066 Why I Am – How Dave Matthews Band nailed the creative journey in a song

The creative journey can feel like two sides of a coin at the same time. On one hand we are in control and flying high, at the same time we’re confused, frustrated, and unable to find a way to make the two sides match. 


In the song “Why I Am” from the album ‘Big Whiskey and the Groo Grux King’, Dave Matthews Band sums up the duality of creativity beautifully. Especially in the line ‘Till I was slave and master at the same damn time.’.
