Songwriting. A fellow musician asked me what my creative muse was, and I said I didn't really have one. He looked at me sideways and said - it's kind of important... I've played a lot of covers of love songs in the last year because I always had difficulty writing them, and I wanted to explore why. And my recent exploration into shadow work has become something of a fascination, and it's started to show up in my lyrics. Right now it seems I don't find what I have to say about love and hope and loss that interesting. But the stuff that makes me uncomfortable and I don't particularly like about myself... dark, dirty and edgy... Not only do I feel like I'm not going to bore myself to death, but I'm genuinely interested in how those ideas land in other people and what they make of them.
