Lately I’m going through his phase where I sit down at the piano and decide that I have absolutely no talent whatsoever. It’s quite a pain in the ass. I don’t get anyting done. Yes, I deleted all my song lyrics, but it’s time to get over it. I still have some in notebooks and on sheets lying around. The only way to finish this stupidity is to listen to my musical crushes. So I spend time with Steely Dan, Diane Krall, Stina Nordenstam and others. It really works. I come up with new stuff almost at once. So hopefully during this week I’ll start doing something other than just warming up my voice and singing through Rose Darling three times before I hit my head against the wall for half an hour.
