  1. 1. Do you sing, play an instrument or instruments? Yes - I have played piano for around 10 years with lessons. Also the tiniest bit of bass guitar (not enough to even make me a beginner!) I sing in choirs but I don't think my voice is very good at the moment, am looking to get singing lessons sometime in the near future. 2. Are you in a band or bands? Not any touring bands as such, but I take part in the jazz band at university. 3. Do you write songs? I write songs, both music and lyrics. I find lyrics are definitely the harder of the two. Do you have a writing partner? No, but I have a small circle of friends who I share my music with. 4. Do you record your music? Yes, though not very well. At the moment only my instrumental (solo piano) compositions get recorded, though when I start singing I would like to properly record some of my songs. Do you use a home studio? If so what gear do you use? Yes, though at the moment I'm pretty much a beginner at the whole recording/production side of music. At home I have my dad's scarlett 2i4, an iMac and a Roland FP40 keyboard. Do you use a recording studio? No. Do you have music available on the web? if so where? I have a YouTube channel where I upload my finished compositions (the ones which have been recorded). There are quite a few I haven't recorded so aren't on there. Also featured are a lot of my old Garageband songs which I made when I was younger. Just so I don't keep coming back and editing them. If you want to have a look here is the link. 5. What other roles do you perform in the music business? None (I am a university student, studing Music and German) 6. Are you a tech head? Not really. It's something I might want to get into the future 7. What country do you live in? England (UK) 8. What are your ambitions? Long term goal: I would love to be able to be my own music artist and release whatever my hearts desire, bound by no genre but my imagination. I would like to have the pipes to carry my own tunes and the skills to take whatever I hear in my head and churn out a finished piece of music, whether that be on a score or a DAW. Shorter term: I would like to work on combatting my perfectionism, which has for years prevented me from finishing as much music as I would have liked to. Finishing one piece/song at a time and slowly building up a portfolio of music. 9. Do you draw/paint/write stories/computer art/dance or other creative pursuits? Not currently. What are your pastimes? German (half of my university course alongside music, so probably a bit more than a pastime!) Genealogy i.e. (family history) and the occasional bit of photography. 10. What would you like to get out of Songstuff? I'm using this as a motivator to really combat my perfectionism and practise my lyric writing. By reading everyone else's lyrics and giving/receiving feedback I hope to open my eyes to new possibilities in the process of lyric writing - better than sitting behind a piano waiting for inspiration to strike.
