I went to university for a little while, after school, and met a whole new group of people, and some of them played guitar and...that's when I started to, you know, just pick up...chords and so on from them. And then, uh, one day, I can still remember, you know, when I was...21, I wrote a song. And...then I wrote another one. And then...it just felt...like a knack.

So...I write songs and imagine other voices quite often.
