ASC Podcast #13: David Musumeci (DNA Songs)

In this interview with David Musumeci of DNA Songs, we cover rookie production mistakes, matching voices, personalities and production, the importance of being seasoned in your craft before you release music, how much of your songwriting will never see the light of day and how to impress David when you walk into a co-writing session. We touch on U2, Billie Eilish, DuoLupa, Adele, Whitney Houston, Bob Dylan and more! It’s jam packed with great insights from one of Australia’s most successful pop music writer producers.
