Probably Portishead at the Harvest Festival a few years back. So sweet, so wonderful.Where do you usually draw inspiration from as a writer? Do you have a process? eg music first, lyrics first etc
I love to draw inspiration from stories; fairy tales, video games, friends' stories, anything that captures my imagination. I often start with a single idea or theme (either musical or lyrical) and go from there.
