We artists have the dignity to tell the truth to the people, unlike politicians.
It's a waste to not say anything with art.
The process is always the same. I get an inspiration for a new song, I put it down on paper immediately so I won't lose it. When I am ready to go to the studio with it, I play it a few times on the piano and edit, add, and type the lyrics and take it to the studio. Sometimes I don't have anything on paper.
A lot of things have been thrown at me in life, and I've got through it all without a rule book, taking it one day at a time.
