Adele won the trifecta last night at the Grammy’s: Record, Song, and Album of the Year.

I have two albums under my belt, Dog and Bird, and Hill Studio Sessions. But this one is taking a big leap forward, something I’m very excited about.

Writing lyrics and music is a creative Goliath that’s hard to wrestle into a winning album. It’s a pretty unique two-fold project. But mastering the art of coupling the right words to the right melody is something that I don’t mind working my whole life at.
