Simply be yourself.
The best way to make a difference using your music is…be yourself! If you show the world who you really are through your songs, you will appear more real and genuine, and people will take a liking to you.
Talk about issues that matter.
You could use your song lyrics as a way to express your thoughts, ideas and opinion on issues that are relevant. Whether you want to try to raise awareness about social issues (such as homelessness, equality and environmental protection) or share your political ideas, songs are often a powerful way to leave a mark and make a difference, by inspiring others. Many relevant artists, including U2, Bob Dylan or John Lennon, are well-known for their use of music to express their social and political ideas and sharing their values with a broad international audience. You might not be Lennon just yet, but anyone can inspire people through a good song!
