And they exist everywhere in between, writing songs for themselves, co-writing with others, and writing songs just for other people. Though there are many artists out there that write songs purely for their own enjoyment, songwriting can be, obviously, a very lucrative venture. And some of the most successful songwriters only write for other artists to perform. But how do the writers have their songs recorded by others?
With all four members involved in thriving solo careers and Belew doing double-duty in King Crimson, time is of co-songwriting agreement essence when it comes to crafting tunes for the band. With The Bears, everyone writes songs together or separately and does it in a way in which we can play them again and again.
Bringing in an idea in that way is a painful process for anybody collaborating. So, you write to that. Walk me through the process of negotiation between the four of you to determine what is and is not a Bears song.
First of all, most often, it happens in the studio. We all stay here in the house and we use the idea of synergy—just quickly finding something and working it up and really being excited about it and recording it there on the spot.
If anyone has a demo of their song, you stand in line. You take a number. I think it backfires when someone has over-recorded their idea.

You can put that on your solo record. You let other people take the germ of an idea you have and filter it through their own way of doing things and add their own interpretation to it. Where is it going? Is it something we should work on later? Ridicule has not entered the picture, so far.
Chris is so fast and so good. He usually gets his stuff in one or two takes.
Then the rest of us will start adding our parts or replacing mistakes we made or whatever. It may not get finished all the way, but usually in the case of Car Caught Fire, we would leave with two or three songs you could pretty well know were on their way and needed only a little refinement. Without actually meeting together in my studio, or seeing each other face-to-face, we just did the song.
I love it a lot. The way we did it is everyone did their parts separately. Chris, Rob and Bob did their parts first, then shipped them down here.The new BEARTOOTH album also features a bit of co-songwriting contribution from John Feldmann, whose work as producer, mixer, and cowriter includes albums by Good Charlotte, The Used, and 5 Seconds Of Summer.
Somewhere in late spring of last year, I listened to Sonicbids press kits for applicants to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s Emerging Artists Showcase.
WINTER sn 3 How does the collaborative process of writing for media differ from something like co-songwriting? Greg Fisher: Logistically, quite different.
North State Records producer Buck Trail is given co-songwriting credit on the label, but Pittman composed the song and wrote the lyrics and Trail’s contribution was minimal.
