I posed a question some months ago asking if it was easier to cover a song or to sing your own song. To answer my own question:
In general, it’s easier for me to sing my own songs. Why? Because, I know all of the nuances of my own work, I can change it however I want without it being compared to the “original,” or anyone else who’s sang ti. It’ll also be written in a key I’m comfortable in and won’t have to change or work through.
With that said, I’m working on some original stuff right now. I have so much to sift through and edit, and I can’t wait to share it!
