The hardest part of creating music is needing to meet a creative deadline and not being able to switch on the creativity at all! It can be quite frustrating. I sit there and will it to happen! So I then go back to the drawing board, which usually has nothing on it at all! If I end up with a verse and a chorus I’m happy, but it’s the finishing of the song that stumps me the most. Sometimes I’ll wake from slumber and jot down songs in a flash, but it’s the somewhat forced creativity that I find a little intimidating.
My first memory of music is hearing Paper Roses by Hank Snow! There was a lot of country music being played in my household as a youngster. I do remember performing this song especially a fair bit! I always knew I was going to be singer. I remember sitting my Mother down and singing her a song, and at the end of the performance I then declared that I was going to be a Singer.
