I'm learning a lot about myself being alone, and doing what I'm doing.
When I was 21, I got into a motorcycle accident while traveling in Europe and I had to lie around a lot in the aftermath, which was really the first time in my life that I became really focused and inspired to write.
To be honest, I'm not as goal oriented and ambitious as I once was.
Well, I actually first got into music as a small child, and as I became a teen, I sought out making money from music, weather that was singing lounge gigs, backup in studios, or weddings.
The flattery is nice, but awards don't add up to writing quality songs.
