Hey Friends -
Welcome to the Artist Development Newsletter.
Every Sunday, I send an email providing actionable tips for artists and industry on one area of the music business.
Last week, we talked about Music Business Management 101, which highlighted taxes.
You can re-read last week’s newsletter here if you want to refresh.
Today, something more on the creative side.
Let’s go — ->

I’ve been reminded recently that there is truly inspiration hiding everywhere we look.
Songs, waiting to be written.
Here are 4 examples from the last 2 weeks:
When inspiration hits, you’ve gotta dive in.
Tom Petty had this to say about songwriting:
“It just comes out of the air. It’s kind of a dangerous business looking really deeply into the germ that creates songs. I don’t like too stare in that light for very long y’know, I get a little superstitious about it.”
“There’s some kind of actual magic going on there, and for some reason, I feel like I was born with some kind of conduit for this energy, force or whatever it is, and I can have that happen through me. At the funniest times, something can come into your head, and you think, that’s a good line or that’s a good couple of lines. Then it’s just trial and error.”
Keep your antenna tuned into what’s going on around you and when something catches your attention, give it attention back with your unique perspective.
Before you know it, you’ll have something new to share with the world.
See you next Sunday!
