Listen to a new album co-created by songwriters and participants
An album of songs co-created in 2020 as part of a songwriting programme led by Fat Lady Opera, facilitated by Gavin Alexander and Tania Holland Williams. The songs on this album are the result of music and lyric collaborations between facilitators and participants on the project. They display a range of styles and approaches to the art of lyric and songwriting, from folk to pop ballad to latin beat.
The project uses songwriting to explore mental health well-being and themes have included making decisions; managing change; acceptance versus resignation etc. Some of the later songs have taken compositional devices from different opera arias as a start point for composition and refer to the personalities of certain opera characters.
