Hi Jason! We love your track “Lately”! Can you start by telling us what inspired you to write this song?
So I started dating this girl my freshman year of college and we dated all four years. The whole deal, same friend groups, family vacations and talks of the future. When I moved to Nashville she stayed in Colorado and we eventually broke up. After some hard but much needed months apart we randomly ran into each other right after Christmas. After our one night together I started thinking about all of the times we had together, and how after all this time we were still madly in love.
What was your ultimate goal and vision for the song? What do you want listeners to take away from it?
When I made the beat, specifically the hook right after the chorus it was the one song where I was like “this is the exact song I’ve been trying to write for my whole life” it just felt young and alive and it’s the exact sound I wanted! I want people to really feel their youth when listening.
How do you feed your passion for music everyday?
I surround myself with music everyday. Whether that’s listening, making beats, writing songs or just humming melodies into my voice notes. I always try to outdo my last song with whatever new song I release.
In what ways do you personally relate to the lyrics in “Lately”?
It’s very personal to me. Sometimes songwriters write relatable or catchy lyrics to fuel the song but really they are just broad statements. Every lyric in lately actually happened in real life. I can visualize each moment. It’s pretty cheesy but it means so much to me because it is so specific.
In what ways have your songwriter/producing abilities changed and improved over the years?
I’ve just learned a lot more. I have always had the ear for it but I’ve trying to hoan I’m on my skills and get better. Honesty is the most important key to writing a song! I also spend time with writers and producers who are worlds ahead of me so that inspires me get better to not stay in one place creatively.
