#Quote
1[on writing songs] It's so cathartic and therapeutic that it's a relief. I'm relieved when I finally get it done because I got it out.
2I'm always coming up with ideas that have been inspired by memories, everyday life and this and that and the other. Sometimes I might borrow something from a song I started a long time ago and see if I can grab something. I keep it all. You never know when you may need one of those lines.
