John Keller on Songwriting

“My advice to songwriters is to keep learning, keep studying and don’t go into it to become rich, because you’ll be most often disappointed. Do it because you love what you’re doing. The uncertainty of the music business is what drives people crazy. But the high you get when you do write something good is like nothing else."

"Here's a pretty good conversation about my process with Gordon Pogoda at SongTalk.
