What do you think is the biggest lesson we can all take away from this past year?
For me, it’s slowing down and creating for the sake of enjoyment. Sometimes we get too wrapped up in “being productive”.
Tell us about how this project got started?
I never saw myself as a “solo artist” but I had more songs that didn’t fit my band at the time. I originally assumed it would just be a one time recording project, but I saw some touring opportunities from playing out and so I decided to just continue with it and see where it’d go.
Are you working on anything new / specific at the moment?
I am writing songs for a new record. I’m hoping to get back in the studio this year.
I also front a band called Stalemate and I play guitar in the live version of Sure, Machine
Experience working with a label?
Head2Wall Records put out my most recent solo release and Stalemate’s last album. They are an incredibly helpful team and I love their openness to ideas and directions. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive label.
Craziest memory from touring?
I have been touring for about six years and I have many great (and not so great) memories, but thinking back to my first west coast tour in 2014…it’s crazy to think about in retrospect. I had virtually no contacts out there at the time and relied on a lot of friends of friends. It taught me an important lesson in DIY/DIT ethics. Not to mention I was traveling the whole span of the tour alone, so it was a wild experience.
