Quotes by Shania Twain

Shania Twain: Canadian-born Singer & Songwriter

“I was always very bold and straightforward about what I thought and my point of view about things as a woman, particularly. My point of view in relationships, the way I felt that woman should be treated, respected, and I still feel the same way. So, I’m just going to carry on with that message.” Shania Twain, Singer & Songwriter


“You have to put everything else aside in order to build a career. I never wanted to be a mother that was absent and distracted by career.” Shania Twain, Singer & Songwriter

“I am going to make my own decisions in life, and I’m going to make my own way. I’m not going to depend on anyone else. The minute you depend on somebody else, you lose something. You lose the right to decide for yourself. You’ve just got to go for it… Taking the risks to do things your way can be scary. So, you’ve got to be brave.” Shania Twain, Singer & Songwriter


“You have to work three times as hard as the average guy in country music, in order to get a shot. To be relentless was the only way.” Shania Twain, Singer & Songwriter


“The fact that I was now writing for the purpose of recording my own music was the dream. That was the dream I went to Nashville to find… but didn’t find it right away.” Shania Twain, Singer & Songwriter

“Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories. And the longer a song has existed in our lives, the more memories we have of it.” ~Stevie Wonder


“Melody is to music what a scent is to the senses: it jogs our memory. It gives face to form, and identity and character to the process and proceedings. It is not only a musical subject, but a manifestation of the musically subjective. It carries and radiates personality with as much clarity and poignancy as harmony and rhythm combined. As such a powerful tool of communication, melody serves not only as protagonist in its own drama, but as messenger from the author to the audience.” ~Marcus Paus, Music Composer

Quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda

“Making words rhyme for a living is one of the great joys of my life… That’s a superpower I’ve been very conscious of developing. I started at the same level as everybody else, and then I just listened to more music and talked to myself until it was an actual superpower I could pull out on special occasions.” ~Lin-Manuel Miranda


“The music you love when you’re a teenager is always going to be the most important to you…” ~Lin-Manuel Miranda


“I like to separate the music- and lyric-writing processes if I can. I’ll sort of noodle around on my keyboard and my computer until I have a beat or a chord progression. I’ll record it as a loop, export it to iTunes, then walk around the loop and sort of talk to myself in the loop, and that’s how I get the lyrics.” ~Lin-Manuel Miranda


“The fun for me in collaboration is, one working with other people just makes you smarter, that’s proven.” ~Lin-Manuel Miranda

Quotes by Mark Ronson

“I knew I wanted to be in music, but I didn’t know my role, so I did everything from interning at Rolling Stone to writing heavy metal fanzines to playing in a high-school band, and I think all those things probably helped in a way.” Mark Ronson


“I’d been DJ-ing in these clubs in New York and I hated everything that was coming out. So, I decided I would make it myself. People were making mashups or remixes, but I was extra bored, so I actually started remaking these records from scratch.” Mark Ronson


“I’d be saying, No, I’m so not a DJ, I’m a producer. But no matter how much faith you may have in yourself, until you have a hit, you can’t really run around telling everyone you’re a producer.” Mark Ronson

Quotes by Marvin Gaye

“I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don’t quite know how to explain it but it’s there. These can’t be the only notes in the world, there’s got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys.” ~Marvin Gaye

“I need hit songs; matching great songs with great artists and bringing them back to success.” ~Clive Davis


“In this tough business, you can never really rest on your laurels. If you’re an artist, you have to keep at the cutting edge. You have to come up with hit after hit. And if you’re an executive like me, you have to keep re-inventing yourself going from rock to pop to urban crossover to street.” ~Clive Davis

You Send Me by Sam Cooke


“You know, as a singer grows older, his conception goes a little deeper because he lives life, and he understands what he’s trying to say a little more. I think if a singer tries to find out what’s happening in life, it gives him a better insight on feeling the story of the song he’s trying to sing.” ~Sam Cooke
