I saw an older EPK of an artist that Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced some years ago. Her name is Lisa Keith. In an interview she said that Terry Lewis encouraged her to write her own songs. At the time, she was just a vocalist she had not ventured into songwriting. She said that Terry said, “If you can talk, you can write lyrics. If you can sing, you can write melodies.” I love that quote. To me it means that you don’t have to overthink it and put pressure on it, just do what you feel.
