A tale I heard
Scott Hutchison, former lead-singer of Frightened Rabbit, speaking in 2018 about the satisifaction of people saying they relate to his lyrics:
"That’s the whole point in a lot of ways. Obviously the songs are quite personal, but there has to be a way in. So once a person talks to me and says that they not only found a way in, but lived within a song or album for a really long time, that’s fantastic to hear. It’s amazing how personal people are willing to be, with how open they are to me. Because I guess my voice has been coupled with a lot of their worst times and it’s helped. So I think it’s often seen as a friend in those times. But I’m really, really pleased when anyone says that something I have done has helped them. You know, you can’t knock that."
