Haircut One Hundred Quotes
What I mean is I'd rather be a Burt Bacharach figure, where if I did gigs there'd be other people there singing the songs. I just don't want to promote myself as an artist if you like. I've been writing loads and loads of songs and I want to feed them out and produce artists. But I have to do that from a center. There has to be a structure. It has to be from a company that has an image, that has a name.
I don't want to pigeon-hole myself into a singer, songwriter, solo artist in that way. I've started to write and produce with people. I really do find that nurturing. It's a pleasurable experience. Not just with anyone, but I've been working with Mark Owen who used to be in Take That. And he did an album last year called Green Man with (producer) John Leckie. Really good album and I've been working with him. A real juxtaposition of people, and I've been learning from everyone. And I'd like to start up my own record company and really start off from the basics that everybody seems to forget, which is songwriting. I'd like to gather just some really naturally gifted songwriters.
