Songwriters are funny about their lyrics. When I listen to interviews of some artists, the answers they give when asked, ‘what is that song about,’ are often so funny (not in a good way), that I find myself wondering how many of us are out there who are actually taking the songwriting process seriously?
Lyrically speaking, I find that to be the most challenging aspect of songwriting. I always want to tell a story, but do it in a way that no one has ever done it before. Make the story last, make the story memorable. It’s a tall order. As I mentioned last week, this new EP…I really tried to make the stories….well, fantastic in everyway possible. I will be slowly putting out preview clips of each song, and I might even tell you the story behind them! – Kim Cameron
