I believe that to be successful as a songwriter, you have to be very versatile. I have had songs recorded by a very wide variety of artists. But, the area in which I have had the most success is writing my life. When I have written the experiences that have shaped and melded me, I have had success. In my former life, I was a youth “wise guy”. So, I saw the good, bad and ugly of street life. Those experiences creep into my writing often.
Only YOU can write from your perspective, so don’t miss that opportunity. Take the good, bad and ugly of your life and write it in a way that others can relate. If you do that well, you’ve got a shot.
