How I Write Songs

When I write a song, I have to be feeling particularly strong about something.

There is usually something on my mind that I really want to say, so I start by writing a letter. I let it all out, all of my frustration or happiness or indifference or whatever else. Then I pick up my guitar and dissect the letter piece by piece and turn it into lyrics. This is the standard for me, but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way.

Sometimes my best songs are written in 10 minutes and I’m performing them the next day, these are always my favorite.
