I write passionate music from the heart, there isn't any filter. I am not trying to be too clever with my songs but tell them as honestly as possible.
For me honesty and simplicity are important, I use strong imagery and twists because like life, stories have twists (and my songs are stories). I'm fascinated by the poetry of human relationships which makes my songwriting passionate, emotional and very intimate. I really have to feel and believe in what I'm writing and singing about. I choose songs rather than poems or prose because of the immediate and direct effect sound has on the listener.
I believe music has a special power to connect with people at the deepest level and transport the words to a place they might otherwise not reach.
Like the poet William Blake used illustrations to empower his words, I use my voice and guitar to enhance the meaning of mine.
