COLIN HENDERSON

It's all in the songs...

​I've been lucky. I grew up at a time when great songwriters were everywhere. They still are. You know the ones; the writers who make you want to laugh, cry, dance, sing. The ones who seem to able to make you realise what you should be caring about, even when you're not. The ones who can turn a line and make you think 'ain't that the truth'. They marked out the path and I'm trying to follow it. Sometimes it's a magic carpet ride, sometimes it's a stumble in the dark.

 

All I ever do is try to be honest and true and find a way to put it all into words. Whether I succeed or not depends on who's listening. But if you want to know about me, it's all in the songs...
