Favourite lyricist? I don't think I could settle on just one so we'll just put Leonard Cohen/Lucinda Williams/Bob Dylan/Elvis Costello as the current stars in my songwriting sky. Reasons why ? I don't think you really need an explanation for any of those names eh?
Yes I am Canadian.
I've been on a spree of writing since cutting my hair off in the new year, they're all on my little LJ hideaway, some I like much more than others. Maybe even record some soon.
