Congratulations on the release of your first EP! With that having released, have you immediately fixed your eyes on the production of a full-length album? The Good in People was actually started with the focus being a full-length studio album. That has been a big goal of mine for years, I hold the idea of a full-length debut album on a very high pedestal. I was actually three songs deep into the process when I decided to take a break. I went back into my home studio and wrote this EP. It was kind of a breath of fresh air. The studio process can be draining, both financially and mentally. I think I’m just so used to being my own engineer and such, working in somebody else’s studio can be hard. Especially when I want my debut album to be “perfect." So this is a long-winded way of saying, yes, I will be continuing work on my full length.
Where have you drawn your musical inspiration from in regards to the type of sound you're currently producing? Hmm, that’s tough. It’s never really a conscious thought. These songs just kind of come out of me. But subconsciously they’re definitely influenced by what I’ve been listening to lately and then of course just all of the influences that have stuck with me over the years. I love genre-blending. My production style has always been rooted in hip hop, and my guitar playing is definitely more pop-influenced. I really try not to chase somebody else’s sound. It’s never worked out. I just open up a new Logic project and let whatever’s in there come out. How did you come up with the name, "The Good In People?" Honestly, I was sitting at my desk and trying to think of a band name (a very hard thing to do), and I looked over at this notebook my mom had given me with all these heartfelt sayings on them. And one was “look for The Good in People.” And The Good in People just stuck with me. That saying is definitely something that hits home for me, and a message I would like to spread.
When you're writing lyrics, do you attribute some of them to your past life experiences, and if so, how has that impacted your writing as you've progressed? I attribute most of them to my past and present life experiences. I can’t help but write about how I’m feeling and the stuff I’m going through. I’ve tried to challenge myself more lately and write abstractly or about other things besides myself. But this record was kind of a return to form for me. I love writing about love. Especially since I’m currently in love, it’s something that comes very easily. Working on the full length has been draining, so this EP was kind of a break from that. I just didn’t want to think too much. I wanted to make a quick little pop record for me to kind of refresh my brain so I can get back to work on the album. Do you plan to continue as a frontman in the near future or has your focus been completely directed towards your solo venture?
I would like to tour these songs. The idea of hitting the stage by myself is terrifying, so I definitely need my buds up there with me. But my band fell apart after COVID so I need to assemble a touring band, but I would love to get back on stage and play these new tunes when live music is a thing again!
