ASCAP Audio Portrait: Gretchen Peters’ “Blackbirds”

Recently I sat down with Steven Rosenfeld of ASCAP to talk about some of the songs on Blackbirds. The result is this ASCAP Audio Portrait; an in-depth discussion of five of the songs (“Blackbirds”, “Pretty Things”, “The Cure For The Pain”, “Everything Falls Away”, and “When You Comin’ Home”) and the songwriting process, with the songs themselves as the soundtrack. We talked about songwriting, spirituality, Jimmy LaFave, music as a form of church, and much more. You can listen to the whole Audio Portrait at the ASCAP Audio Portrait website.
