Episode 8: Daniel Nahmod – “Speaking My Language”
Welcome to Episode 8!
Another great episode with another great songwriter. This is a man that I truly respect and admire because he makes his living as a songwriter. He is extremely busy with family (including a 16 month old baby, Jude), producing albums for not only himself but for other artists (like Karen Mitchell from Episode 4) and continuing to go out and play all over the place.
His music has appeared all over the place (MTV, NBC, CNN, History Channel, Lifetime…just to name a few) and he is multi-award winning. There is so much to say about this man’s accomplishments as a songwriter and so much to say about his ability to write music that matters.
Really – He is all that but I have to say that he is an all around great dude and I truly enjoyed talking with him for this episode. Shootin’ the breeze about something we both enjoy doing so much.
He is non-other than the amazing Daniel Nahmod.
I got the opportunity to sit down with Daniel (via Skype) and talk about his process of songwriting. We talk about his career thus far. We talked about the importance of music itself to people and the world.We even talk about the importance for a songwriter to learn production and recording your stuff.
One of my favorite facts about him is that he took a sabbatical and all he did was write write and write some more. There are truly so many gold nuggets of songwriter truth in this one.
My favorite piece of advice? Don’t force it. Allow yourself to write crap. Walk away if you need to. Take a break! It’s okay.
Honestly, I haven’t met many songwriters who have not expressed this to me at least once. I know that is something that I get caught in sometimes. This silly loop of “it’s gotta be perfect” blah blah blah.
As always, I truly love recording these episodes because every time I do, I learn something new. It’s more for me than it is for you.
