Keys to Songwriting
How does Jeremy personally write?
Capture anything and everything.
After he captures, he goes through the process of revisiting his inspiration.
If it doesn’t move him the second time he deletes it.
After he revisits, he starts to bring all the parts together to make the song.
Make a demo.
Lyrics are the last thing he writes.
It’s about finding your message. (lyrics)
Become a student great writing
Develop your language
Dig deep. Don’t be so satisfied with your first draft
Listen to your spirit
Allow the process
Sing over your own struggles
You have to learn to serve someone else's vision.
It’s important that everyone is happy (that includes you)
Write from your heart.
Allow your songs to be critiqued. Allow yourself to sit with it. Don’t immediately reject it.
You have to believe in the fruit of the process of writing.
