Ask Jeffrey Horn anything...
Q: what inspires your songs?
A: I draw inspiration from a variety of sources: nature, personal relationships, the internet, everyday stuff, (past and present)social issues... sometimes I will read a story or a poem or maybe part of a book and really get into the specifics of what or how a character might feel. In a way it is a process a lot like recycling. I take little bits and pieces of life and art around me and create something new from it. And then there are also times when I just want to do something totally different and new and fresh from what I've written in the past. It's a lot like keeping a diary or journal for me. It's also a lot like breathing for me... I don't remember ever not being a songwriter. And although it is nice when others appreciate my art... it is not about fame or money for me. There's enough of that out there already. I have to be authentic with my art... it is just part of who and what I am.
