The Lighthouse and the Whaler

How do you guys write your music (the musical aspect as well as the lyrical aspect)? Also, where do you usually get your inspiration?

We write very collaboratively as one production team. Typically Michael or someone will have an idea--usually a piece of the song. Then we will all expound upon that idea together--trying different instruments and parts as we go. Over time a song is formed, but not without a lot of trial and error. Lyrically--Michael writes all the lyrics for this band.

Regarding where we get our inspiration.....well my friend, that is a difficult question to answer because first of all their our four of us collaborating on the writing and then their are endless ways to be influenced and inspired. However, whenever we discuss our inspirations with each other it comes down to a couple things. We are inspired by each other---our friendships and what that means to us. Then among that we are inspired by our families, the love of Jesus Christ, and are ongoing life experiences. Thanks for listening to our music and thank you for the questions! Blessings to you hannahoh919!
