I listen to a lot of artists. One of my favorite songs is “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Prince. I also find myself listening to songs written by Stephen Sondheim really often. I grew up in the nineties and I think the singer who really spoke to me when it came to the music thing was Brandy. Her voice was and still is crazy to me. Another person whose music I fell in love with in high school is Tank, another great R&B artist. Hearing his emotion play through on every song really keeps me in a moment.
There’s nothing like the feeling in it and I notice many good things in the music of both veterans and newcomers, whether it be the voice, the lyrics, the creativity-a lot of it is good and a lot of it is something to pay attention to. Saying that, I hope that people who hear what I’m working on feel like I’m also a creative to pay attention to.
