Songcraft: Spotlight on Songwriters
is a bi-monthly podcast featuring in-depth career-spanning interviews with songwriters of various genres and eras. The show was launched in 2015 by Scott B. Bomar and Paul Duncan, who started their first band together while growing up in Nashville. They each relocated to Los Angeles many years ago, but couldn't outrun their music geek ways. Scott and Paul started Songcraft as a forum for everyone from casual music fans to fellow creative types to hear songwriters in conversation about their influences, the stories behind their songs, and how they've honed their craft.
