Ask Nick Johns anything...
Q: So what do you think of the question section:)... What is your inspiration when you write.
A: I think this section is a great idea.. Inspiration to write comes in many ways and forms.. if i'm passionate about something like politics or wrong doings, I generally put it down on paper.. sometimes it can take weeks or months to finish a song.. and other times it might only take an hour or so.. funny stuff!!! I started writing a song once and gave up on it.. only to find it a year later, read it and it took about half an hour to finish.. 8-) I generally write about life experiences.. my song "Passengers" is simply about getting into bed with too many thoughts in your head, and not being able to sleep.. "Beneath The Burning Sun" is politically driven and speaks for itself.. Inspiration comes from emotion.. happiness, sadness, anger, depression, hatred and love.. along with all the other feelings us crazy humans feel.. And the end result is alot of stories told in songs.. 8-) Thanks for your question.. cheers Nick
