I've spent my life butting my head against other people's lack of imagination.
I write a lot, and very often I write a couple of lines that are particularly revealing in some kind of way. And then as a few more lines get added and a piece gets added, eventually the song pretty much takes over and you can't really find a way to change those things.
The big problem with songwriting for me is starting a new song. It's the thing where all the anguish exists, not in the writing of the song, but the starting of the new song.
I see it as my duty in some way is to be out in the world as an Australian putting forward what I consider to be authentic Australian music.
