Songwriting under the gun! Sean Rowe enters the ad hoc SXSW studio of the SongCraft/Dubway team to compose and record a song in a day! Can he do it? Let’s see what Sean and the guys come up with...
Singer-songwriter, producer Ben Arthur is at it again. This time he's with the incredibly talented songwriter Sean Rowe. Sean and Ben are joined by the award-winning production duo of Al Houghton and Mike Crehore as they gallantly attempt to capture the ephemeral songwriting process.
Watch as Sean picks up his guitar gets down to business diving deep into his pool of creativity. See the songwriting process revealed as Ben and Sean struggle to find the song’s essence. Then witness how a simple idea comes to life as the song is coaxed lovingly to life.
Songwriting is one of those arcane creative adventures that is very hard to teach. That’s why this Songcraft series is so brilliant! You get to "see" it happen rather than hear some lecture on how it “could” happen.
So sit back and watch the wonderful Sean Rowe create a song right before your ears and eyes!

This course is equally about songwriting as it is about recording and mixing. In it we get to see how these people like to do the above and why.
Nice course, with some interesting point of view, many good tips and suggestions. very useful for students that want starting with songwriting.
There's a certain pleasure gained from being a fly on the wall and transported into someone else's creative process. Instinctively crafty, MPV! where else?
This is more so a video about the individuals in the video's song writing process. I would consider it more a documentary than a tutorial. It is however, very inspirational for those who need a little motivation.
very interesting course, or yeah it's more of a documentary. As stated earlier, it would have been even better if it included more of the creative process but nonetheless very good stuff.
Really cool to see how the not so mainstream writers work! Awesome voice, cool co-lab between all involved and a very nice format keeping it interesting all the way through on both the songwriting process, and the production! Fab song, too!
It's really fascinating to get a "fly on the wall" perspective of how these guys write a song. Its also encouraging to me as well… simply because I find they really aren't much different from me. and my writing process isn't too far removed from how they do it. very cool!
This was a very inspirational course for me. I especially enjoyed the explanation of the mixing process and appreciated the simplicity of it all. It sounded like something Johnny Cash would have done at Sun Studios back in the day. Kudos to the guys involved.
Great course !! I liked how it flowed from just an idea to a final production. The production technics and explanation for using them them was extremely helpful to me. I was a bit curious about the drums and percussions, were they done by a live drummer or software plug-in
Nice to watch the process of the making of a song. Its focus is more on work after the recording, while I was hoping to see more of the creative process of the singer/songwriter itself. Like cord progression, choice of melody etc. But it watched it in one take, so it was worth it all right.
Songcraft does it again...another great inspiration to creativity.
Didn't feel like a course really, more like a documentary. Nice, it was quite helpful.
A little short, but verrry sweet! It's always good to see these guys work a song from conception to completion.. Good gig MacPro!
Decent video. Found the mix section to be pretty helpful! Some of the sections dragged on a little which is my only critique.
Excellent, nice to see how that all came together. Great decisions in the backing vox.
