Tell me about your creative process. How do you approach songwriting?
I will very often start with some chords or a vocal, and then construct around that. I¹ll insulate that with some sort of chords that will harmonize it, and from there I take a step back to see what I¹m really working with. Have I got something melodic? Can I expand on it before throwing a beat in there? Does it need a bassline? It all branches out from there.
