Comfort Zone: Breached!

It's important to step out of your comfort zone.  At least, that is what I have been told!  Recently, I have realized that I have compositions that need lyrics.  Some of the artists I work with do not write their own songs.  So in relation to the Winston Churchill quote that I've posted, I decided to take a course in songwriting.

The first thing I learned in the course was how to write effective lyrics.  You do that by writing what is real to YOU.  This means going deep emotionally and really expressing how you feel about something.  To write the best hook, it has to touch others.  Touching others requires you to use words that they can relate to.  Before I get too wordy here, what I'm trying to say is that putting emotion into words is a challenge.  I'm a man, and we all know how skilled men are at expressing their emotions! 

Regardless, I know that I want to write songs for my artists and it is what I need to take my music to the next level.  So I am willing to step out of my comfort zone to create great music.  Stay tuned!
