News Interview with J.R.

We at Build The Song had the honor of sitting down with J.R. to discuss his experience in songwriting, his methods, and his intent when trying to create a great song.  Here’s the interview.

BTS: What was the reason you started writing songs?

JR: I started writing when I was 9 years old, and had been playing piano and singing since I was 4 or 5 years old. My Father and Grandfather were songwriters and I wanted to start writing my own songs instead of just singing other people’s songs. I love songwriting now, it’s become very cathartic for me.

BTS: What was the first song you ever wrote about?

JR: I was eight years old and it was a song called “Diesel” about a truck or something like that. It seemed cool at the time. (laughs)
