Submit Question
Q: Who writes the lyrics in the band?
A: Lyrics are written by both Deborah and Matthew, sometimes one of them writes a complete song, but not always. Out of the last four songs, Deborah has written all the lyrics for two, Matt wrote the lyrics for one and they jointly wrote the lyrics for the fourth with Matt driving the theme of the song forward. Commonly though they both listen to the same piece of music and think of a theme and go away and write their own verse melody and lyrics and see if they work together either as a call and response or sung at the same time, two melodies together with different lyrics.
