I got re-inspired to write songs for a few reason. My life circumstances changed but more than that was 2 singer/songwriters I stumbled across. Both were female singer/songwriters from NYC. Jaymay and Ingrid Michaelson. There lyrics are raw and real and sent me back to the drawing board to write again.
