Welcome To The Lyricist’s Corner with David Brush

Making lyrics feel natural, sit on music in such a way that you don’t feel the effort of the author, so that they shine and bubble and rise and fall, is very, very hard to do.” – Stephen Sondheim

Mr. Sondheim – boy do we get it! Language is the lifeblood of Musical Theatre – and lyricists are the keepers of those words. 10glo wants to honor those wordsmiths and language crafters who define the artform. In that spirit, we present THE LYRICIST’S CORNER – a new bi-weekly post where we celebrate, break down, learn from and engage with a NEW lyric from the body of 10glo writers and beyond. Twice a month, we will dissect a new MT lyric and work through what makes it tick and what we can learn about the artform and ourselves.

Here’s how it works:

STEP 1: Create an account and post a video of your song on 10glo.com.

STEP 2: Submit your song and lyric via Twitter with the message “hey @brushetc – please read my lyric!” (and be sure to sure to add #10glolyrics to be considered).

Selected entries will be featured on 10glo News as David Brush – host of The 10glo Show podcast and MT lyricist – breaks down your words and honors the work, the “shine, the bubble, the rise and the fall” that make lyrics the driving energy of the MT experience.

So writers – let’s go! Send us your work!
