A lot of people, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and a lot of people have written for other people, and of course Bruno Mars. So I think it’s a great way to break into the industry and show people what you can do and show them your talent and people tend to listen a little differently to your own music as an artist, when you’ve proven yourself as a good songwriter for other artists.
I got called to write for Aerosmith, nothing ever came of it, but I ended up spending the day with Steven Tyler and going to his house and we sat down at the piano, just me and him, and he sang for me and played, then he asked me to sing for him, and then we sang harmony together. That was just a big moment where it was like ‘oh my god, my life is crazy!’ It was really cool.
