Steal Like an Artist

By Austin kleon

This book really made me rethink my songwriting process. It applies to any creative act. It's a super easy read and hey, there are lots of pictures too!


The War of Art

by Steven Pressfield

This book really kicked my ass. It's quick read about what the heck might be stopping you from doing your best work. 


Writing Better Lyrics

By Pat Pattison

This book goes DEEP inside lyric writing. It made me think about my lyrics in an entirely new way. A Berklee professor, Pat has taught the likes of Gillian Welch and John Mayer.


The Artist's Way

Julia Cameron

Even if all that you steal from this book is Julia's "Morning Pages" you'll make some huge strides in your creative journey.
