Over a long, hot Christmas in Australia, Throwing Muses frontwoman and critically acclaimed solo artist Kristin Hersh considers her future as a songwriter, asking herself questions such as, is it possible to create music and not show off about it? How can artists establish and refine a following without becoming part of the commercial problem? And just how many times is it healthy to watch It’s a Wonderful Life in three weeks? In The Future of Songwriting, Hersh chooses to interrogate these questions through dialogue. From in-depth conversations with a comedian friend about the similarities between songs and jokes, via fruitful visit to Sydney’s ‘bone museums’, to a revelation from a herbal healer in New Orleans, she delivers a fierce, funny and existential meditation on the art of the song – and its future.
