Hiya!

Hiya,

 

After having a quarterlife crisis and feeling like I've wasted my life I've decided to do something about it. My aim is to learn to sing (currently having lessons) and write and/or produce some cool stuff. 

 

I came to the realization I prefer to write down how I feel and my issues instead of speaking to people so may as well try to do something with it 😀.

 

Thanks

Liv

Hey Liv!

 

Great to meet you! Welcome to Songstuff!

 

Hopefully we can help you on your journey. What sort of artists are your musical heroes? Who would be your influences?

 

Cheers

 

John

Hi John,

 

I would say i'm a bit of a mix as my top 4 artists/groups at the moment are 5 Seconds of Summer, Trivium, Axel Johansson and Koven so a bit of a mix of pop, metal , drum & bass and EDM. Its quite a mix up to be honest but its enjoyable.

 

Thanks

Liv

Hi Olivia,

 

That's great motivation - I remember going through a similar thing myself. Hopefully you'll soon find the area that really brings you joy - for some it's lyric writing, some singing, interpreting songs, others production etc - but as soon as you find your lane you can really start flying (to mix the metaphors a bit!).

I felt a joy after my first singing lesson that I realised I haven't felt in a while. I have a few idea for songwriting but trying to make it work. I'm more scared for it to be bad and come across childish if that makes sense but I can't be too hard on myself as I've never done it before.

I wouldn't worry about songs being bad - just carry on with complete abandon! As Ernest Hemmingway said - write drunk, edit sober. You have to write a whole slew of material to get anything remotely passable sounding; it might take 10, 100, or 1000 songs to come up with 1 really good one - but that's still one more than most people will ever write!

mix up = eclectic.  Nothing wrong with it. :)

 

Enjoy the process.

That's my plan. I've come to the understanding that at the moment there is no end date and I don't have to rush anything.
