What inspired the album?
I've always wanted to create a cohesive body of work in the shape of an EP or album. I felt that after releasing a bunch of singles it was about time to put this record together. The songs have all been written at different stages, but they worked together sonically. The inspiration came from just that, of wanting to put together something that's cohesive and structured.
How different it is sonically as compred to your older work?
The singles I've put out have been a lot of fun and I've been able to dable in different genres through them such as pop-rock, rock, pop, grunge and punk-rock. The EP is rooted deep in rock as that's my forte and is a true reflection of how I am as an artist and listener. It doesn't stray too far away from the previous material, but we've sort of had it be more connected within rock music rather than have it multi-genre.
How do you think you have evolved as a musician since you first started?
Quite a bit. I'm learning something new each day and I suppose I'll never stop learning. From being just a bassist in a band to turning into a songwriter has been the biggest change for me. I enjoy songwriting a lot and I'm glad I decided to pursue it.
What comes first for you lyrics or the melody?
While writing the way it usually works for me is that I'll be noodling on the guitar and a particular chord progression would stick out that I like and I immediately start coming up with lyrics and melodies right then and there.
Tell us what emotion music evokes in you?
Music means a lot to me. It's my comfort whenever I'm happy or sad. It's like a big giant hug and I appreciate it tons. I'm glad to have music to turn to no matter how I feel.
