When I write a song, I’m always amazed that you can start with a tiny seed of an idea, and watch it grow into a huge tree in a matter of hours.
I would call myself a collaborative song writer. I love the sharing of ideas with other artists, and having the spark of inspiration bounce back and forth between us. There are no wrong answers in song writing, because each thought leads to the next one, and eventually this process culminates in a perfect image or phrase. When the melody, phrasing, emotion and lyrics come together, you can feel the spark explode into fireworks. There is a unique bond that can form very quickly between artists when we share this kind of experience.
