Hi! First off, I absolutely love your music and voice ! I love writing songs , whether or not they're good or not is debatable, but I was wondering how you match a melody to lyrics?

For me its often a little bit simultaneous. Honestly lately I've been struggling to come up with good new melodies, it helps me a lot to listen to totally different genres and styles...mainly jazz lately. Just to think outside the acoustic folk box. Sometimes I do write some lyrics with no tune in mind, then its a matter of finding the right chords to go underneath it, and just kinda start singing something and edit till its a nice melody. The best ones kind of seem to just get stuck in my head though. :) Cheers and good luck! It's all one song.
