An emotional outlet. Creating music takes my thoughts away to another place and the genre I write in is affected by my mood....
To be heard and enjoyed by as many people as possible...
Make creative subjects like music more important in the curriculum. It’s so important and good for mental health. More important than algebra!
I used to cry at Without You by Harry Nilsson when I was 3 - the chords connected with me and made me feel sad!!
The Beatles, Sheryl Crow, Oasis, Radiohead, Hybrid, Coldplay
It comes from within mainly, it’s a mood related thing. Or if I hear a really great song on the radio and I think “Ooh I need to try and write something better!”
I haven’t gigged for many years sadly. I don’t miss certain aspects of it, like lugging the year - but when the audience were in to it and appreciative then that is the best feeling ever!
My lack of self confidence and the fact I don’t like my voice!! Will I ever get over that?
