Storytelling & Songwriting Make a Perfect Match – Why Didn’t I Think of it Before?

While preparing for my MoMondays performance, I realized that it’s a really neat idea to incorporate storytelling with singing songs. I’ve played songwriters in the round gigs before where songs are talked about before playing them, yet I never thought of telling a story and playing the songs in between the parts of the story, to create a live story-telling experience, until Michel suggested it. What a fun way to do a show? I started thinking about ways to bring a performance to life – props – what a great idea! Most songwriters prepare their songs, choose what to wear and put together a song list. They don’t usually think about how to interweave songs into a story. Songs, stories and images go hand to create a multi-faceted experience.
