Lecturer of Songwriting and Grammy nominee Thomas Jutz recently released a joint album with Grammy winner and member of TheSteelDrivers Tammy Rogers and published an article on the American Songwriter website.
The bluegrass inspired album Surely Will Be Singing contains just 12 of the 140 songs Jutz and Rogers co-wrote together over the years. “We’d always talked about making a duo record,” Jutz said in a press release for the album. “We’re both very serious about what we do but we’re also very easygoing in the way we approach things. That’s at the heart of how we write. We’re both willing to see where things naturally go. I love that because at the end of the day, we usually wind up with something I wouldn’t have come up with on my own,” Rogers added.
Surely Will Be Singing is available on all streaming services now.
For those wanting more background on Jutz’s songwriting process, his article “Where Do Songs Come From?” recently published in American Songwriter Magazine, draws on his personal experiences as a songwriter and his sources of inspiration. Throughout the article, Jutz reminisces on the moments in his life, both past and present, that inspire and motivate him to write.
