Scoop on that thing called Music:

Melodies, thoughts, words, chords, MUSIC, is a part of our what we breathe, our existence. Songwriting is just a matter of putting those pieces together, making it into something that can be digested by the human mind. A channeling of energy, a way to enable people to meet on a different level than the everyday human life might portray. A way to touch and connect, to feel and be felt.¬† A very lovely thing…
