given talks and coached individuals about the ins and outs of writing songs plus the tips, tricks and techniques that I have learnt along my own songwriting journey.
I’ll also be compiling all of my archived material from over the years and publishing them on this site as well as writing new material plus curating the very best songwriting news and information that I find online.
