SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
With musician Matt Cairns, we explore how we see our inspiration through to its completion by understanding every step of the process and not getting hung up on nailing it right away.  Songwriting, screenwriting and other manners of art are brought together in some universal principles.

POINT #1: “SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE”
-Starting with the simple point of inspiration is where it all begins whether it’s a four-chord melody or a story about a plane crashing in the desert, keeping things simple allows us to keep it manageable, move forward, and refine in the future.

POINT #2: “NOTHING’S PERFECT, IT’S PROCESS”
-As artists, we often measure our work up to the greatest before we’ve really given ourselves a chance.  No work was ever amazing or perfect right away, they all took time and had many faults of their own before becoming something remarkable.

POINT #3: “DON’T GIVE UP”
-People rarely fail at anything, but they do give up.  Our commitment is often the biggest deciding factor in our success commercially.  Stay connected to what you love and keep going!
