Ed Bell. The Song Foundry. Songwriting coaching. Songwriting tips. Songwriting inspiration.

I’m a songwriter, author and entrepreneur.

I’ve written songs for Oriental DreamWorks, wrote the bestselling book The Art of Songwriting, and worked on more than a hundred different creative projects around the world.

I also created a site called The Song Foundry.

It’s not a tips and tricks site. It’s not a music industry site.

It’s a site for songwriters who are serious about taking their skills to the next level – whether they’re on their first song or their thousandth.

If that’s you – welcome. I’m glad you found us.
