Live well. Sing out, sing loud, and sing often. And God bless the child that's got a song.
I decided it was time to pay tribute to my own songs, to give them the opportunity to mature and be adult.
Being a good songwriter means paying attention and sticking your hand out the window to catch the song on the way to someone else's house!
Even though my songs may sound very personal, to me most of them are fiction. It is a great way for me to be able to live a fantasy life as a writer because I get to be someone else, someplace else for three and a half minutes, just like the listener.
