Join Jeff Tweedy, songwriter and leader of the Chicago band Wilco, for a conversation about his new book, How to Write One Song, as well as his career as a writer and musician and the importance of making creativity a part of your daily life.
This program is presented as part of Artists on Artists, a public program series that highlights the creative process and creative communities. Through this series, leading artists, authors, musicians, and performers inspire new ways of understanding the museum’s collection while making connections to their own practice.
About the artist:
The founding member and leader of the Grammy Award–winning band Wilco and the co-founder of the groundbreaking alt‐country band Uncle Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy is one of contemporary music’s most accomplished songwriters, musicians, and performers.
In addition to four albums with Uncle Tupelo and over a dozen with Wilco, Jeff has recently released four solo albums—all comprising original compositions from his 30-year songwriting career. Jeff is also the author of two books, both of which appeared on The New York Times bestseller lists: in 2018 Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back): A Memoir of Recording and Discording with Wilco, etc. and in 2020 How to Write One Song: Loving the Things We Create and How They Love Us.
