Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic

I thought this was pretty interesting. If you haven’t checked out Ryan Tedder’s (OneRepublic) song writing list, you probably should. This guy has some talent when it comes to song writing. He’s written songs for: Adele, Adam Lambert, David Cook, Beyonce, and many more. Check out this LINK HERE. (SONGS WRITTEN BY RYAN TEDDER. It shows all the songs he’s worked on.

This just goes to show you the importance of co-writing. A lot of writers are so against it and think, “This is my song and I won’t let anyone change it.” I can understand that as an artist. Its your piece of work and you are proud of it. But sometimes co-writing leads to better song writing. When writers work together, it can take the song to a new level. I’m sure you are familiar with the phrase, “Two heads are better than one.”

So as a song writer, its important not to get stuck in a shell. You want to work with other writers so you can improve your writing or you are likely to get left behind in your style and become irrelevant. If you are writing with other people right now, great, you’re on the right track. If not, I challenge you to make some connections with song writers around your area and see what you come up with.
