7 Inspiring Podcasts for Songwriters

The best songwriting podcasts, on SongFancy - songwriting tips and inspiration

The DIY Musician Podcast from CD Baby

Probably my favorite podcast like, ever. It’s a shame it only comes out pretty randomly every month or so. But each episode is well worth a listen. Host Kevin Breuner is so casual and calming, which makes this podcast super easy to listen to. You’ll get interviews with touring bands, songwriters, promoters, lawyers, and a whole gamut of relevant, in-depth music industry conversations. I used to take this cast to the gym with me every time I went, until I ran out of episodes!

I love the premise of this podcast. Every week, Missy Modell sits down with someone – anyone – and talks about one single song that they love. These are stories about how songs have effected the lives of people.
