The Bushwick Book Club Seattle is a group of song writers who write songs inspired by books. In this segment, these songwriters talk about their process of writing these songs and how they approach song writing in general.

The Bushwick Book Club is not your run of the mill book club. Much like any, we act upon the urge to read and to have discussions about what we read. But we found that this was not enough for us. When we read books, we also want to write songs about them.

In this segment, we get the chance to listen to a musician work through their process of writing a song inspired by a book. As we hear the song we are discussing, the song writer tells us about the process they used to finish the final product. How does the music come about? How do the words formulate? Did they enjoy the book? How did this effect the song writing process?...

It is an adventure into the mind of an artist!
