Is that subject clickbaity enough for ya?
I want to talk about how much of yourself you put into songs. Specifically, how much pain and misery and insanity you allow yourself to wallow in, in order to create songs.
I've gone through periods of my life where I've dived deep into unrequited love, allowed myself to become terrified about the loss of a partner or family member, or just generally pushed myself closer to the land of the Completely Bonkers, to get a song with enough emotional content to satisfy me.
Sometimes the song turns out to be "a blinder" and it becomes one of my favourites, coming with me to gigs and even making it to the studio. Other times, it just becomes a painful little well that I don't really want to climb into by playing it.
How about you?
