“When I was younger I thought of songwriting as a magical blessing that is bestowed only upon special, chosen people. Since that time I’ve learned I am completely wrong. Songwriting is a muscle that must be worked. When one starts off, the songs may be kitschy and rather unorganized, but with time, one will find their voice and channel it. I’ve experienced it with myself and I’ve seen it in other people, like everything else practice makes perfect! The most beautiful thing about this practice, however, is that no matter where one is in their development they are still making music.”
– Jackie Venson
