Like birds always know what their song is, I’ve always known I am a songwriter. Have been doing that since forever and a day. Hasn’t been an easy path so far, but an interesting one. The songwriting has always happened all by itself, so I just focused on that. I’d just see where it would take me.
I discovered that, if I was able to capture my feelings in a song, some of the essence would be released again each time a song is played. And some people would feel that and it would resonate in some way. This to me was magic. I felt a responsibility to work on this. Over time I slowly developed my own style of writing. My songs are often very personal. I needed time to feel comfortable about that. I also needed time to feel comfortable with being a performer on stage.
