A Musician's Responsibility

I believe that musicians, as much as any other artists, have a responsibility to help people reflect on life.  Most people know what’s going on, but they may not have thought about why.  A good song helps them find words to describe things, and/or helps them think through the reasons.  Songs should help people see bigger issues, deeper issues, different ways, better ways.  A good song will help the listener identify a similar feeling in their own life and then help them deal with it. 

A good song is hard to write.  Songs worth covering are hard to find.  It’s worth the effort.
