You know, when I first started I just knew I wanted everybody in the world to hear one song of mine. I thought of, like, This Land is Your Land by Woody Guthrie, and I thought "That’s the most amazing song, and everybody knows it, and that would be so amazing if people knew a song of mine."
If you’re ambitious, you have to be honest with your ambitions. You can be the best and the smartest and the cleverest and the most talented songwriter, but if you just assume that you don’t need to promote this song or whatever it is, that if you don’t feel the need to do that . . . if you get your own strength from hiding it away from the world, then no one is ever going to hear it and no one’s really going to care. So I’d say, like, just start off and be honest with yourself and say that the world needs to hear what you’ve got to say and you deserve to be able to go out there and show what you do.
