The Song That Changed My Life

posted by Nell Minow

BYUtv’s original new TV series, The Song That Changed My Life, tells the story behind an artist’s inspiration and reveals the song that changed the entire direction of their life. Following the 3/31 premiere, an episode featuring Duncan Sheik will air tomorrow night. The Tony award winning New York-based artist, composer, songwriter and producer first gained notoriety for his 1996 hit “Barely Breathing,” and went on to compose for stage and film, winning two Tony awards for the renowned musical, Spring Awakenings and a Grammy.

The Song That Changed My Life includes candid conversations, informal interviews, never-before-seen rehearsal footage and performance, offering an intimate view into an artist’s creative process and how that one pivotal piece of music inspires and continues to motivate their careers.

Future episodes will feature:

 

·        4/9: The Lower Lights: Gathering Indie players from the likes of Neon Trees, Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband, Fictionist, and solo acts like Brooke White, Mindy Gledhill and Sarah Sample, The Lower Lights brings together 40+ artists from around the country to revive and make fresh takes on an unexpected form—hymns.

·        4/16: Jack and White Brooke White (American Idol alum) and Singer-Songwriter Jack Matranga bring acoustic pop to folk sounds with their powerful harmonies and compelling lyrical stories.

·         4/23, 5/28: Fictionist: Marrying majestic harmonies and unforgettable pop hooks, Indie pop bassist Stuart Maxfield and keyboardist Jacob Jones collide 70’s era harmonies with gritty guitar licks and lyrical song twists.

·         Later episodes will include Dar Williams, Over the Rhine, Sixpence None the Richer and more.
