My inspiration for music comes from many places. Events that occur to me, my family, my friends, and sometimes to people I have never met. I find it interesting to let my imagination go regarding these events and see where it takes me. Hence the statement, "If you hear a song that sounds like it was written about you, it might have been".
I am a pure lyrics first writer. I am a bit of a storyteller. I feel the story and lyrics tell me what the rest of the song is supposed to sound like. Due to the variety in the life events that eventually turn into my music, the final songs end up being quite diverse both lyrically and musically. I really enjoy the freedom to create this way, and many times I am quite surprised how the songs turn out.
