Describe your sound in 3 words
Groove Oriented Rock
Tell us a few things about your new song “Fame Falls Away”. What is the story behind it?
I wrote the song 10 years ago when I was in high school about the incredible friends I had in my life. As I grew and I started playing more shows outside of my hometown, the song became a staple in my live sets as a tribute to those times and friends I love so dearly! The song was produced by Chris Jennings of Stardust Productions Int’l and features the incredible QuesMark.
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
My most personal lyric is in my song “Sweet Tooth”, Its a lively song about live concerts and entertainment. The line that means the most to me is, “The show is over/ all things must pass/ take this feeling home with you/ forever It shall last” I love the idea that the art doesn’t end simply because the music stops. The feeling we get when we lose ourselves is joyful and can live with us beyond the confines of the music hall.
Favourite album of all time?
Born to Run or Sgt. Pepper are the greatest in my opinion. They both shaped who I am as a person and an artist.
Your music has lovely grooves. Tell us a song with a groove you wish you had composed yourself.
There is a Bill Withers song called “Kissing My Love” that has such a sweet pocket. Also a lot of Stevie Wonder’s music or the classic motown. oh! Or “Rosanna” that shuffle is iconic!
What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?
I watched “Peanut Butter Falcon” and that was a fantastic movie!
When was the last time you danced?
I like to listen to a radio station from New Orleans as I get ready for work in the morning and occasionally they’ll play some stuff that REALLY swings, like the kinda swing we just don’t hear anymore, and a few days ago I found myself grooving around the kitchen as I was making breakfast
