‘Truth is all that I had to offer in my music’
English singer Lily Allen (left) has advice for female songwriters who hope to break into the music scene. “Get to know yourself, because people will always connect to truth and honesty when it comes to music,” says Allen, adding that being honest with her music is what made her a successful artist. “As long as I honed my craft and made sure I was being as truthful as possible it justified my art. Truth is all that I had to offer,” she says. The singer is happy to see that more girls are getting involved in songwriting and production, and says it’s “brilliant”.
