We genuinely admire the passion and energy you've created with your single "Good For Me." When did you begin feeling inspired to write about a past love?
I appreciate that so much, thank you. It’s hard for me to answer that question as a married man because I’m very happy to not ever think about past relationships again. Honestly, it’s very hard for me to comprehend that I was ever with anyone else. So now when I write these types of songs, I try to think about what it would feel like to lose my wife. If I didn’t have her I’d definitely be the guy in that song.
Are you used to writing such vulnerable lyrics, similar to your words in "Good For Me?" Or is it challenging for you to open up?
It’s more difficult for me to write about surface topics actually! Vulnerability is my middle name.
Why did you want to make the instrumentals on "Good For Me" so lively and energetic, even though your lyricism is rather emotional?
I think those are the best types of songs. I think taking a lyrically melancholy song and turning it into a melody that makes you feel good is one of the hardest things to do. I want to take you to a place that is real, like our emotions are, but still make you drive with your windows down singing along.
How does "Good For Me" contrast your other releases? Do you usually write about certain concepts, or do you like to switch up your lyrical themes?
I have a history of writing sad songs, but I’m really just focused on writing universal emotions now. I wouldn’t say it’s any different in terms of feel. There’s still a ripping guitar solo and my unique sound. I just want to keep putting out music that is individually outstanding and memorable.
