Hi. I sing and write songs :)
Music is a very important part of my life. I find it to be a fun and challenging way of self-expression and a good way to get through life. I listen to it to escape reality when it becomes too overwhelming or grim and I listen to it when I need to hear a song that relates to my emotions, negative or positive. Whether it's to celebrate a milestone, or to feel validated when I'm at my lowest point. As for performing and making music, it gives me a huge sense of achievement and liberation when I do it. It fuels my heart and soul. If music didn't exist, I don't think I would be where I am today.
To successfully have my music be heard and felt by many other people. Perhaps give them things to relate to and think about with my songs.
I would like the world better if everyone got along. No wars. No bullying. Just love and support.

There are a lot of genres, bands and artists I love and my opinion of this question always changes, depending on my mood so I can't really provide a definite answer.
Listening to other artists and my own experiences.
I think what I would like to give to people, when it comes to my songs, is something for people to relate to.
I'm full of a lot of energy. Positive energy and nervous energy. However, over time, I've learnt to utilise my nerves into excitement.
I think one thing that can be improved is how, in many places, aspiring musicians can't really find any opportunities.
Writers block. I hate it when I'm in the middle of writing a song and then I suddenly run out of ideas and have to wait, in some cases, weeks to have the inspiration, feeling and creative streak to think up more ideas. Everytime I try to force myself to think up lyrics, for example, I think up the most facepalming verses ever.
Listen to their music and give them feedback
Patience, determination and receptiveness to feedback.
