“As a songwriter/composer, I’ve always been most successful and gratified taking an ‘outside the box’ approach. There are no rules. There is just expressing what is on your mind or in your heart as authentically as possible. Dig deep, don’t settle. Find new ways to say the same old things. Collaborate, celebrate…be YOU!”
