Hello Chris and welcome to BuzzMusic. We genuinely appreciate the uplifting tones and feel of your latest single, "Heaven on Earth." What inspired you to pay tribute to our journeys here on earth while reminding listeners to have a little fun along the way?
Heaven on Earth was inspired by always trying to see the greater good. The world is a challenging place and being driven by positivity and the obvious passion to entertain without being able to do so I wanted to make a song that's upbeat, uplifting and reflected on what we can do and hopefully inspire more people to get out there and enjoy life our world is a beautiful place. I got to touch base on my personal life loading up the boat and driving out to the lake with good company "How bout that". Do they have sunsets and sunrises in Heaven !? lol, life is pretty sweet if you open your mind and heart to it. I do touch a little bit on being a lonely heart and still waiting for the girl of all my dreams haha I'd be lying if that line wasn't inspired by Ramble on. kind of my signature the song wouldn't be who we are without a little tongue and cheek lighthearted fun.
What was your collaborative process like with producer Chris Flores for your single, "Heaven on Earth?" How did the two of you fuel the instrumentals and sonics to uplift listeners?
I started my Journey with Big Chris Flores a few years ago but the pandemic brought us together. We have a great creative team and the best part about working together is we are not afraid to let our imagination free and play outside the rules and create a listening environment that makes people feel at Home and inspired as well. I reached out to Chris and shared the inspiration to do Heaven on Earth. We worked tirelessly together over a period of a few weeks developing the melodies that would bring the song to life. Chris took the song on and treated it 100% I can safely say we both fell deeply in love with the song. There were no deadlines or clocks; we put everything we possibly could into the Music.
What sets Heaven and Earth apart from a lot of other country music is we wanted this song to engage sonically with both listeners Rock and Country. I couldn't be happier to have such a great relationship with my producer. He is a wonderful human being and I couldn't imagine the song as powerful without him.
Does your music usually touch on rather inspirational and feel-good themes, similar to "Heaven on Earth?" Or do you tend to explore and switch up your themes and sounds from time to time?
We are known for our good timing and feel-good music. This would cover most of the music we create but we also do music that comes from very close and deep places to the heart. Hard to not Life has been one heck of a journey for me and this influences every song we create, making the music super personal and genuine.
Should we expect to hear "Heaven on Earth" on your forthcoming album, 'Shake It Up?' Does the single share or amplify any lyrical themes within the album?
We are not for certain how the Singles and Shake it up will collide just yet. The band is eager to perform again and get on the road.....We have lots in the works with Chris on our Team so stay tuned and yes absolutely the Single shares the theme with our upcoming Album.
