Thanks for joining us, Sean Keefer. With the release of your first-ever personalized single, titled "Sorry Anyway," how are you feeling?
Sorry Anyway is a song that's been around for a few years. It’s always been one of my favorites, hence the reason it is the first song I released. What’s different for me now is that I always thought I really knew the song, but I realized that what I really knew was a melody and a chord progression. Now, that it's been recorded and produced, in a lot of ways, I feel like I’m just starting to really know the song. It’s like an acquaintance becoming a good friend. What kind of thoughts are circling your mind following this release, as well as your upcoming release "One Mistake”?
I'm still really just starting to appreciate these songs are out there. It’s a tad on the surreal side knowing the potential for new listeners really from all over the world. What's been the most rewarding for me so far are the messages and emails I’ve been receiving asking when there will be more songs released. For me, that feedback is incredibly rewarding and is a huge motivator to keep me focused on writing new material. If listeners could take away one meaningful message from "Sorry Anyway," which would you hope it would be?
We live in a time where all too often that which is important to us gets lost in the mix, if not simply overlooked. Be it work, friends, social media, what have you, there are a lot of things that can suddenly take over and stand in the way of what is really important. Sorry Anyway is about someone realizing that what was really the best for them is now just a memory and something that was really important has slipped away, maybe forever. My hope is that folks will listen to Sorry Anyway and maybe do something today that keeps them from having to say sorry anyway tomorrow. How do you see your childhood self in the current music you create today?
I experienced a lot in my childhood and I try to draw on that I my music. I think as we get older our experiences often get filtered through the maze of age. When I write, I try to escape this and really draw on the purity of youth. It’s not easy and is always a challenge, but one thing that the childhood I experienced was raw emotion and that's what I hope comes across in my music. Can you describe how "Sorry Anyway" is a reflection of you? What kind of effect were you hoping to instill with this song release?
Sorry Anyway is not autobiographical, but it is about emotions and events I've seen people close to me experience. I've always said my goal in writing music is to create a vehicle for the listener to make my words theirs. To give the listener the chance to escape, even just for a few minutes, and get lost in the music.
