"I’ve been a songwriter, session musician and composer for over 40 years - tasting my first songwriting chart success at age 19 - and I’ve been writing rock, funk, jazz, swing, and soul songs ever since. An APRA member since 1976, with over 300 registered works, I’ve  written and produced music for 15 albums, 9 feature films, and 13 television series; had my music broadcast in over 80 countries worldwide, and for a time, was one of Australia’s highest royalty-earning composers. A member of the Australian Guild of Screen Composers since 1988, I also spent 8 years on the AGSC executive and 5 Years as President. For the past 6 years I’ve been ‘passing it forward’; lecturing BMus students in songwriting and performance - currently at Macquarie University." - Author Clive Harrison

This book is not a quest for a magic formula for writing a hit song, for that would be nonsensical – it’s the result of PhD research into Songwriting Creativity conducted through the University of Newcastle, filtered through knowledge built up over a long and successful career, and written in the hope that songwriting students and educators can apply it to their song development.
