Megan Wolery Interview

Artist Interviews Add comments

Megan Wolery (18) has been involved in music from an early age. A singer and multi-instrumentalist, Megan recently became serious about developing her songwriting skills.

You have been using Lilac Writer for a while now. What role does Lilac Writer play in your songwriting process?

Lilac Writer plays a very important role in my songwriting process. I have notebooks full of ideas that I've quickly scribbled down. With Lilac Writer, I can start a song, throw some ideas in there, have a rhyming dictionary (which is one of my favorite part about the program!) and finish a song very quickly. Everything is organized and it's so easy to use. I love it!

You obviously have talent and experience as a singer, but what got you interested in songwriting?

I started writing songs when I was in 7th grade, just for fun, and most of them made no sense at all! It wasn't until the start of this year that I picked up the pen and started writing more mature songs (that actually made sense!). I never thought I was very good at it, but the more I wrote, the better I got, and the more my friends started to like them. I think it was making that transition to college that sparked some new song ideas.

Do your songs go through phases of re-writes?

Definitely! I have never had a song that was complete in one draft. I think that it's good to go through a song once or twice to make some changes. I usually play my second or third draft to my friends and hear what they have to say.

What makes a song great?

The ones that are extremely personal grab my attention. Making sure that your song can reach out to people is so important! One thing I do when writing songs is talking to people - find out what's on their mind. There is a song I'm almost done with that is about things that make people sad like not finding love or losing a family member.  It's okay to be sad and someone out there cares about them, so everything will be alright in the end. It comes from stories and lives of my close friends, and so far, it seems to be one of the best songs I've written!
