Sometimes when I’m writing a song, I find myself searching for something to write about. I always find that if I’m going into a writing session with a subject in mind, it almost never sticks. I was asking myself why, and realize that there must be something in my subconscious that needs to come out first. It has to be expressed. I know every songwriter has different ways in approaching there art. The way I look at it. It’s like a puzzle that’s trying to reveal itself.
The song is out there in the universe, it’s almost so tangible you can see it, touch it, feel it. 9 times out of ten this feeling is achieved when I’m in a relaxed state. Once I start trusting my instincts, miracles can happen. I love collborating as well, because when your in the zone and your feeding off the right energy it can make you look at something completely different. If it’s a hook, or a cool lyric or riff. The amazing thing about songwriting is anyone of those things can change the whole vibe and idea of the song completely and that’s what makes me so excited about songwriting, the possibilities are endless. Songs can really become sacred to a lot of songwriters and to some not so much. it’s what they do, they clock and clock out and it sort of becomes a part of there lives.
But the great songs leave this lasting impression because of the source of where it came from. It’s start with a mumble and turns into “All we need is love”. It’s having a little riff and it turing into “Stairway to Heaven” I personally have just started to scratch the surface of my true potential and that excites me. Figuring out new ways to tap into your creativity and doing it, is a gift! Everyone has different ways on how they express themselves and I’m so glad I have the chance for millions of ears to listen to my expression.
