Thank you for joining us at BuzzMusic Andy Penkow, we truly appreciate such an uplifting and encouraging track like "Before I Go." What inspired you to create a single that touches on keeping your dreams alive and checking experiences off your bucket list?
My love of music and the career that I've worked so hard for. I wanted this song to be a reminder of what I want to achieve in my life, and I was hoping that whoever is listening to it can also relate it to their own dream.
What was it like working with producer Rod Motbey for "Before I Go?" How did he help bring the song's sonic emotion and passion to life?
I have a lot of respect for Rod. We have worked together on many projects now. He has a really great way of understanding what I want to achieve, adding his own flavor but still keeping the song authentic to my vision. We are currently working on a 14 track album that will hit radio early next year.
How did you want the listener to feel after listening to "Before I Go?" What sort of emotions or thoughts did you want to evoke?
I want them to sing along, anywhere, any age, no matter what music they like or what their dreams are, this song is for all the dreamers out there.
Do you normally write such optimistic and uplifting songs like "Before I Go?" Should we expect you to continue releasing songs that leave the listener feeling inspired?
I have got a name for myself in the country scene for writing a lot of sad love songs which i'm happy to have. But I want to stretch myself and my art so I'm really starting to look outside the box.
On a more personal note, why do you think your music has been so successful and prosperous? What makes you stand out from other independent alt-country singer-songwriters?
I think I have something different to offer the country scene. My style and sound are very much my own and I've tried my best to be true to myself as an artist and human. That's the best way to be in life, as no one can do you better than you can. My fans really do get behind me and that's just amazing as I have so much more to offer, this is just the beginning for me.
