The singer advised Apple Music she “simply began writing songs on guitar this yr” whereas engaged on her debut album SOUR.
“I used to be very piano based mostly. I used to be obsessive about Fiona Apple for some time and I used to be like, ‘I need to be like Fiona Apple and write all my songs on jazz piano’,” she shared.
Revealing: “However truly listening to Taylor… I’ve been so into Taylor this yr particularly. I’ve been listening to all of her previous stuff,” Rodrigo mused: “as a result of I really feel like Taylor is similar as me.”
The Driver’s License star defined: “Taylor doesn’t have this large breadth of music data. She doesn’t use loopy insane chords or bizarre progressions.”
She went on: “She makes use of the pop-country chords that everyone knows and love, however she does her personal factor with them and makes them her personal,” remarking: “In order that was actually inspiring to me, to be like, ‘Oh, however I can write these superb, unimaginable songs and I don’t should know what the relative minor seven of this chord is’.”
