Episode #50: Climbing Mountains   (Song at 6.08) Welcome to another 'songwriter speaks' episode. In fact, (Ta dah!!! ) this is my 50th episode. I really look forward to turning the mic on, having a chat and sharing a song (a demo) each week. You can check out this week's song on YouTube ( Pete Pascoe Art and Music ) too - I videoed myself singing and playing 14 songs on Valentine's Day ( I went 'live' for ...

Episode #49: Original   (Song at 6.24) Hi, I'm Pete Pascoe. I'm a songwriter (800+songs), a painter, a pianist, cartoonist and a writer. I'm enjoying recording these episodes, talking about the creative song writing process that goes on...amongst other things. Welcome to another episode of exploration, experimentation, information and fun... This is the podcast where I feature a demo of a song I've composed. Eac...

Episode#48: In My Own Time - (Song at 7.38 & 20.35) Sometimes the cliche of ‘a dark time in a life being the time where seeds can be planted and eventually grow into something new’....happens.  This is what happened with In My Own Time.  One dark night long ago, I wrote down exactly the thoughts that came into to my mind- stream of consciousness style.  The music does reflect the mood of those words. But there's an underlyi...

Episode #47: I Wish  (Song at 5.44) If you had one thing you could wish for, what would it be? There are people that come into your life, sometimes very briefly, who just seem to have the words to say that are exactly what you need to hear at that time of your life. It's a knack these people have. They are generally great listeners. They don't say much, but what they do say is worth listening to.  I think they are generall...

Episode #46: To The Sea  (Song at 8.15) In each episode, I attempt to give you an insight as to where the featured song came from, what it's about, etc.  This episode’s song, however, is an elusive fish. It's more about the feeling. It's an 'observation' sort of a lyric, delving into deep archetypal sort of undercurrents that go on between male and female energies. It talks about the dance and dramas that seem t...

Episode #45: Girl Called Insomnia   (Song at 7.45) Hi there and welcome to another episode. This week I’ve done something different: I’ve found an episode I recorded quite early on in proceedings, which I forgot about. It was fascinating for me to listen back to an ‘old’ episode - there’s been much that I’ve changed, interns of presentation, energy, etc. But the thing is, the idea, the premise of providing entertainment, song ana...

Episode #44: The View   (Song at 9:42sec) This week's song 'The View', is song #428 from my songbooks.  It's one of 16 songs which were recorded in an afternoon. You would have to call them demos, but I called it an album and released 100 CDs once upon a time. Doing this episode now will push me on to re-releasing these songs on bandcamp as an 'archive' release.  I've had a brief holiday but now I'm ...

Episode #43: Explain the Night   (Song at 4:40sec) Welcome along to another episode... Mr Piano Man here. I'm sitting at the piano (well it's hardly likely to be as sewing machine for a musical presentation) chatting as if to an intimate audience. This week we’re looking at a song called Explain The Night. I tell you exactly what inspired this song, I take you through the process, where the words come from, etc. I look at...

Episode #42: Still the Same (Lucky Man)  (Song at 4:22sec) Hi Folks, welcome to episode #42. The song kicks in at the 4mins-22seconds mark - but first…today I'll take you down to a Summer Music Festival in Mornington (Vic, Australia). I was hired to perform on the street. The first song I played, I made up on the spot, especially for a dachshund who was sitting nearby....as you do. Still The Same (Lucky Man) was written in late...

Episode #41: Favourite Time  (Song at 7:50) Hi there. Welcome to the last podcast episode for 2020. This time, I'm not only talking about the song Favourite Time ( the 4th song I wrote ), but I'm also focussing on one of my favourite times in my life: whenever I find myself in the act of writing a song.  It's like this: It sneaks up on me. One moment I'm just playing on the keys, the next I find something's come...

Episode #40:  Mobile Phone    (Song at 9:07) This week's song, song #520 was written in 2002 ! It's now 2020... And this is the year that Mobile Phone has finally been released! Same numbers in the year, just switched around a little… This is a social comment song. Generally I'm a glass half full sort of bloke, but I haven't got my head in the sand.  As a songwriter, you are by nature an observer of human spirit.  A...

Episode #39: Heart In The Distance (Face To Face) - (Song at 5:35) Thanks for tuning in for a listen. If this is your first time here, sit back, relax & be entertained. I enjoy having a yarn, letting the words and music take me where they will. This song is about the idea - the feeling - that sometimes when you're a long way away from someone you know well, sometimes it feels like they're right beside you.  I had this f...

Episode #38:  Missed Me   ( Song at 5:21) Wow! Episode #38 of my ‘song writer speaks’ series. I can’t believe there’s been that many already. It all seems so new and exciting each week when I hit the record button. I’ve had fun today, been out to the beach a couple of times today... (might’ve had a birthday, so I allowed myself sometime out - just a bit). While I was at the beach I painted a picture of the scene. This evening I mad...

Episode #37: Serene Room (Song at 6:37) Hi there, welcome to another episode. This week, once again, I look at a song I've written... This song is about the lounge in my house. As the title states, it's got a serene sort of vibe.  As I look into the lyrics, we discover the words have had the effect of taking me back in time to when I was a child. Then the view out the window gets me out of my skin...and my thoughts take me ...

Episode #36:  Enjoy the Ride ( Song at 5:50) A demo like this song is interesting..sometimes you catch a little more emotion than a studio cut, maybe there’s somethings that get edited out… maybe demos are on the way out! In these days of the digital age, a quick sketch in a home studio can become the finished recording.  Anyway, I’ve got a stack of recordings around. Old and new. This is podcast a great way for me to talk about th...

Episode #35: Pot of Gold   (Song at 5:38) Here's a slice of life, another 30 minute ‘yarn with a songwriter’.  Once again this week, I'm delivering a song, and lots of chat. In a relaxed manner, as if you're in a intimate audience and I'm the piano man introducing a song.  I take it a step further on these episodes, analysing the lyrics, talking about where the song came from, looking at musical aspects... What make...

Episode #34: (There’ll Always Be) Another Day - (Song at 9:10) Hi there, welcome! How would you like to sit back and have a listen to a songwriter speak? Now's your opportunity. I'm sitting at my piano - which I noodle away on - sometimes a little absently, as I speak. I also use the piano to demonstrate aspects of what I'm talking about.  And what I'm talking about this week Is song #584: Another day.. Where did it...

Episode #33: Time Won't Wait  - (Song at 7:55sec) Where does a song come from, where does it start, how does it build? These are some of things I talk about and demonstrate, as I chat and play my piano each week. Music plays such a big role in our life. I remember hearing John Lennon’s Imagine for the first time, on the radio. What a recording (what song, of course).. but there was something about the actual recording. Very co...

Or you might like to just hear a songwriter speak about a song his life, observations. Information and en...

Episode #31: End The Game - (Song at 8:42sec) Where did this song come from? What caused me to write these lyrics?  Without giving too much away, sometimes the world can seem a bit too ...intense. The news can be a bit grim. ...that's what can cause artists to sit down and create something that hopefully lifts their spirits - and the great thing is, it has the potential to lift other people too. That's the power of the arts...
