The artistic gift is more widespread than we think, and it doesn’t need proof. Here’s to the convergence of all art forms!

Spanish musician Enrique Bunbury once expressed he felt more closely related to a chair-maker than he did to a classical composer.

The sentence had a profound impact on me because it made sense. It wasn’t something I had been able to explain after years of songwriting until I heard the…

I have believed for quite some time that most atrocious acts are often caused by the insecurities of the perpetrators.
