The way I write my songs is that I have to believe what I’m writing about, and that’s why they always end up being so personal — because the kind of artists I like, they convince me, they totally win me over straight away in that thing. Like, “Oh my God, this song is totally about me.” I have to feel that about my own songs for me to be happy with them and to be able to let them go. So I think people can relate to them because I’m so honest in them. It’s warts and all in my songs, and I think that’s why people can relate to them. I don’t write songs about a specific, elusive thing. I write about love and everyone fucking knows what it is like to have your heart broken.

goo.gl/TBlKHj Beautiful #music lyrics such as Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ and dynamic arrangements like Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ inspire my blogging. In the words of John Legend “My love” for music is “passed the infatuation phase.” There’s something extraordinary about the #English sound of music.
