Creativity is often described as an itch that must be scratched, and the relief afterwards yields art.

Lead singer for The Savage Radley, Shaina Goodman, says writing music is a need inseparable from the rest of her life. Goodman grew up in far-western Kentucky near the Mississippi River.

She has been writing since before she knew she was writing. But she doesn’t necessarily see it as a God-given gift. And, for her, the process of creation isn’t so linear.
