This podcast is only temporary

Andy White

Belfast-born Melbourne-based songwriter and producer Andy White takes a deep dive into the writing and recording of an album, going track by track through ‘This garden is only temporary’ to show how layers of lyrics and music can work together, ideas appear, and surprises are welcomed.Throughout, Andy plays excerpts from the master tapes and discusses influences and inspirations. Each episode ends with a different version of the song from the one you'll find on the released recording.The underlying theme is "How to make an album". Hopefully, it will spark your imagination. There is an infinite number of ways to write songs or record (or do both at the same time). What seems complicated may, in fact, have very straightforward beginnings. "If you want to express something but don't know how to express it—tell the truth. This is powerful."
