Video Transcript
My name is Levi Weaver. I’m from Nashville, TN and I write songs and play them.

It feels sometimes like we live in a post-music world. I don't mean that music has ceased to exist, but that if you listen to the radio, it would be easy to believe that (cue super-inflection in the narrator's voice) music doesn't exist ("…man."). At least not as an art form. Not like it should.

American Songwriter is like a beacon, a reminder that there are still people that care about writing songs that matter, songs that tell a story or invoke an emotion; songs that require more of the listener than tolerating background noise in a club or repeating "Baby, Baby, Baby" back to the car stereo.

For some of us, music is still the thing that whispers in our ear what it feels like to be a human being. American Songwriter is my monthly page-by-page reminder of that, whether it be the reviews of new albums that I haven't heard yet, or the interviews with songwriters I admire. American Songwriter tells the story of the storytellers, which is a great niche to fill.

Where some magazines focus solely on the biggest name they can get to fill any given article space, American Songwriter has monthly features that celebrate the total unknowns: a Lyric Contest and "Under the Radar" (a review of Independent artists).

But that's not to say that it is focused only on the unknown. Any artist renowned for songwriting either has or will grace the pages of this magazine. For me, this is how every music magazine should be: writing about songs that mattered to the people who wrote them, and matter to the people who listen to them, and completely ignoring the cookie-cutter, hit-by-committee world that dominates the pages of a lot of other magazines.

Songwriting, for me, is two forms of art combined: the art of chords/melody/harmony, and the art of poetry. If you think about it, there's no real logical connection between the two, but somewhere along the way, someone started pairing them, and the result was something that humanity has never gotten past. I'm glad there is a magazine that cares as much about that craft as I do.

If you care about writing great songs as well, then a subscription to American Songwriter wouldn’t be a bad asset to have around your studio.
