What inspired you to write this particular track?
It's hard to pin down what inspired it. The lyrics all hit me in a flash. I did a very little editing.
When did you realize your love of performing?
Probably around 16 or 17 when I started playing local clubs around Michigan.
Have you always known that music was the right career for you?
Not so much career (at this point) but passion project for sure.
What does a typical songwriting session look like for you? Do you typically start with lyrics or a general melody/sound?
Most usually it starts with a little guitar hook and a strong theme I can riff on lyrically. I write mostly alone, but I have been co-writing a lot more lately. My next single coming out after this was written by two incredible writer friends along with myself.
You spent a long time performing covers across the country, who would you say is your biggest inspiration musically?
Bob Marley. Kurt Cobain. Paul & John etc
Are there any new projects we can look forward to following “Good As Gold”? An album perhaps? More singles. More Videos. A great live set in 2020. :) maybe a grammy? :)
