As a songwriter, if you touch people and make them feel less alone in the world, then you’ve done your job.
Write from where you are. From the place you are feeling at this moment. Happy, sad, pissed off.. start there. What you write will be real.
Songs can sound good and make sense!
Commercial success does not make someone a songwriter.
Great songs open doors.
I started being a songwriter pretending I could do it, and it turned out I could.
All is fair in love and songwriting.
For a songwriter, you don’t really go to songwriting school; you learn by listening to tunes.
Country music is three chords and the truth.
Songwriting is like therapy; it’s a connection that you have to another person, and I’m not scared of it at all for some reason.
Songwriting is too mysterious and uncontrolled a process for me to direct it towards any one thing.
I enjoy songwriting, it’s slow motion improvising.
Songwriting is therapy for the writer and the listener.
For me, songwriting is like breathing; I just do!
Songwriting is an art unto itself, not to be confused with performing.
