best of ... singer-songwriters on The Sunday Mix 01/10/10
A singer–songwriter is a musician who writes, composes and sings their own material including lyrics and melodies. They often provide the sole accompaniment to an entire composition or song, typically using an acoustic guitar or piano. Their lyrics are often personal. The song is more important than the performance. The sound can be sparse, direct and reflective, again placing the emphasis on the song itself. Singer-songwriters came into popularity in the early 1970’s and are still sharing their stories with us as we embark on a new decade.
