I agree with vasdhjk, this category is ridiculous. Where's the line between 'singer' and 'singer-songwriter'? What if a singer-songwriter sings a someone else's song, does he instantly become a singer? If anything this should be a tag for a song, not for an artist.
It is also the most useless category because it says nothing about the type of music, except that there is a singer (for which we have male/female vocalist categories).
i don't understand how this is a music genre, or something that you could categorise music with.. but whatever, i sing and i songwrite so i guess i fit in, so if you've got the time, i appreciate if you'd listen to my song :D i love you in advance http://soundcloud.com/camilla-astrid/not-the-one
Yes, this is a photo of Me (Michael James La Querka) and Kris Kristofferson, and all the young people said Kris who???? He's the guy who wrote the song "HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT" . Wanna be's like WILLIE NELSON recorded That song...................He He......Just Kiddin' Willie
singer songwriter is generally a solo project, like acoustic music. it isn't to distinguish singers from songwriters, because many times in groups outside of pop, the singer does write the lyrics and things.
I don't understand this tag; it's a top tag for many folk/pop artists, but not for singer/songwriters from other genres. Why do folk/pop fans emphasise the fact that someone wrote what he sings more than fans of other music?
If you like Kate Bush, you might also like the nordic singer/songwriter Lucie Niemelä with her romantic debut album “Doses” Would be nice, if you could have a listen: http://www.lastfm.de/music/Lucie+Niemel%C3%A4/Doses
typical of the singer-songerwriter label. its bullshit for the most part. its just a way for fans and artists that make folksy music to make themselves feel like they're better than everyone else. yea i said it :) im looking at you sharyl crow supporters. to time for me to be PC.
