Songwriting Just Like Dating For Melissa Manchester
Los Angeles, CA -- If you think finding a date is hard, try finding a good songwriting partner.
That's the word from singer-songwriter Melissa Manchester, who collaborated with artists like Keb Mo, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Rupert "Pina Colada Song" Holmes on her new CD, "When I Look Down The Road."
In many cases, Manchester's songwriting sessions with the other writers were first-time affairs, which led to her getting a feeling similar to first date jitters.
She says she knows if a collaboration is going to work "within five seconds -- like a date" and believes it has something to do with "how a person's mind works and deals with the craft."
That's a lesson she learned from songwriter Paul Simon, who Manchester credits with giving her the best advice ever: "All of the stories have been told. It's how you tell them that matters."
