Songwriter

Writing is a very serious craft. I have learned the hard way that lyrics change lives and people are profoundly affected sometimes by a song. I guess we all have at one time or another in our lives. That is why I always attempt to write about real things. Snippets of my own life and stories I’ve heard in my travels. Sometimes a writer is the only one in society who can speak the truth without serious reprisal. In those cases it’s your duty as a lyricist to do so. Be the people’s voice, be your own, let people into your heart, and they will let you into theirs.
