Welcome to BuzzMusic Papa Fresco! What can you tell us about your track “Whatever It Takes”? What does this project represent for you?
“Whatever It Takes” is a song about the anxiety and depression of wondering if you’re good enough. Whether it's being good enough for somebody, a dream or a passion you may have, really any part of life where you may question yourself. All the while not changing or losing yourself because of that worry and doubt. But staying true to you and trying your best, because that’s all we really can do, try our best.
With two EP’s in one year and another full-length project on the way, how do you stay on track to write so consistently?
