Keaton Henson Presents: On The Job

London, 13.09.16

Though the working artist is the same as everyone else, the creative life does seem to carry with it a unique pay off, a push and pull of unrelenting disappointment, mirrored by the euphoria of the creative fix, of feeling loved and understood. This feeling can become addictive to those with the kind of brain that wants to create in the first place, and as you proceed to make this practise your work, the fix becomes harder to reach. I have always been fascinated by songs about being a songwriter. and have become moreso since discovering what it means to be one, and how easily the hole you once filled with songs, can gape wider than ever with the loss of that feeling of being found.
