The Krayolas: “We’re making money, making royalties thanks to BMI, because we have taken the steps to get organized with our music and get the music the respect it deserves.”
Marty Stuart: “We all begin by being inspired by somebody else. But at the end of the day, a good song has to come from your own heart, and from your own perspective. I encourage all young writers to be fearless.”
David Newman: “I don’t wait around for an idea or inspiration. I start working and inspiration comes.”
iZLER: “Musicians are artists first. You can’t be a film composer until you’re an artist.”
