When creating art, in this case music, the hope is to get a message across. Sometimes, the best way is to say it out right. But in many cases, there’s so much more to be said when the message is packaged in a thoughtful way. This is especially true when it comes to lyrics. Writing lyrics that touch the heart, but at the same time, make you laugh and smile is a gift.
This is something Jerika Teodorico has shown time and time again when she writes a song. I could simply say that she is an award winning songwriter, but that would be selling her short. She has the ability to write music that can truly move you. Her songs make you smile, it make you laugh, and even cry (I learned from this interview that she seems to cry a lot). What more can we ask from art?
In this episode, we talked about how she crafts songs, the origins of many of her songs, where she started, and what she hopes to accomplish.
Enjoy the episode!
