The singer and producer explains how songs can be written from various perspectives – such as religious perspectives, cultural and societal perspectives , and personal perspectives, which are influenced by the other three perspectives.
He teaches that the listening audience will appreciate your music when you define your message.
“The first step is what do I want to write and who am I writing for, once you’re able to get to that place where you underline the fundamental factor, then you have crossed the first bridge, if you do this last, there’s every tendency you’ll not do well.”
