Lever FIVE: Find your voice

Songwriting can be an outlet for expressing ourselves and finding our voice

What it's all about?

"Each individual has a unique perspective on the world and our own story to tell. Keeping that thought in mind can be very motivating, particularly in times when we have self-doubt. 

If you’re songwriting, don’t worry about whether your lyrics are any good or not to begin with. Your job is to make a start and keep going, not to change the world. Everything can be adapted, improved, changed, etc. later on. Value even the ‘mistakes’. Play."

– Beccy Owen
