Playing the piano has always been an escape for me. Recently, I have come to recognize music as my connection to a higher power. As soon as I put my fingers to the keys, they begin moving in ways I cannot predict. It’s an amazing feeling. As far as lyrics I usually write the song title first and then the chorus. I work backwards from there to tell the story. Sometimes the music comes first but sometimes the lyrics come first. One cannot predict when the muses will inspire creation. I'm always ready with a voice recorder and a notebook. The creativity is my favorite part of being an artist. The rest is just icing on the cake.
