Inspiration can hit at any point, and anything can be inspiring—people, nature, books, travel, sadness, a melancholy mood, or even your own thoughts. Without inspiration, you cannot be creative, and if you’re not creative, you cannot write an original piece.

Technology has always been influencing the way we live and do business, but its impact has become even greater in the 21st century. Today, new systems such as machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are reshaping entire industries and music is by no means an exception here.
AI represents a revolutionary technology that strongly impacts almost every field of life and work in the 21st century. The same goes for the music industry, which is why we wrote an article about its impact on modern composers, fans, and labels.
A songwriter is an expert whose main work is to write lyrics and melodies in songs. The songwriter profession, similar to other professions requires one to be creative, passionate and have a love for writing. A songwriter is also required to understand how to work with the latest music technology including computer sound editing, sequencers, and more.
A songwriter will create songs for other artist or bands for them to perform but the credits will remain his/hers.
Songwriters also partner with artist and other songwriters when it comes to creating materials for their shows.
To be a professional songwriter, you must be able to create lyrics and write melodies. There is huge a difference between a lyricist and a songwriter in that the former knows how to write lyrics but does not know how to write melodies. That means an artist will have to come up with their melody.
It has never been easier to chase your dream and make it come true than it is today. In the music industry, the sky is the only limit. All over the world, talented singers and songwriters succeeded to make a name for themselves even if they’ve started from scratch. Sia, Gaga, Eminem, Adele, and Ed Sheeran are great examples and reminders that if they could do it, so you can! All is left for you to do is to leverage the inspiration from their stories and write your song – your story.
