What better way to start off 2012 than with a new passion I want to explore, songwriting.
While this article has been posted on multiple sites, true credit belongs to Songtrust for publishing the top songwriters of 2011.
I’ve listed the individuals in no particular order as I’m not interested in their ranking, only in their credentials.
One similarity I’ve noticed with all these songwriters is their ethnic heritage. Daniel Levitin explained that very few cognitive musicologists are from the United States. I wonder, are these songwriters also cognitive musicologists?
