Music's always been really cathartic. It's the best drug for me to get away from the everyday pressures just for a second via a good song.
Music's always going to evolve, and we can't really stop that, so we have to figure out what's the next thing and how we move towards that as opposed to just being like, 'Oh, cool: let's just continue making tear-out EDM hits that are gonna last 2 months, and then somebody else is making the exact same thing under a different name.'
Music's always part of my writing. I think all art is interconnected. You can't create or experience one without its influences bleeding into another. In my writing, music's mostly something that feeds my inspiration and mood while I'm writing, but it's also taught me how to score scenes and even novels. The rise and fall of the storyline echoes the flow of a good piece of music.
Music's another big love of mine.
Music's been a huge passion of mine since I was really young. I started playing guitar when I was thirteen.
Music's been around a long time, and there's going to be music long after Ray Charles is dead. I just want to make my mark, leave something musically good behind. If it's a big record, that's the frosting on the cake, but music's the main meal.
Music's been with me from the get-go. It was always around me as a kid. Dad got me my first guitar when I was 11 and, at school, if you wanted to be cool you had to be in a band.
Music's cyclical. There's always that next generation that always comes along.
Music's designed to be timeless.
Music's my medication.
Music's not like becoming a doctor, who can walk into a community and find people who need him.
Music's something that I really wasn't pushed into, it was something I just kinda chose, I just kept pushing myself, and it was all down to me.
Music's something you feel. You have to feel it first before you hear it.
Music's staying power is a function of how timeless the lyrics, song and production are.
Music's supposed to be real. When it really touches you, it's supposed to be real.
Music's supposed to come from the heart. I felt like that if it ever got mechanical, I was going to back away from it.
Music's the best thing we do as humans, isn't it? Music, I mean you flail your limbs, make you move in a way you don't understand. Or it can make you weep like a sailor's wife staring at a storm.
Music's the one thing I try not to analyze. I don't want to destroy the magic that has always been there for me.
Music's the soundtrack of my life and has been since I was a teenager. There's always music. If I'm not playing it, I'm listening to it. With my writing... sometimes it inspires a story, sometimes it highlights something I'm working on, sometimes it simply helps me stay in the narrative mood.
