Touche Amore albumEvery artist draws on what they know, see and feel in order to create. From painters to sculptors to musicians, all will utilise their experiences, good and bad. Musicians who also write lyrics are often the artists who bare their souls in the most unadorned manner, and it's often a single, devastating event, such as the loss of a loved one, that prompts an outpouring of heartfelt lyrics.
