sing better

Proud Mary – Creedence Clearwater Revival – cover – Tori Matthieu – Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy

Creedence. One of my all time favorite groups.

You know one of the things I love most about Creedence? Yes of course the amazing song writing and raw musicianship. But I'd like you to take a look at something:

This is a list of of a few of Creedence hits:

Bad Moon Rising
Born on the Bayou
Down on the Corner
Fortunate Son
Green River
Have You Ever Seen The Rain?
Lookin' Out My Back Door
Proud Mary
Run Through the Jungle
Susie Q
Travelin' Band
Up Around the Bend
Who'll Stop The Rain?

and many others.

But here's what I want you to notice:

If you look at writing and recording credits of a pop song today, on one song, you will usually see 4+ different writers, several engineers, a couple producers, a slew of studio musicians spread out over several recording studios taking weeks and even months to record one song!

Of most all these CCR hits, all songs were written by one guy – John Fogerty – (with a couple small exceptions) AND was recorded by the same 4 band members IN THE SAME STUDIO in an extremely short period of time! AND these songs have been played by FM/AM radio with regularity since 1972!

This is true musicianship / songwriting folks.

Here at KTVA, we appreciate real music and artistry, and it is our goal to grow great vocalists of every genre.

I think Tori did a stellar job.

What say you? 🙂
