I was 15 when I heard my first Coldplay song. A couple of friends were raving about them, and the first song they played was “Fix You”. Of course I wanted to hear more, so for Christmas that year my mom bought me all of their albums.
I think listening to a band that iconic made me want to create music that spoke deeply to others the way the Beatles did to me. It wasn’t just the words. It was the carefully crafted melodies that took me on a journey with every song. Every note felt so intentional - like it fulfilled its purpose by the end.
