What inspires you to write your next song?
My mood and my feelings at that time play a big part in what inspires me to produce my next song.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I don’t have many steps when I make a song. Since I’m a producer I like to start from scratch. A simple beat or melody to begin. I build from that. I really don’t have a certain direction when I start. I like to let my creative side take over. Not too many steps works for me.
What do you think makes a great song?
When you put your heart and soul into a song. Good substance as well makes a great song. I try to use those ingredients in my music.
