Life and Lyrics
By BBC Radio
Two singers share how personal experience has shaped their song lyrics - from escaping a bad relationship, to long night shifts.
Jackie thought she'd found the man of her dreams, but his behaviour soon became suffocating - and even when they split, he wouldn't leave her alone. She now hopes her music will help empower other women in the same situation.
Spencer Flay has used the isolation of his crane cabin - 30 metres above sea level - to hone his song writing and ukulele playing skills.
Presented and produced by Becca Bryers - with additional production from Shivani Dave. With thanks to BBC Radio Bristol and Juno Women's Aid.
