On the song selection approach for their new CD, he said, “With this particular album, the selection process was a bit unconventional because the project changed a few times while we were recording. Initially, we were just going to release a six-song EP, and that turned into us just releasing into singles, and then into a full-length. Because of that, we wrote a lot of songs along the way and within the recording process.”
At the moment, his personal favorite song from the album is “June.” “It’s just simple and genuine and completes the album perfectly,” he said.
On their plans for the future, he said, “We are hoping to tour quite a bit in the next year or so. And definitely work on some more music.”
Regarding his songwriting inspirations, he said, “I think it changes from song to song. We do write songs from personal experience but sometimes they are based on concepts or just words or phrases that feel like good song titles.”
Digital transformation of the music business
On the impact of technology on the music business, he said, “It has made music much more accessible but also has made it more important to interact with those who support you. We try to take that to heart and be intentional about that part of what we do as much as we can.”
Regarding his use of technology in his daily routine as a singer-songwriter, he said, “Lyrics are all over my phone. Notes, voice memos, everywhere. I definitely could be more organized about it.”
For their fans, he concluded, “This album for us represents an acknowledgment of although we are not always exactly where we want to be all the time; we aren’t anxious or discouraged about the future. Sometimes, speaking things into existence can make them true and for us, we are speaking ‘I’m not worried anymore’ into existence. This record feels like our best body of work so far and we are confident that it is something that people want to hear even if they don’t know it yet.”
