I struggle with this.
How much should I create?
How much time should I spend per composition?
I don’t really have an answer.
The more songs I write the better my music is both compositionally and lyrically.
But, I also don’t want to publish crap.
Performing is also really important. Live performance is the best feedback loop I’ve ever come across. Shares and comments are great, but there’s nothing like owning a room–making the talking voices stop and centering everything around the moment.
That’s where the magic is. When I have a song that captivates I know it’s a good tune.
The most important part is to create.
Always be creating.
Always seek to push the ball forward.
