The Pop Song Professor Podcast
Clifford Stumme and his guests go deep with the most popular songs out there. He explains the deeper meanings behind the songs you hear on the radio, and keeps asking the question, "Is there something more here?"

Archive Episode: How a Songwriter Thinks ft. Melissa Bel
Today we're talking to Melissa Bel, a longtime artist from Canada who met her partner in Las Vegas and moved to Great Britain. She's been all over the world, and she's been singing and writing songs the whole time, and for this episode of the show, we get deep into who she is as an artist. Even if you haven't heard of her yet, (you likely will soon--she has high aspirations!) in this episode, I ask deep questions and try to help us all learn a little bit more about how a songwriter thinks.
