Now Playing: SXSW 2014 Featured Speaker Jarvis Cocker

Written by Rory Burbeck | Friday, Apr 11, 2014

It’s time to look back at the SXSW 2014 Music Conference and Festival, literally.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be premiering videos of our featured conference sessions and speakers, as well as performances from many of our showcasing artists.

We couldn’t think of a better place to start than with Jarvis Cocker’s informative and inspiring speech on the evolution of his songwriting process. Cocker is certainly an excellent resource for songwriters looking to test musical limits - the man was a founding member of Pulp, guiding the band to multiple hit singles and a Mercury Prize-winning album.

Mr. Cocker also went into his session more in-depth in a blog published by The Huffington Post during the festival.
