I know that music is very powerful. It moves you in one way or another. That gives us song writers a huge responsibility. I believe that music needs to hit the heart and not just the head. I like to try and write music with a powerful message. Although I have written many songs in the verse, chorus ,verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, format, I have seen over the years many successful writers, write outside that box and do well. Sometimes a song has a need to have a dark beginning and brighter end coupled with a building transition. Sometimes a song tells a story and you can't always fit the verse chorus format in a story song. Some song writers swear that the only way to write lyrics is to use the popular conversational style. I use that style a lot myself but also have seen great poetic works for music such as Romeo and Juliet or Phantom of the Opera that have been greatly successful and work for that type of genre. (I use those as an example, and in no way claim to be on equal ground with Shakespeare-obviously!) I don't write to be main stream, but write to drive home powerful messages often from my Christian experiences and like to write music that supports those messages. If it is an instrumental, Beauty and warmth, stirring and melodic are paramount in my mind. Music has to be creative and original, not just found accidentally from a basic chord progression. But at that same time the melody line needs some element of predictability in order for it to be catchy. Music was made by my creator and I will do my best to honor him in the music I write. I am very familiar with most every genre out there, and seek not to please everyone. I am still open to feedback, but don't always seek it, since I know after almost 40 years I have been in music what I want out of the music I write. Others may say different and that's okay. But hey, if someone else handles it, it wouldn't be my music with their fingerprint on it . I hope that all who listen are blessed by what they hear.
