In the music business, it all begins with a song.
But, what is my ‘Inspiration For A Song?’
I have a need. My need is to write songs, and create music!
My inspiration can come from anywhere, anytime.
When that inspiration comes, I use my smartphone, a notepad, or any scrap of paper I can find, or even the skin on my arm, to write down and capture an idea and turn it into a song!
Maybe I am out for a beer, when I am inspired to write a song about a bar-room musician, as in BEERHALL HERO.
I find a song after a fun night at work with a pretty co-worker, and as if by magic, come up with NO COMPROMISE.
A casual outing with a woman friend leads to YOU’RE A WOMAN I CAN SING ABOUT.
My point being, every happening, every circumstance, every moment has a song!
A sunrise or sunset, a walk on the beach at high tide, a traffic jam during rush hour, or even something as simple as a great day at work, all serve to inspire me to fulfill my own personal need to make music!
The ‘Inspiration For A Song” may be different for everyone, every time, but if you have an inspiration for a song, follow your inspiration, and create your own music!
