Ignore my rambling…

When listening to other people’s music I can’t help but feel like my music is lame and that in order for it to not be lame I need to sound more like whatever it is that I’m listening to. This thinking is flawed, I know it’s flawed even as I’m thinking it. If I changed my sound to more neatly sit alongside other peoples music it would cease to be my music and become something soulless and unrepresentative of the artist - me. I try and convert these thoughts into inspiration instead; it’s not always successful but what else can I do?
