Lucinda sent some of her music to Jack and wrote "To Jack Hardy, who
has written some of the best songs I've ever heard"
David Massengill - Tree of Rhyme
David and his late friend jack were writing buddies for over 35
years... here is what Jack said about writing...
The only thing that makes you a
songwriter is writing songs. And writing songs. And writing songs. Just
write. Write now, judge later. Finish the song, even if you suspect
that it is no good. Finish it. Plug ahead. Even if it is only a
half-baked idea got on the subway or in the car on the way to your
weekly songwriting meeting, go with it. Finish it. Even if you wake up
in the middle of the night and have an idea, write it. Sort it out
.....Have faith in yourself, in your creative process, not in your
critical process. No one ever wrote a song or improved their
songwriting by having an opinion on their own song or someone else’s
song. The only way to improve is to write.
Here is John Gorka. At the festival he will be singing Potter's Field,
but here he is doing Down where the rabbits run.
