Songwriting is not for the faint of heart, especially if you're a perfectionist.  I'm not saying that my songs are perfect, but I definitely am one that strives for perfection in everything I do.  My wife can attest to the many sleepless nights leading up to the recording sessions, where I am constantly re-composing.  Thank goodness for the NOTES app on the iPad I keep next to my bed.  I am so driven to perfection that I've been known to change lyrics at the very last minute in the sound booth, just prior to laying down a lead vocal track.  Aside from the glamour, glory and gratification usually associated with songwriting, it really is a lot of work, but it's definitely a labor of love.  My 2022 song, Troubadour, offers a glimpse into how I see myself as a writer.
